4.35/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap poured into a sampling glass at EBF 2012.

Pours a light brown unassuming color with a small light brown head. Nose is cinnamon sugar, apples, it's got a ton of these apple pie notes, almost as good as the PB&J beer but not quite as instantly identifiable.

Taste is like liquid pie, lots of those apple pie spices, and somehow flakey crust as well. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Overall its done a good job at being unique and I love it.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Thanks to HoppyLuckyGoGo for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

Pours a murky dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spice, and apple aromas. Taste is much the same with apple pie and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that has qualities much like apple pie.

Serving type: growler
