COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 1 (2008) and Batch 2 (2010) of Captain Lawrence’s Extra Gold aged in apple brandy barrels. There’s nothing quite likes Mom’s apple pie…But I am willing to bet this beer is pretty darn close. An American Tripel, dry-hoped with Amarillo hops and aged in Apple Brandy barrels from one of this country’s oldest distilleries. The tropical aroma of the hops and the delicate apple aroma from the barrels are a perfect match

Bottle
Appearance: Slightly cloudy golden amber with short lasting white head
Aroma: Apple juice, slight sourness/vinegar
Taste: Starts a bit sweet, then transitions into a nice light apple flavor
Palate: Light body, sour tinge at the finish
Overall: Very light for a tripel, and the apple brandy comes out nicely. Alcohol is hidden except for a slight warming sensation.

Bottle chilled by the wife after cellar shopping. Pours golden with a white foam head that reduces to a small ring. Nose of green apples. Taste begins with some light cracker and flowers, green apple on the finish. Alchohol becomes noticable as it warms.

czar (4128) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
bottle share at hill farmstead’s pre-3rd anniversary. pours cloudy yellow without a head. sweet apples, mainly red ones, yeasty and light bretts, honeyed malts, some subtle floral and spicy notes, soft oaky notes - aged-cider-like. maybe batch 1 but hops are subdued and it unfortunately feels like an old and cheap apple pie. average to soft carbonation, medium body - sticky and sweet. meh.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Pours a murky golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma of apple, spices, sweet aromas. Taste is malty, yeasty, some calvados-like apples, sweet. Medium body and low carb. I was really happy when i saw this bottle open and had good expectation, and they fell off....

AdamJackson (2380) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Slightly hazy burnt orange slight gusher with a head that fades fast. Has an oaky sewage nose. Very dry earthy taste. Apples are present and so is this boozy alcohol burn at the finish. Abv feels more than it is. Very bland boring finish

Bottle (750 ml). Batch 1 I think. Small gusher. Thanks to the guy who shared it at Hill Farmstead 3rd anniversary bottle share. Hazy/murky (gushing certainly didn’t helped the appearance) yellow with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel, cider-like apple, spices and alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet with caramel, malt, spices, apples, alcohol and wood. Some sour notes. Medium body. Low carbonation. Decent beer, but I think it was over the hill. Quite complex though.
