The bottle says "apple flavoring" or something exactly similar (forgive me for not having one on hand). As was said, they're brewing "beer" in the simplest sense, filtering, then back sweetening it with a apple flavored syrup from beverage syrup manufacturer.

Cool, thanks. I lived in the Atlanta area for many years and they're not many apple orchards in the area. However, it would make sense that North GA would have the right climate for apples. Thanks.

You bet! Some damn good apples too if I might add. There's one orchard in particular that a brewpub in savannah gets their cider from. It's VERY dry...too dry for my liking. The orchard itself makes some FANTASTIC hard cider though. Yeah...the metro area isn't exactly the best area for an orchard! Lol.

The concept is cool to me but the execution is very fake tasting especially true with the strawberry version.
BTW graff is delish. I had some at my last homebrew club meeting.

I'm actually a fan of the Strawberry Redds. I don't care at all for the apple one, but the strawberry is light and refreshing and just a bit sweet. Kind of like a strawberry wine cooler but not as thick and sweet. It's not something I'd buy for every day, but I think it works great as a lawnmower type beer.
