Alcohol by volume: 8%
Appearance: The beer is a
cloudy brown color with orange highlights when held to the light. On
top sits a thick white, frothy foam head like that clings to the
side of the glass and is slow to dissolve.
Aroma: A very spicy aroma is
present above the glass. Coriander, cinnamon and apples are most
noticeable and the smell reminds me of an apple pie.
Taste: This medium to full
bodied beer is very smooth and should be sipped. Apple flavors are
the first thing you notice on each taste. Soon coriander and other
spices take over the flavor and a bitter taste with a carbonation
tingle jumps in at the end. A spicy alcohol flavor remains in the
mouth after every sip.
Summary: This beer has a
nice balance between the fruity and spicy flavors. The flavor
reminds me of a dark belgian beer. It is bottled fermented and can
be aged in a cellar for up to 5 years. I did find it to be
rather filling, so would not want more than one glass of this beer
at a sitting.
