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

Bottle thnx to Rob. Pours unclear blonde, small white head. Smell is sharp, grains, some very mild booze. Taste is full, bit bitter in the beginning, directly overtaken by a full apple ( not chemical, really natural ) aspect, as well as some oak. Very decent MF and carbo. The sweetness is perfectly in balance with the boitterness and the apple flavor. Best apple beer to date

Hazy gold, with a half inch of whipped cream head. Aroma is appley, with citrusy, perfumey, floral hops. Taste is the same, with booze, and jolly rancher. This stuff is pretty terrific. $3/12oz

Way too sweet and boozy. The hoppiness would be interesting if you could actually taste it over all the apple brandy...

Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Pours a cloudy pale orange to yellow with a large white head. light fruitiness with some pepper notes and some hay. Taste is full of fruit, mostly citrus. Not really picking out any barrel character, but the overall beer is extremely enjoyable, nice dry finish, but hindered by a touch of warming

3.8
GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2015
2014 bottle thanks to vtafaro. Pours sparkling clear orange golden with Persistent white foam. Good lacing. Nose is mildly funky, hints of Brett, tamarind, moving to buttery oak and excellent barrel. Taste is barrel forward with white chocolate and hints of calvados, mid palate is not as sweet or boozy as expected. Finish is chalky, dry, neutral. Easier to drink than expected with more complexity in the aroma than expected.
