Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet Belgian malt with light apple brandy notes. Taste is a very drinkable mix of Belgian malt with light residual candi sugar notes and some light Brandy notes also noticeable. Body is full with good carbonation. I quite enjoyed that one with loads of nice drinkability notes and the Brandy notes rounding off some of rough edges.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass and shared with friends
Thanks to Chad for the bottle!

Pours a hazy, golden color with a short white head and touch of lacing. The nose has that Belgian yeast character, sweet malt, apples, with a subtle woody oak. The yeast comes through on the palate as well along with lots of alcohol from the apple brandy. It is a bit to sweet and boozy for me which masks some of the other characteristics of the beer.
