What the brewers say

N/A

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Ginger, lemon, peppercorn, slight sulfur, faint grassy hops, and fairly strong phenolic fermentation quality that reminds me of a hippy campfire.”

Flavor: “Complex spice notes of ginger and Szechuan peppercorn. Pithy, astringent finish but not necessarily off putting. Some orange and strawberry on the retronasal along with lemongrass. There’s sharpish tartness that gives this one an edge, but the aftertaste is too spicy.”

Overall: “This is a fun farmhouse ale with plenty of Brett and some lemon and what tastes like ginger to round things out. Maybe a bit heavy on the spice, but a nice beer overall. The spice character lingers and lingers deep into the aftertaste, reminding you of what you just drank.”
