What the brewers say

“This tawny, orange-hued beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas are of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper. Flavors are a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger, and pepper before finishing with a dry, lingering bitterness that awaits another sip. Serve at 50°F in a tulip glass.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Good lemon profile with malt sweetness. Odd, grassy, lemon zest American hop. Interesting earthy floral in the nose. Crushed pepper. Fruity sweet esters.”

Flavor: “Well balanced. Sweet lemon character and light malt sweetness. Pronounced saison yeast character with unique hops that work well but are a departure from the norm. Good, lovely hop complexity with medium bitterness. Crisp, nice carbonation delivers flavors well. Slight carbonic twang.”

Overall: “Exceedingly refreshing, balanced, and drinkable. Good complexity of both hop and malt with mild spice and slight sweetness. I liked this and could drink a lot of it.”
