On tap this beer pours a fairly clear dark amber color, with a smallish head, decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is fruity and yeasty, typical Belgian-style complexity; faintly sweet, spicy, lots of apple cider notes.

Delicious flavor is led by that distinct apple cider flavor, light sourness, moderate sweetness, restrained hops. Nice yeasty spiciness. Finishes dry.

Medium body and lively carbonation; feels alive and very smooth in the mouth. Short aftertaste with just a hint of booze along with diminishing sweet and tart apple flavor.

This beer is really nice on tap; it’s been a long while since I’ve had the bottle but I’ll buy one soon and see if I like as much as I enjoyed the draft version.

On tap poured into pint glass at Bombers in Schenectady, NY. Nice...they give you quite a pour for such a pricey brew...thank you!
Pours a brown ish amber cloudy haze. Little head, but really nice aroma of slight malts and belgian yeasts.
Great flavour...mild, but just enough Belgian flavor to not be overwhelmed. A very approachable BPA, especially for a casual beer drinker looking to expand on the usual; but also appeals to the finer side of beer...good brew.
