This beer fills the nose with a rich apple pie aroma. Green apple, mace and nutmeg swirl in the air, giving away the beer’s addition of fresh apple juice. Tart apple and effervescent carbonation playfully unfold on the tongue: Apple notes cling to its sides as spritzy bubbles work over the cracker malt base in the middle. Along the way, hints of nutmeg and clove up the spice quotient, tempering the apple’s tart bite. In the end, pleasant alcohol leaves the chest warm as hints of sour apple hang on the back of the tongue.
