Thanks mom. Pours a slightly cloudy straw amber with one finger of off-white head. Nose is lightly acidic with a large brett presence, pineapple and fresh cut citrus. Flavor is really nice, very dry and citrusy. Zesty with fresh pineapple and heavy brett influence. Lightly tannic and cider, definitely an apple component to this. Uber interesting.

Initial cider aroma, sour apples. Definitely fruity. Murky orange amber pour, silky sand head, completely coats the glass. More fruit in the taste, far away from normal BW territory. Slick, silky body, slippery, no burn. Very deceiving. Tasty, waiting for the kick. Apples in the finish as well. I will probably regret this tomorrow.

Perfect looking beer! Deep deep clear light amber body, lots of very fine sparkle and a huge fluffy golden white head leaving thick lacing; A nose that definitely doesnt live up to the looks, lightly metallic with actually quite plain malt aromas, the fine calvados aromas shows them self in a very elegant mixed smooth and sharp way behind all the malts; The body is big and really showing itself but it is slightly confused, lots of malt fill, but this is mixed with quite a bit of sharp fruitiness, dont know if it is from the calva but it doesnt go well; Long finish that also has this slightly metallic touch, very balanced amount of pleasant aromas, again there is lots and lots of fruits almost acid like and I find it to much, the late aromas are really good and a pleasant mix of calvados and malts. Very interesting beer, but a little to far from perfect.

Bottle with our Mes, cheers our kid. Murky orange with a few floaty bits, thin white head. Great smell, can really pick out the oak aging, apple, tarty ciderness. Flavoutr similar with a lovely sweet and sour finish. Very good.

Bottle at the Triple Rock Sour & BA Fest. Pours cloudy blonde with a nice beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a sweet malt flavor with some banana and a bitter oaky finish. The alcohol is well-hidden.
