Bottle shared during the 2016 RB Best Awards. Many, many thanks to J. Hux for sharing this treat! Pours clear copper-gold with a few bubbles. Big juicy apple aroma, with light honey, clover, ripe apple. Hearty sweet flavour, rich and smooth, with some apple sauce, light caramel, suggestions of berries. Medium to full bodied, and lightly chewy. Warming on the finish, highly sweet, with lots more ripe apples and juicy apple sauce. Excellent. Absolutely delicious.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Huge thanks to Julien. Nice amber color to this. Big time acidity to this, which really helps with all the vanilla, caramel, and apple pie filling. Subtle spice, even feels like there’s a bit of oak character to it. Some toasted nuts, cake, honey, and baked apple. Great mouthfeel. Damn good.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle at the RB Awards, and I think JulienHuxley shared it. Thanks, Julien, for sharing this long-time want of mine! Pours a hazy amber-orange with no head and minimal legs. Coating apple, sweet and lightly tart, with brown sugar, honey, vanilla, and hazelnut. Medium-plus bodied, with a coating, sweet, tangy, barely tart mouthfeel and low carbonation. Great balance of sweetness and acidity. Has held up incredibly well. Awesome stuff.

Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Great acidic apple nose. Dark gold, oily and thick. Very sweet apple flavor, lots of the skin, syrupy and a bit too sweet but pretty good balance.

375 ml bottle to taster (thanks JulienHuxley). Looks good; a still, fairly transparent brownish orange. Smells good too; a nice balance of concentrated apple and soft hazelnut. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart full-bodied mouthfeel. Lightly warming, but pleasantly so. Tasty stuff.
