What the brewers say

“Brewed from sorghum and rice. Aroma is light and fruity. Flavor is crisp and re- freshing, yet fruity and smooth. Hints of green apple slice through the maltiness of the sorghum.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Candy notes, almost a hint of bubble gum and lots of fruit, mostly pear and apple with some grassy sweetness. A sorghum-like doughy flavor, very subtle sulfur note, along with a spicy Noble hops character.”

Flavor: “Bubble gum, sweet candy, cherry, pear, and apple. A strong fruity flavor with notes of citrus and melon. Hops flavor is subtle. High carbonation and dry finish. The graininess is lightly sweet and followed by an out-of-balance biting hops bitterness that has a hint of spiciness.”

Overall: “Very fruity cider character with green-apple notes. This tastes more of a cider than a beer and not like a pilsner. Bitterness is unbalanced. The fruitiness from the grain and the subtle hops spiciness makes this interesting, just a bit too fruity for my tastes, especially for a pilsner.”
