A: Hazy golden. Finger of foamy, firm ivory white head that settles down to a velvet sheen. O.K. lacing.

S: Fermenting green apples. Woodsy brandy. Graham cracker. Musk of grapes. Pear and vanilla. Pretty much like an apple orchard with a bunch of apples that have been on the ground quite some time.

M: Quite effervescent. Light-medium body. Quite chewy, and noticeable alcohol burn.

T: My mom never spiked her apple pie like this. I think the brandy overwhelms the more delicate apple flavor. Spice and alcohol dominate. Peppery, lemon citrus. Tart grape skin, and all sweetness derived from brandy. Soft malt base of grass. Subtle complexity. Sweeter, more mellow as it warms.

Pale golden pour with creamy white foam, smells of casked brandy. Not sure that it tastes like mom's apple pie like the label suggests but I wouldn't want it to either. Just the right amount of apple and brandy flavors mixed with sweet malts and a minor hop presence to impress upon the drinker that it's still beer. It's easy to get caught up in a high gravity beer like this because it's delicious and doesn't have that sharp boozy quality to keep you in check.
