Perennial Artisan Ales Elliot
What the brewers say
Dry, with a clean lactic bite. It finishes with complex Brett and light oxidation that we find beautiful in beers like this.
What our panel thought
Lemony-herbal aroma—Italian seasoning, shortbread cookies, peaches, cranberries, graham crackers. Citric-tart and herbal flavor with light leathery funk and balanced bitterness. Subtle, complex, surprising. I want to use it as a marinade. Tasty.
What our editors thought
Distinct herbal note on the nose suggests thyme, Thai basil, lime leaf. Flavor is a compelling sweet-sour take; a rounded sweet and warming note softens the citric edge while reining in bright bitterness. Lingering herbal notes offer depth.
