COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 1 (2008) and Batch 2 (2010) of Captain Lawrence’s Extra Gold aged in apple brandy barrels. There’s nothing quite likes Mom’s apple pie…But I am willing to bet this beer is pretty darn close. An American Tripel, dry-hoped with Amarillo hops and aged in Apple Brandy barrels from one of this country’s oldest distilleries. The tropical aroma of the hops and the delicate apple aroma from the barrels are a perfect match

ADT. Hazy golden orange with a creamy white head. Citrus, hay, funky yeast, apple juice, pepper with light barrel notes. Full bodied with a warming finish. Excellent.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2017 Clear golden color. Medium sized, white head. Belgian yeasts, apples and oak in aroma. Same notes follow in taste. Sweet start , dry finish with wood bitterness. Noticeable notes of booze.

On tap at Blend Bar & Bisro in Hamilton, NJ. Medium gold color. Small creamy white head. Sweet malt nose hints at apple and brandy. Intense bittersweet apple flavor is mixed with big boozy notes. Quickly dries out and becomes astringent. Lots of alcohol warmth. Wow, this is quite bold. Nice lacing.

Cloudy golden colored pour, with a moderate white head leaving lots of lace. Yeasty apple aroma. Taste is hot with booze, followed by cinnamon and your favorite apple pie.. fresh baked of course. Sweet, but not overly so. Truly delicious beer. Great with vanilla ice cream in the afternoon shade.

Unique and amazing. Hot alcohol and fresh baked apple pie nose. Pours cloudy yellow with a frothy head. Lots of lace. Very sweet but hoppy finish keeps it in balance. Small bubbled spritzy carbonation crescendos into an impressive wash at the end. Don’t pass it by.

Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2017
On tap @ Blinds Tiger, the ’13 model. No head on this one. The beer itself is a cloudy deeper orange colored one, and it smells superb. Lots of cellar and wood up front. Musky apples, some apricot freshness. Really nice stuff. Wow, this was nice. Really aged gracely this. It has a nice oily texture in the mouth and as expected somewhat gentle in the carbonation department. It’s almost like a dry nutty cherry or a really dry aged white wine. Earthy and a little apple juice sweet. No alcohol detected at all. Superb. 16.06.2017

Bebum (1056) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Cloudy gold, covering lace. Full body, moderate flavor, little heat or carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel, short length. Mildly sweet, light bitter and crisp background. Monochromatic and weak flavor, some hop, could be apple or any other fruit character. Refreshing and harmless but disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Smells of apple and plenty of brandy like VSOP. Golden pour without much head. Some coriander. Smells better than it finishes. Like apples but finishes very boozy. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso

Alpha10 (815) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
2016/04/18 - Pours a hazy yellow honey colour with a foamy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is apple, tart citrus, cereal grain, wood and floral hops. Taste is apple, oak, cereal, citrusy-floral hops and alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly chewy with smooth carbonation and a juicy, warming finish. Interesting beer with just enough apple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Single bottle from Coastal in Branford CT. Poured into a stem glass. A cloudy light orange with a frothy off white head. Flavor is fruity and boozy - in a good way. Nice tart and sweet apple. Earthy-spice citrus hop profile perfectly balances the whole thing. Very nice take on this style.
