What the brewers say

“This straw-colored ale takes three months to create, using a process involving three different yeast strains added at specific times, temperatures, and gravities. Green peppercorns are added alongside whole-cone European hops to give an earthy bite.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate peppery phenols up front with a light lemon note in the back. As it warms, more lime notes come out. Orange and white grape esters. Slight apple and green-grape skin.”

Flavor: “High tangerine and orange note up front with a mild sweetness and medium tartness that lingers into the aftertaste with a heavy fruity note and just a touch of spiciness. Carbonation is moderate for the style. As it warms, the earthy hops flavor pushes forward. Low bitterness in the finish. The bright acidity and light pepper note cut through the sweetness of the malt bill.”

Overall: “Very fruity and juicy with big notes of orange, grapefruit, and tangerine. Tart character and dry finish make this very drinkable. The fruitiness paired with the light pepper notes on top of the malt bill create this fantastic balanced beer.”
