I picked this up today at the release.

It pours a gorgeous golden color. Seriously this might just be the truest gold color I have seen in beer, however, it is under carbonated as there is little to no head.

The nose is dead on to their description as "like Mom's apple pie". Lots of apple brandy notes with hints of vanilla, oak, and spicebox.

The palate is a mirror of the nose with a slight bit more emphasis on the brandy character and a pleasant buttery quality.

It is fairly easy to sip except for a slight booziness that shines through on the finish. There is enough acidity to balance any perceived sweetness but the heat seems to be a little misplaced. I wonder if with time it won't come together more and any heat would fade.

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet Belgian malt with light apple brandy notes. Taste is a very drinkable mix of Belgian malt with light residual candi sugar notes and some light Brandy notes also noticeable. Body is full with good carbonation. I quite enjoyed that one with loads of nice drinkability notes and the Brandy notes rounding off some of rough edges.
