COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially brewed for Thomas Keller and his restaurants, the French Laundry, Per Se and Bouchon.<br /> Blue Apron Ale has a deep brown color and a palate redolent of oranges, caramel, bread and chocolate, with Belgian yeast adding a hint of spice. 100% bottle re-fermentation gives the beer a lively natural carbonation. Best served at 50 Deg. F, Blue Apron Ale is a fine accompaniment to beef, lamb, roasted game, cured meats, reuben sandwiches and good cheese.

I have longed to patron a Thomas Keller restaurant for years, and finally got the opportunity to dine at Per Se for our anniversary. The meal was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had, and in no small part due to this beer. Blue Apron was my sidekick through the entire adventure, and I canít think of a beer (perhaps Orval) that could have been multidimensional enough to pair with the wide variety of courses that were served. The citrus paired brilliantly with seafood; the chocolate malt brought out the richness of the red meats; and the yeast provided enough backbone to drink by itself. This beer gives me new-found respect for Brooklyn Brewing, and is a testament that beer can compliment a fine dining experience just as well as wine.

Pours ruddy brown with a nice toffee cream head. Little bit of haze. Nose of sweet brown sugar, molases and toast. Yeasty bread. Mild alcohol. Slight malt vinegar notes on very soft carbonation. Very clean with a bit of cocoa in the finish. (Per Se NYC March 17, 2013) 7.5/4/8/4/15.5

Bottle. Dark brown pour. Caramel malts, yeast, bread, light candy sugar, apple, light fruit, and a bit of spice. A nice non-offensive belgian ale, but at the same time itís also not too exciting.

Bottle @ patrickís. Brown pour with a modest amount of tan head. Belgian yeasts, dark fruits, chocolate, nuttty almost chicory like aroma and flavor notes. This brew maybe misclassified, closer to a dubbel.

The color is dark brown with a nice creamy head. The aroma and flavors are bready with raisin notes (like in a Westy 12 almost!).

popery (1455) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 8, 2010
This beer pours an opaque (at least in relatively low light), dark brown with a fine beige head that puffs up well and leaves good lacing. The nose is refined brown sugar, malt and good fruitiness of the plum/nectarine variety. I prefer the aroma to the flavor, which adds in a relatively strong phenol note. Feel is smooth and fairly creamy. The drinkability is high because itís really an excellent beer to pair with food. Itís a strong, relatively unique flavor that doesnít dominate the palate.
