Brewery Vivant Space Queen Immortal
What the brewers say
"Massive orange-citrus aroma gives way to notes of juicy peach and cantaloupe. Not aged with fruit, this beer is a study in the intersection of Lactobacillus and hops."
What our panel thought
"Huge resinous, almost grassy, hops aroma. The hops flavor is shackled to a rambunctious sourness, and neither one is at ease with the forced partnership."
What our editors thought
"A woodsy, earthy hops note and roasted peanuts on the nose girds the expected citrus hops, adding dimension, but the diminutive malt character does little to support the big fermentation and hops notes layered on top of it."
