750ml bottle. Poured a medium golden color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of oaky woodiness, fruity, and yeasty. Tastes of more fruitiness/apples, yeast, some funkiness, spicy, lighter wood, and yeasty. Alcohol burn in the finish. popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Interesting beer, though not entirely successful. The calvados barrel comes through with mostly sharp, boozy notes. Some green apple is lurking in there, but it’s just a bit harsh and mostly mixes in with the general fruitiness of the beer, which may be from the barrel - hard to tell. Aroma is a bit medicinal. Mustard is also fairly subtle and I mostly picked it up in the taste. Some caramel malt, some spice. Fairly dry. Mouthfeel is a tad thin but still pretty good. Not a bad looking beer - a cloudy yellow with a fizzy, dying head. BeerandBlues2 (13202) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Tap. Pours hazy tawny with spare head, flat retention. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toasted), light hops (woody), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of wood, alcohol, dates, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Flavor is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel, toffee), light hops (woody), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of wood, alcohol, dates, brown sugar, and vanilla. Full body, high warmth, low carbonation and creaminess with a dry finish. alexsdad06 (10265) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy peach color with a small white ring of bubbles. The aroma is tangy, tart fruits, woody, white grapes, with some herbal notes. The flavor has a burst of tart fruits, herbal, woody before the alcohol heat takes over. Much of the finish was dominated by alcohol. Medium bodied. Interesting, but too hot.

Bottle at ACBF 2011. Unfortunately, I was served from a bottle that had been opened the day before, and it seemed like the beer was not in its best condition. Pours glowing gold with a few lonely bubbles. Juicy, sour aroma, slightly funky. Has an odd flavor, lightly tart, slightly buttery, lightly sweet. Full bodied with soft carbonation, hot in the throat. Buttery finish, alcohol to spare, light dough, certainly warming. Wasn’t overly impressed.
