A: Hazy golden. Finger of foamy, firm ivory white head that settles down to a velvet sheen. O.K. lacing.

S: Fermenting green apples. Woodsy brandy. Graham cracker. Musk of grapes. Pear and vanilla. Pretty much like an apple orchard with a bunch of apples that have been on the ground quite some time.

M: Quite effervescent. Light-medium body. Quite chewy, and noticeable alcohol burn.

T: My mom never spiked her apple pie like this. I think the brandy overwhelms the more delicate apple flavor. Spice and alcohol dominate. Peppery, lemon citrus. Tart grape skin, and all sweetness derived from brandy. Soft malt base of grass. Subtle complexity. Sweeter, more mellow as it warms.
