Captain Lawrence Golden Delicious

As part of a trade with Tim Dean from New York, I received a bottle of Captain Lawrence Golden Delicious, a beer very similar to my wedding beer. The beer pours a golden color with a lofty and frothy white colored head that almost leaps out of the glass. The aroma consists of banana, grass, apple, alcohol, and brandy. The taste is bold with lots of apple brandy on the front end that really attacks the mouth. The background flavors are from the triple and consist of banana and grass, with some apple accents. A dry and alcohol fueled finish dries the mouth with some oak accents and a light pepper spice. The alcohol content is 12.0% ABV. This triple is entirely infused with apple brandy flavor, and it was more than enjoyable on the palate. It was spicy and boozy, but had a very solid backbone as well.
