3.5/5  rDev -7.7%

11.2 oz bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a reddish brown with a huge white-ish head. Wasn't expecting all this carbonation or foam.

Aroma: Smells of toffee, booze, some dark fruit and toast.

Taste: The taste follows the nose. Maltier than I expected. Not particularly sour or tart. Pretty boozy.

Mouthfeel: Medium depth of body. Pretty well balanced.

Overall: I expected to be wowed by this, but it's pretty decent as opposed to transcendent. I'm not super familiar with the style, but this seems like a workmanlike example of it.

S: spicy, apple

A: deep orange color with finger hear that quickly dissolves

T: spicy, hay, fruity, some oak notes with mild bitterness

O:though it is a little on the sweet side the bier has a nice medium body for a farmhouse style ale. leaves a nice spice/bitterness on finish.
