10 ounce draft at Bad Apple. Cereal and bread yeast in the aroma. Clear yellow appearance and heavy lacing. Apples and grain flavors jump out. It's a big and assertive tasting beer, a little like a cider. Medium bodied, crisp and bubbly. Overall good if you're into this style.

750 ml bottle shared by Keir’s drunk ass at the Side Project release- thanks again, Keir! 2006 vintage. Pours a semi-cloudy deep golden color with no head. Notes of caramel, dried fruits, sugar, cookies, biscuit, and some mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. Probably better when it isn’t 7 years old. I’ll try a newer vintage someday soon.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
on tap at Duckworths (NC)
Pour is a bit light for the style. The clear amber body is covered by a bone head that has great retention
Mouthfeel: near medium body with appropriate, medium carbonation.
Taste and Aroma: Plenty of alcohol esters and Belgian yeast. Also rather sweet. Wild yeast in the flavor that is not apparent in the nose, and ultimately produces an unpleasant aftertaste.
O: unusual for style, this Belgian ale was disappointing but should appeal more to folks who like wild yeast in their beers more than I do.
