I really liked this beer; very complex yet so well balanced. Hid the 12% really well, I can see why this is so highly ranked.

A Ratebeer legend! Hazy blond. Bretty, lightly woody, good appley character. Earthy, a little slickness maybe from butter or pedio.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden amber with 2cm of fluffy, light tan head. Inconspicuous granny smith aroma veiled by a very sweet maltiness with barnyard/hay eccentricities. 12% ABV is cloaked by the malty sweetness, until the alcoholic apple sugariness presents itself in the aftertaste. Challenging and delightful.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 Aroma of tart and sour. Flavour even better - big load of the same, but quickly balanced by apple sweetness. Ends with return of soure flavours. Lingering apple fizzy tartness - a tasty, not objectionable sherbert. Beautiful.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Cloudy orange pour with a big fluffy white head. Nose is very funky, hay, granny smiths, tart, acidic citrus. Taste is full on tart and mouth puckering apples. Super tarty and funky, not for the faint hearted

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer has brilliant subtle apple aromas, with the both the sweetness and tartness of the apples making into the beer’s aroma. The appearence is a transparent golden yellow-orange hue with a touch of cloudyness from residual yeast and apple sediment. The taste is a appley sweet beginning followed by a more malty taste and moves to a good tart palate that complements the apple and malty balance. Overall, an absolutely delicious apple beer.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours dark golden, one finger head. Aromas are dry cider / apples in the main, and taste follows, with a bit of sour/apples/tart/funk entering. Overall, less complex than the high score suggests. Stupidly high ABV tho for a beer than drinks in a throw-down manner.

Bottle. [thanks bluebetty]
Pours hazy amber with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma has funk, red apples, caramel and fruit sugars. Highish carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, sticky and fat. Yet it maintains balance by funky, fresh apple, some strawberry notes and its warming viniousness. Pure candy!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours a dark golden amber color. Two finger light brown head. Great body and retention to this.
Funk, horse blanket, straw, and crisp caramel apple
More funk and straw with granny smith and lady pink apples. Bits of sour apple tart.
Long lasting apple tartness mixed with funk and sour.
Fun beer that is scary drinkable and has an insane well hidden ABV.
