32 oz Growler from Spirits Unlimited

Appearance: A nice dark amber brown color, not too much head or lacing, but I think that might be due to the nature of the growler

Smell: Sweet with apples, plums, nice malts, and some yeast spice

Taste: Fruity, with apple being the forefront, some plum, raisins, and a beautiful yeast signature that I can't quite describe

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, low (but appropriate) carbonation

Overall: I think the only thing lost to the growler was some head. It still had appropriate carbonation for drinkability, though I wouldn't want to save this growler for a second day. First taste brought back memories of the first time I tried Ommegang's Abbey Ale. This is fantastic, and I personally think Kane has a bright future ahead if they can pull off stuff like this regularly. This brew just solidified my decision to make 2014 the year of the local brewery.

Kane Brewing kicks butt! I love these guys, Solitude is such an awesome brew. Ok on too Malus. This Apple Cider monster clocks in at 9.50% and the ABV is well hidden. The beer pours a really foamy head which took a while to calm down. The aroma was cider up front, a very subtle tart followed by super ripe sweetness with some brown sugar. I could drink a lot of this. Ice cold this beer rocks! so when drinking it make sure it's cold. Not as good if it warms. I would buy this again, it's like Positive Contact...it's good.

Bottom Line: I love Kane Brewing! Malus is a good brew!

big thanks to Ed5388 for this one. poured cold and fast to a 14oz snifter a nice candied copper to brown with a finger and a half bubbly, long lasting tan head.

aroma of tart apples, cloves and a hint of overripe banana.

medium bodied, huge carbonation, nearly champagne style bubbles all over the palate as soon as the sip passes the lips.

cider way up front, a very subtle tart followed by super overripe sweetness, brown sugar, hints of spices.

the abv is hidden well, a nice sipper.
