Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Draft at the Old School in March 2013 - Oostvleteren, Belgium. Pours clear caramel with a light, tan foam head. Dank apples dominate the aroma. Big sweet flavor with notes of toasted bread, light chocolate, earth and burnt leaves. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish with lots of sticky sugars, bitter apple peel, brown sugar, ripe and dank apples, hints of coffee. A novel beer but it doesn’t really come together.

Draft @ ’t Schooltje – thx! for the ride tderoeck! Dark red ruby amber, slightly brown with an almost gone beige head. Nose is surprisingly vinous, liquorish, sweet spices, red fruits, light alcohol, thick toffee, dark malts,… Taste is liquorish, toffee, once again oddly vicious, sour wood, spices, toffee, sticky malty, not really getting apple, maybe like peel, very, very different from what expected, warming, slight alcohol in the finish,... Body is quite sticky,… Interesting.

Theydon_Bois (16885) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Tap at Het Oude Schooltje, Oostvleteren - 23/03/13. Slightly obscured chestnut brown with a thin tan head. Nose is dark malt, apples, light smoke, toffee. Taste comprises brown sugars, caramel, apples, burnt notes, a little booze, like a sugary toffee and apple crumble. Full end of medium bodied with fine carbonation, dry and crisp in the finish with a little booze. Excellent stuff!

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Had on draft at the Schoolhouse! Pours clear golden orange with a small white head. Nose is apple, hay straw and bready with some tannic sour notes as well. The flavor is sweet with a good tart balance. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light and the finish is long.

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2012
Draft @ ‘t Schooltje, merci Carlo. Brune/cuivre, col beige léger. Arôme présente de suite le profil du cidre et de Bompon avec un bouquet malté qui perce en retrait. On retrouve la dominance des pommes surtout ce côté pelure fermentée. Palais est tout autre. Ici on alterne sur le cidre mais avec un profile complétement centré vers le malté. Au final, on retrouve un hybride entre cidre et bock. Malt procure une douceur caramel, sucré/grillé qui est formidablement bien placé avec ce fini de bock dans un type fruité noir-allemand qui est compensé par des pommes légèrement acidulées. Le bourbon est discret et je n’ai quasi rein pu déceler. Reste néanmoins une bière-cidre solide. Fin de bouche reste aigre-douce avec un petit penchant pour un style rappelant la Tarte Tatin.
