Reviewed from notes taken last Friday.

A- Slightly cloudy golden body with a silky white head. One finger head forms and retains nicely for a high ABV aged beer. Creamy ring leaves patchy lace.

S- Oaky vanilla sweetness is nice from the barrels. A good apple note brings on a green apple candy feel but alcohol keeps that from getting too crazy. Some yeast spiciness as well. Apple oak blast.

T- Bone dry and edgy brandy comes out in the forefront. Fresh oak with some broken down vanilla hints. Pretty dried out, actually very dry from alcohol and barrel influence. Big green apple up front.

MF- Moderately carbonated and bone dry with a good amount of alcohol heat. Some bitterness in the finish of a silky body. 3.75

Apple brandy big in this with some good barrel influence.

Thanks to myself for this. Picked up at DeCicco's in Ardsley en route to NYC. Shared at a tasting last week.

Pour is glowing palish orange with light haze. A thick white head retains pretty well, becoming a slight cap by the end, some lace left. Good appearance considering the beer.

The brandy barrel definitely makes its presence known in the scent with definite apple, oak, and alcohol; not really overpowering but not alot of other flavors there. Toasted bread, Belgian yeast, some earthiness.

Some apple in the taste but more of a general brandy/alcohol/oak presence is what stands out. A bit more fruitiness in general than in the nose (grapefruit, some orange), with yeasty bread, vanilla, and some bubblegum. Good flavors, seems a bit muted though.

Good mouthfeel, feels big with carbonation on the lower end. Boozy, but adds to the beer more than it detracts.

Big beer, the brandy barrel usage is unique and fits nicely here. Tasty although I was hoping for something a bit more.

golden pour clear with a finger I head. Smells of apples, wine, very boozy but so awesomely fruity I can't stop smelling it. this is honestly one of the most mindblowing beers I've ever had. Wood, apple, bourbon (bartender corrected me, it's brandy).. So boozy yet so sweet. This is amazing. full body, low carb.. Def a sipper. this is by far one of the best beers I've ever had. It's in it's own completely different category, coming from someone whoe really isn't that into tripel style Belgian beers.
