Poured into taster (4 oz) at Belmont Station:

Some light head that quickly vanished leaving little lace. Clear golden hue. Smells lightly of a saison with some hints of apple.

On the palate I pick up more golden delicious apple than any sour apple. Kind of a let down... Pretty simple. Light body, medium grip, alcohol kept in check though. Medium length finish.

Overall pretty simple yet decent saison with the added apple.

Reading the label on a beer is always something thats a lot of fun for me. I learned, for example, that the beer I'm holding is only one of 1800 bottles. And the label also indicated which batch it is (I'm drinking release #5) and the ABV (8.1) I'm pretty keen on all that.

So this is a beer that pretty much describes exactly what it is. It's a Belgium ale that is brewed with apples.

It's got quite a bit of apple to the nose, though on the tongue, the apple doesn't hit until after the swallow.

Definitely made with Belgium yeast. All the tell tale signs are there, including a bit of cloudiness to the eye.

It's drinkable, but not one that I'd pursue.
