Reviewed from notes. Thanks to bmanning for opening this as a slight "fallish" beer we managed to convince Amyliz4 to let us drink during the pumpkin beer tasting.

Poured into a tulip. Appearance is a slightly hazed golden apricot color with a nice head and a bit of lacing. Nose is quite nice with a good bouquet of green apple and some slight sweetness. A bit tart. Taste is light apple with a bit of spice. Good medium feel with a nice carbonation level. Another nice brew from the folks in Pleasantville.

A huge thanks goes out to the kind BA who sent this bottle my way. This was another one I had been trying to get off my list for a while. Served at cellar temp and poured into a snifter, this one was consumed on 01/27/2009.

The pour was very nice. Light hazy amber with a good bit of carbonation sneaking in from the bottom of the glass. Rich head of wite came up over the top and settled down effortlessly into a thin layer of maybe a half an inch that hung out there for a good long while.

The aroma was wonderful. Lots of apple and oak aromas, hints of peaches and a light grain smell. Really very full with the apple like smell coming right up to you without being over powering. Nice touches of bourbon now showing up as it warmed as well. Smooth as could be as I took a big first sip. Warming, with bourbon and apple coating the tongue straight away. Mellow carbonation was just right to let the flavor pop. After taste was a mix of oak, apple, light vanilla hints and a bit of bourbon, masterfully done. Not sure the ABV on this but being a triple I can assume it was up there, but it was one of the most mellow, smooth drinking triples I have ever run across.

Overall this was about as solid of a big beer as you are going to run across. Really just wonderfully done and I am glad I got a chance to try it.

An American Triple Ale aged in apple brandy barrels. Pours a slightly dusty golden color, perhaps just beyond the lovibond of a real pilsner. The barrel effect produces a subtle and noticeable vanilla/crisp apple note. The rest of the drinking experience is that of pleasant beer booze. The overall 88 score (at this time) doesn't do it justice. This is a great beer for those looking for an elegant drinkable cognac-like beer moment. Classy beer, and as one has already put it, this concoction is about as good as it gets. For 11.00/4, it is bargain.
