On tap at Taphouse Grille

Kind of hard to see through in a dim lit bar so can't tell the color too much. White head that forms a ring around the glass.

Wheat, floral and apples are the main aroma. They put in Apple Cider from local sources, which is from NJ. So the apples make a nice presence.

Wheat, caramel, apples, cloves, dark fruits and Belgian yeast are all in the mix. A slight dry acidic taste as the end.

Medium body, light carbonation, dry feel. Easy to drink, no alcohol heat with a 9.5%

Overall, not a bad strong ale from the new NJ brewers. I woudnt mind trying this again. To me, the apples were a little more noticeable in the aroma than the taste. The dry and slight acidic taste definitely is from the apple cider.

A: The beer is hazy dark brown in color. It poured with a finger and a half high dark beige head with some darker yeast particles on the bubbles. This quickly died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of dark fruits and apples in the nose along with some hints of cinnamon.
T: Similar to the taste, the smell has flavors of dark fruits and apples along with some notes of Belgian yeast. There are also lingering hints of spices in the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: It seems that this beer could use a heavier body to accentuate the interesting mix of flavors in the taste.

Bottle purchased Black Friday at brewery. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: Aggressive pour leads to big, foamy head with good retention and lacing. Beer is a very pretty ruby red.

S: Solid malts up front, cinnamon and apples faint but there.

T: Malt forward, some apple, a little bit of spice. Slight bitterness.

F: Quite drinkable, you don't easily notice the ABV at all. Decently balanced, lightly carbonated, medium-bodied.
