This really has aged out to be palatable. It still isn't good but it is drinkable. Only hints of green apple now. The body is only a tad too thin. There are some interesting Belgian pale notes.

22oz bottle split with Tim.

Pours light copper with a orangy hue. Minimal head and barely a trace of dotted lacing. Apples, bubblegum, vanilla, and booze in the nose. Hints of oak and wet paper. Medium bodied at best. The mouthfeel is limp due to light-ish carbonation. Candied fruit and oaky fusels on the palate. Shades of cotton candy, green apples, and lollipop wrapper.
Finishes with fading fruit and warming alcohol.

I had this on tap at the brewpub and it was such a sweet boozer at the time, I waited on this bottle to mellow. It's past prime at this time though. Minor oxidation and muted character.

I usually don't do reviews, honestly this is my first for this site but I feel like this beer deserves a higher rating than what it has. When this beer was fresh it was oaky as all hell which is why I think most people did not care for it. A little over a year and a half later and this beer has taken a turn for the better, glad I put a few bottles down. The smell is still caramel apples and the taste follows suite but it has this almost tart taste/smell that has developed that actually works well.
