Nice pour at this year's FunkFest at Bittercreek. Pours a slightly hazed dark amber brew.. Light khaki head with no real retention or lacing. Nose is sharp acid with oak and the whiskey only barely delivers the apple promise. Definitely shows the bones of La Folie... burning acidity, but not unpleasant.. With warmth a lot more fruity complexity arises (underripe plum, tart cherries) but so does the acidity... Well done, but 10oz was plenty until the next time I see this rarity.
