thanks to MyIronLung for this one.

750ml into a duvel tulip

A - opaque golden yellow/orange body with a pure white frothy head two to three fingers deep. superb retention.

S - sour apples, oak, earthy malts, peach.

T - sugary sweetness sour apple cherry peach earthy malts. some lemon zest in there as well.

M - light to medium bodied with tons of carbonation. great tartness from this brew. strong but not overbearing.

O - a superb brew. maybe a little bit more laid back than i prefer for this style but still very very good.
