Tap: Murky copper with rich amber at the edges. Nearly nonexistent head. Tiny off-white collar. Huge sweet & borderline tart apple aroma that meshes perfectly with the strong underlying blanket of sweet caramel & toffee malts. Hints of spices like nutmeg & cinnamon with a touch of honey sweetness, too. Warmth brings forward lots more aromatic complexity; bready & buttery malts, a touch of currant, & even a hint of pineapple, which may be the only sign of Brett. Hints of apple pie. Nice. Flavor follows the aroma nicely with hints of soft cinnamon, green apples, toasted bread, sweet caramel, toffee drizzle, crackery crust malts, faint perfume-like hops, a touch of citrus, leading to a caramel, biscuit, & sweet apple finish. Not until about 20 minutes into my pour do I get a hint of mild funk near the tail-end on the palate. Very cheesy... Like old cheese rind. Other than that, not much Brett at all in the flavor. Seriously a very unique & very tasty old ale.

tap at 2013 michigan winter beer festival. amber with small head. this sounded crazy, so i had to try it. very strong beer with light apple. i can’t say i detect any brett tartness, but it’s still plenty good.
