Bistro Grande Apple & Cranberry Crumble
Energy City Brewing
A Note on This Beer
I had this friend, Mike, who used to only hang with me for my apple crumble recipe. He’d pop right over whenever he found out I had one in the oven!
Could I blame him? Absolutely not! I’d stuff each luscious pan full of freshly sliced green apples, sprinkled with a healthy medley of spicy cinnamon and granulated sugar. The topping? Crisp yet soft like fresh-out-of-the-oven biscuits, dusted with brown sugar, and drizzled with a bit of organic honey.
Needless to say, that friendship didn’t last long. So, today I’m sharing my stash of Energy City’s brand-new Bistro Grande Apple & Cranberry Crumble with my loving wife.
The brewers at Energy City jammed today’s Berliner Weisse with apples, cranberries, cinnamon, and brown sugar. And, it already sports a whopping 4.47 rating on Untappd!
Just listen to the crumble-brew lovin’ fans going bonkers alongside me and my wife:
- “This is phenomenal! The fruit flavors are strong with a hint of cinnamon. Sad that I didn't buy more…” @Matthew D.
- “Perfection. Don’t sleep on this.” @Nick B.
- “This. Is. A. Mazing!!” @Kevin R.
All I’m saying is, if you’re going to share your stash of Apple & Cranberry Crumble with somebody, make sure you choose them wisely. It deserves to be sipped and savored alongside those who truly care for you, AND the craft!
With Tavour, it's easy to beer it forward! Just head over to Tavour.com/gifts to send a gift box or gift card to the craft beer lover in your life. Cheers!

Tasted just like an apple crumble. Was sad when it was all gone.
This is like applesauce in a can! So flavorful and a pleasure to enjoy
What witchery is this? Apple pie in a glass.
Tasted exactly like pie but too sweet to enjoy the entire thing
Energy City does it again. It tastes exactly as the beer is described “ apple cranberry crumble” could be a dessert beer.
Tastes like apple pie! Crust and all! Very easy to drink!
This tasted amazingly, energy brewing still hasn’t let me down. That’s like a squeeze cranberry and apple apple sauce. Wish I would have gotten two or three of them.
Arguably more a cocktail than a beer...but this might be the most delicious thing I’ve gotten from Tavour. I’d give my left leg to get more of this. The aroma of crust and fruit and the ripe taste of rich roasted apples
Smoothie like texture. Wife loved it too, she’s not a big beer drinker. Tastes just like a fruit crumble pie.
Wow. Just wow. I cannot believe how well they’ve nailed the crumble part of this. That salty flaky taste of dough. Followed by a boozy thanksgiving cider drink almost.
They really nailed this flavor. It’s a cider but I can definitely taste cranberry.
Exactly as advertised! Apple and cranberry crumble in a can! Delicious!
The strong flavor of cranberry overwhelms everything else making it hard to truly enjoy. I can only imagine drinking this again over thanksgiving dinner...with A LOT of turkey. I will definitely PASS on the future.
Great cinnamon notes, delicious sweet apples and tart cranberry. Definitely a favorite.
The cinnamon felt a little strong on the first sip but very good beer. Tastes just like the name suggests
Dusty brick/blood orange, no acidity, brown sugar aromas, moms apple crisp with cranberries, creamy with mild effervescence
So this is like an apple cranberry milkshake. From the start of popping the top, to pouring it in a glass. It came out of the can like a creamy apple cranberry drink, my daughter's boyfriend thought it was the bomb. He's not as well versed in craft beer as myself. It was great on the cinnamon and vanilla, plus the apples and cranberries gave it just the right amount of sweetness and tartness.
Like a liquid apple pie. Apples, cinnamon, pie crust, cranberry. Delicious.
This deserves more than 5 stars, this tastes like Thanksgiving or Christmas desert that Grandma baked with love. First you get the tartness from the cranberry then comes the apple pie with just the right amount of cinnamon spice and finally the pie crust comes in to package it all together into one delicious sip after another. I wish I bought as many of these as I could.
Tasty but a little too pulpy for me. Definitely taste pie crust which is cool.
Perfect apple crab cinnamon
Very apple pie tasting. Probably great during fall.
Awesome flavor, make sure it’s blended well!
Tastes like apple pie in a glass
Apple pie with cinnamon
Fireeeee! U Really can taste the brown sugar, not to sour not to sweet she’s perfect :)
Apple pie with cinnamon absolutely delicious
Reminds me of Thanksgiving!!!
Taste just like a apple piece with crumble crust
Delicious and like a slice of Thanksgiving in a glass. Part apple pie and part cranberry sauce. Absolutely delicious! Two Thumbs Up!
Grandmas apple pie
Surprisingly good for a change of pace
Bistro is always great 😊
Good taste of tart apple and sweet, cinnamon crumble. That being said, a little too sweet for drinking a whole can.
Amazing combo delicious. Tastes like a pie
Solid apple with cinnamon crumble/cobbler taste. With cranberry present but not overwhelming.
This was so refreshing and perfect dessert option. Sweeter than I expected though
Eh no pie taste for me.. spiced cider for sure. Not my fave
Words cannot fully express just how delicious this was. After my first sip I was sad because I knew it was going to be empty soon! I am absolutely going to be buying from Energy City again!
Well that's damn tasty! Very well balanced mix of cranberry & apple, with a cinnamon backing that completes the blend. Nicely done, & VERY drinkable!
My girl loved it the second she took a sip
Could be one of my favorite all time beers. Fantastic!
Literally apple crumble in a can! Delicious!
Just like warm apple pie.
Taste just like a apple cranberry crumble breakfast pastry. Little to much cinnamon for me.
Absurdly good. It's literally like drinking a pie.
Apple and cinnamon on the nose. Crazy thick mouthfeel with tons of cinnamon apple and a bit of tartness towards the end. The flavor is incredible, but I have to say the pulp may just be a little more intense than expected.
This was freaking amazing hands down the best brew company ever!!!!!!
Delicious. Tastes like apple juice with hints of cinnamon and cranberry.
Fruity, creamy and full. Tastes like a spiked cider smoothie.
Very nice! You get the distinction of every separate flavors or Apple, cranberry, and the slight spicy aromatic of cinnamon. It's a very enjoyable brew.
Smells just like an apple pie. Each flavor is distinct and perfectly fits one another. Excellent brew
Tastes like your eating grandmas homemade apple pie! This is delicious as it gets
Fizzy apple cranberry cider
Tastes like the most amazing Cranberry apple smoothie you've ever had the pleasure to put in your mouth.
Gotta give it, tastes like a fizzy cranberry-apple tart, a little on the acidic side, but worthy of being called dessert in a can
Incredibly delicious beer. Great profile. Very much like a pie
Deng took a sip and instantly thought about Christmas this is what beers supposed to do amazing flavor
Apple crumble hint of cranberry very much like a slushy xxl
Delicious. Literally tastes like an apple pie. Just the right amount of apple, cranberry and cinnamon.
Absolutely stunning. Tastes like an apple pie with vanilla ice cream I regret only buying two.
Taste like you’re drinking apple pie
So good apple,cranberry and cinnamon shine.Thanksgiving in my mouth!!
Wouldn’t dare say best beer I’ve ever had, but easily the most crushable alcoholic beverage I’ve consumed
Perfection! It's like consuming a liquefied Apple Pie Crumble on a festive winter night.
Yummy perfect dessert beer!
Amazing Pie taste! Delicious!
Way too much cinnamon
A bit too sweet for my liking
Literal dessert in a can
Absolutely excellent. Tons of cinnamon, apple and granola like flavors complimented beautifully with cranberry. A must pick up.
It was good for my palate
Perfect balance of apple/cranberry and brown sugar/cinnamon.
Nailed the flavors
Apple cobbler in a can. Almost tastes like a cider. Love it!
Absolutely nailed the flavor!!! It is truly like a dessert in a can. I have to say this is my all time favorite cider. Now, if I can only find where to buy more!?!?
Tastes like apple pie, wow
Cinnamon brown sugar over load!
Toss a slice of apple pie in a blender with a few shots of rum and this is what you get. It’s lovely.
Apple pie a la mode!!! Love the cinnamon and hint of cranberry!
It's a very thick beer but your taste buds will thank you for buying it.
Anything from Energy City is pure platinum. This brew tastes and smells as the label would suggest. These guys know how to brew. Anything they sell I’m buying
Pure pie in a can. Love everything I've had from Energy City
Love the cinnamon
Smooth mouth feel with all apple & cinnamon flavor. This is Delicious!! Please bring it back!
It tastes like you are drinking a pie.
Little too much cinnamon, it overpowered everything else.
Tastes just like an Apple crumble
Delicious and well balanced. No individual flavor is over powering. Super tasty.
It really does taste like an apple crumb pie
I could drink this all day
Feels like fall. Delicious.
Tastes exactly as advertised, like a delicious cup of fall
This bistro was an adventure like all the others I’ve had but extremely solid!
Smells just like apple & cranberry crumble
Tastes like apple pie
Straight up a cold spiced apple cider with a thickness. Spiced well but can only enjoy one every now and then. Pretty yummy
Taste just like an apple pie. I want more.
J - 4.50 S - 3.75
A fucking apple pie....
Great taste! I feel like I rather drink one of these during the holiday because it tastes just like spiked apple crumble pie but still very good any time of the year.
Super sweet cider, like apple pie in a can. Pulpy, but not in a bad way
Like an apple cinnimmon crumb cake
Bistro always is a hit
Exactly as advertised. Nice dessert beer with ample amounts of all ingredients. Probably my favorite from Tavour.
Simply delicious taste like a cinnamon apple soda
Just like a slice of apple pie
Like a bite of cranberry/apple pie
Another brilliant Energy City Brewing Bistro Grande! Great flavor along with a thick smooth texture.
Was so happy to get this in the 2 pack. All flavors spot on. Great drink!
I was surprised how much this actually reminded me of an apple crumble. Not overly sweet, just the right balance of tart and a little spice.
Apple pie in a can
My favorite brewery’ always on point. Straight smoothie
Prefer this over its super sour counterparts
Pure delicious. Tastes like fall. Apple, cinnamon, brown sugar. Absolutely beautiful.
This is a good one. Tastes like it's name. Cranberry apple pie in a can. Will definitely get again.
Very good, sweet but not too sweet
Liquid apple sauce...very tasty
Very apple. Very crumble.
This one is really nice! Taste just like apple cranberry pie!
Apple cranberry pie in a beer!!
It absolutely taste the apples the cranberries and the sweetness of a desert.... a bit too sweet for me ....
A lot of cinnamon
This tastes like an apple pie, but somehow not overly sweet.
Tastes just like a cross between an apple and cranberry pie, delicious!
This is like drinking an apple pie. Delicious.
Like drinking a tart pastry. Amazing.
Dangerously easy to drink. Smooth and sweet
Always amazing. Energy City doesn't miss.
Tasty!!! Absolutely delicious ❤️
Definitely makes me think of Christmas
This tastes like Thanksgiving in a can.
Mind blowing phenomenal. Energy City was on their A have as usual. Bistro Grande = Super Delicious = Always Crate!🤣🤣👊🏻👊🏻🍻🍻
The crumble taste was a bit TOO much but was pretty decent.
I want this at Thanksgiving instead of dessert.
Thought it was delicious, a little on the sweet side! Tasted like I was drinking an Apple Pie! 🤪
Pretty much perfect. Tastes exactly like described.
Delicious. Light but full of flavor. Delivers on its name!
Wonderful apple and cinnamon flavor. Made for the fall.
Hints of cinnamon come through
Perfect. Tastes exactly A described. It was a delicious after dinner drink. Huge apple crumble flavor, the tartness of the cranberry is on the front followed by sweet apple and gram cracker crumble. Almost tastes like warm caramel over hot apples.
Fantastic. I had this before and was so happy to see it again. I’ll jump on it if it comes back around
Thick, juicy and risky scrumptious
One of the best “pie” type beers I’ve had yet. The fruit comes through, with perfect amounts of cinnamon and sugar.
Tastes likes a holiday pie!
Sweet apple with the tart cranberry pairs wonderfully! I have enjoyed all beer from this brewery!!
Fantastic. Not overly thick. Perfect combination of apple and cranberry and cinnamon.
Blown away by how much this tastes like a crumble. Not overdoing it on the cinn at all, just the perfect amount
Apple, cinnamon, sweet, tart, thick
Flavors were spot on and went really well together in this smoothie.
Just like eating a apple & cranberry pie
My favorite of the EC fruit flavored beers I’ve tasted. Sweet, but not overwhelming. Almost like comfort food. Can I call it a comfort beer?
Delicious. Very smooth and refreshing. Feels like you are drinking pie. Will drink again.
Thanksgiving in a can. And further evidence that Energy City can do no wrong.
Liquid thanksgiving absolutely.
Cc my last energy city review, it tasted better than some people’s IRL apple cranberry crumbles
Cinnamon and apple stand out in aroma and flavor. Very pie-like ! Medium bodied fruit smoothie with light tartness. Nice Pastry Sour !!
Crisp, liquid apple pie
Energy City has the best beers!
This is the ideal Christmas morning beer.
Tastes just like a slice of apple cobbler, but much too sweet for me.
Description is accurate. Reminds me of apple crumble with loads of cinnamon. Drank from the can, last few sips were thicc.
Soooooo good. Taste just like an apple pie. Perfect balance of apple, cranberry, and cinnamon.
Thoroughly enjoyed this. Apple pie in a can.
So so good!
Tastes exactly as advertised! So surprised this is a beer. Very good as a dessert. Better than the food version.
Surprisingly delicious. Strong apple sauce flavor with cinnamon finish. Another great brew from energy city
One of the best fruited sours I've ever had
So good! Tastes just like apple pie! Energy City hasn’t let me down yet!
Absolutely amazing. Apple beers are rare to come by, and this overshot my expectations
Wow this was great....Apple cran for days! Thanksgiving in a can!
Oh me oh my I can’t explain this beer must be me everything. Cinnamon goodness just like my Mom’s fresh baked apple pie’s when I was a youngster.

How is this beer!
Honestly tastes just like you were eating a boozy apple cranberry crumble. Wonderfully flavoured
If you had apple pie moonshine this reminded me of that a lot crazy beer & crazy good stuff!
Like eating a pie!! very good! packed with flavor,
reminds me of grandmas baking
for the first win this company did. it come to play with the flavor
I didn’t drink this one, but my wife gave it a 5/5! She’s a Weiss drinker and said it was one of her favorites, which is saying something as native Milwaukeeans w great German options abound.
