look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into Lindemans flute. Neck tag recommends 40-42F and a best before July 2012. $20 at a beer store.

Appearance - Hazy apple juice body. Frothy white head with decent if patchy stick.

Smell - Apple. Sweetish. Faint soy sauce. Slightly musky and spicy.

Taste - Dry apple. Sour. Tart. Very alcoholic, somewhat acidic finish and aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Very warming and boozy. Medium-light bodied. Very frothy, carbonated, and spritey. Rounds out as it warms.

Overall Drinkability - Sum is better than the parts. Very enjoyable.

A huge thanks to my friend Schmittymack for kindly sharing this one with me last Friday night. Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aromas of earthy hops, grain and breadiness. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, nicely tart, with flavors of earthy hops, straw and bread. Much better than I anticipated; I would buy this one in regular Sam Adams six packs.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass

A - Beer poured with a copper hue (brown); one finger white foam formed; foam dissipated pretty quickly; the body of the beer remained clear from start to finish

S - Scent of high ABV, spice (coriander) come up with hints of malts and hops; crisp clean smell; sweet aroma of fruits on back-end shared with liquor tones; the beer has a malt liquor smell

T - Not too much taste on the front of the tongue; soft spiced beer in the middle with a malty/bourbon high ABV finish on the back of the tongue; nice mixture of highly complex ingredients

M - bubbly like a champagne wine; accompanied by a slight creamy mouthfeel' smooth down the hatch

D - This beer was definitely worth the two-year wait; I enjoyed every sip of this one; a celebratory beer, should be shared on special occasions and best served during the holidays; SA and Weihenstephan should collaborate again to make another brew
