Beavertown Applelation (8.7%)

ApplelationI love Beavertown.
I love the people there and I love their beer, but once upon a time they made a beer that I absolutely hated.
It was their Kvass.
And now they’ve made another one, though I wanted to like it very much indeed.
Applelation is a “Bramley Apple Saison” and it starts out alright, but by the second or third swig it becomes very difficult to drink.
What begins as a crisp and fruity Saison with lots of earthy spiciness from the yeast and toffee apple malts that are sticky and gooey, quickly becomes a sickly and cloying boozy alcohol beast that leaves a nasty, almost vomit like, finish that made me pour most of it down the sink.
Well, you can’t win them all.

    I’m glad I didn’t bother with this in the Euston Tap on Tuesday, although I’m curious and would probably order it if there wasn’t something else that took my fancy (they had Skull King on at the time, which I’ve never tried, so it was no contest really).
