Lilja (1637) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Smakprov på CBC 2014. Smak och doft av äpple, trä, ljus sirap, honung, äppelmos, calvados och fattoner. Rund, söt med skalbeska och lätt alkohol som avrundar detta fantastiskt goda dessertöl.

Bottle at a bottle share. Holy crap this is amazing... the first blast you get is of the apple, which shocked me based on the style. There is some definite sweetness that comes through from the apple, the brandy, and the Belgian yeast, but the sweetness is balanced out well. It’s quite smooth and easy to drink, yet slightly rich. Great brew.

Vignale (2064) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2014
Smakprov på CBC 2014. Äntligen ett calvadosfatlagrad öl och en trippel passar ju riktigt bra. Mycket calvadoskaraktär med söta välmogna äpplen, äppelskal, mustiga och murriga fattoner med ett lätt drag av ruttna äpplen. Sött, kanske lite väl men mest väldigt gott.

Bottle... Poured copper-orange with a thin head. Nose had a huge amount of brandy character. Nice tasting, apple brandy, oak, booziness. Also malted grains, bread, a big amount of sweetness with faint yeast notes. But that brandy really over-powered this beast.

750ml bottle poured a light amber orange color with aromas of apple brandy soaked bread with some light spice. Flavors were livht oak, bread, some spice and a decent amount of apple brandy. This was outstanding, so glad I have another bottle of this liquid gold!

750 ml bottle served in a Westbrook snifter. Bottled September 10, 2012. Big thanks to rnorgart for the bottle! A: Pours a hazy amber color with a frothy yellowish head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick film and leaves a lot of soapy lace down the glass. S: There are a ton of awesome smells going on. Brandy barrel, some light green apple with a subtle tartness. Sweet malt bill, a little pale in nature with minimal yeasty notes coming through. A little oaky as well with a touch of funk. T: The base tripel really comes on in the flavor profile with the accompanying brandy barrel. Apple tartness, fruity Belgian yeast with a little bubble gum. Mild funk with some dry oak barrel. M: Medium light bodied with a very yeasty and dry finish. Ample medium high carbonation that makes pretty drinkable for a drying, 10% tripel. O: The nose was excellent on this beer and it was nice that the base tripel still shown through on the taste. The few other barrel treatments I’ve had of this beer have been a little too barrel forward so this was a nice treat. Serving type: bottle

Bottle at CGBD. Pours orange with a white head. Peachy fruity, hints of brandy, light wood, light spicy yeast, and some light lingering fruity and hoppy notes. Big overall, but (relatively) well restrained on the barrel aspect. Good stuff.

rbrazell (1656) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle from Sweetgrass at the Westbrook beer dinner. Hazy deep gold with bits of sediment a a fluffy white head. Aroma of Brett funk, wood, leather, brandy and touch of candy sugar. Sweet in the entry with apple brandy starting to show through more with more funk and oak. So easy to drink for the alcohol. Great beer.

jbruner (2318) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2013
April 2012 bottle at the Sweet Grass Dairy Westbrook tasting. Pours a hazy golden yellow with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of boozy oak, Belgian yeast, grainy biscuit, and sweet brandy. Taste follows, like a big glass of sweet bready yeast. Nice stuff.
