My Carmapple Romance
A Note on This Beer
When I was a kid, my buddies and I loved making caramel apples. We’d start with crisp, tart Granny Smiths, dip them in gooey caramel, then roll ‘em in crushed peanuts, chocolate chips, or whatever tasty toppings struck our fancy!
And, each sweet n' sour sip of My Carmapple Romance whisks my imagination back to those carefree times!
The creative team at Washington’s Sig Brewing — whom, as you might’ve guessed, is made up of quite a few former-emo kids — developed this nostalgic Sour after voting on ten different new beer ideas. Naturally, the memories of black-dyed hair, tight jeans, and eyeliner won.
To make My Carmapple Romance, the brewers conditioned the beer on tons of tangy apples. Then, to get the caramel flavor, they caramelized a bit of apple concentrate in a small kettle and infused the sugars into the batch after primary fermentation.
It tastes just like biting into a lip-smacking caramel apple, or licking one of those caramel apple lollipops kids get on Halloween. It even pours a playful shade of kelly green!
You don’t have to be a kid — emo or otherwise — to enjoy the creative candy flavors in this crushable brew. But, being young at heart? That definitely helps.

Sooo many delicious flavors
Taste exactly like a caramel apple sucker.
It definitely delivers on tasting like green apple with a hint of caramel flavor....not bad but also not great. Tastes a bit like weird kool aid. It was alright and it was definitely not like anything else i’ve ever tried but i don’t think i’d get it again.
When I was a young boy my father took me into the kitchen to drink a brew he made, he said “son when you grow up will you be the drunkard of the household, the family and the clan?” He said “will you out drink them, the hardcore, and all the light weight drinkers, the brews that they have made?” “Because one day I’ll leave you, a deadbeat, to fuel your need for liquor, to join the beer parade”
Lovely green color with a clean and crisp green apple flavor. Not nearly as sticky or caramel packed as I had hoped but let’s be real… I bought it mostly to make MRC puns at the next cookout.
nice hints of each nothing overpowering
Exactly as advertised, taste on point. Not grossly sweet, but what you'd expect from that classic 'pop. Only lost half a star because something about it reminded me of red bull. Still, incredibly delicious (and beautiful)!
Unique sweetness to it but not overwhelming, good tart apple flavor.
Carmel Apple Candy!
would have enjoyed a bit more caramel flavor but it was very good
