Picked this up on a recent visit to the CL brewery. Been looking forward to trying this for a few weeks now.

A - Pours a nice crisp "golden" yellow. Looks delicious with a good 1 finger head that remains throughout the enjoyment of this beverage.

S - Sweet, the apple scent is nice and refreshing. A great spring beer. You can smell the acidity of the apple and it offsets the scent of the Tripel nicely.

T - I think the yeast strain that CL uses is unique and sets their beers apart. You get the warmness of the apple brandy paired with a really tasty Belgian Triple.

D - Goes down well, the higher ABV sneaks up on you. You'll definitely be feeling it after 1 or 2 of these.

M - Another very well done beer by CL brewing. Love the fact that this stuff is local and I can swing by the brewery at any time to pick up a bottle (or sixtel for that matter)

3.78/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
