Dark hazy amber with an asymmetrical off-white blanket.

I smell graham, toasted bread, and roasted apples.

Taste is bready, slightly spiced apple. A small, sweet heat runs along as an unidentifiable booze, sort of anise-like and bitter.

A graying copper color, minimal head. The nose is full of booze, apple and vanilla. The flavor is more restrained. Wood and apples mingle with the base beer yeasts of bubblegum and sugar. The feel is a bit thin and the alcohol too forward, but definitely one I was glad to try.

750ml bottle.

Opaque gold with much sediment. Huge head (a gusher). Dominant aroma is apple and suggests tartness. Tart apple and wood up front, with some mellow sugary notes on the finish. Thick with bright carbonation. Quite nice.

Nice pale golden color with lots of carbonation and a good ehite head. Some funky smell kinda like wild yeast. The taste, WOW! There's a nice apple taste, a mild bitterness too. Really fruity and not boozy at all fro a 10% beer.
