Billed as an American Trippel with VanderMill Cider. This is a rare misstep from a very fine brewer. It starts our just like a trippel but very quickly the VerderMill Cider takes over. An extreme sour note on the finish lingers. Trippels is expected to have soft subtle flavor notes so it's strange that they would try to flavor it with sour cider. It might have worked if they used a sweeter cider and less of it.

What is most frustrating is that they know this is bad yet they serve on there premium list. When these small brewers make a bad batch they need to have the stones to pour it out move on.

Still am a big fan of Greenbush but they lost some cred with this one.

If you are looking for something on the C list go for the 1825. Honestly one of the best beers being produced anywhere at this time.
