Hop Butcher Weirdsmobile

What the brewers say

“Nelson Sauvin and Vic Secret–hopped saison-style ale with citrus pulp and dank tropical notes.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Calling all hopheads! Hops aroma is forefront with a lot of cantaloupe, mango, peach, pineapple, lemongrass, and herbal. Orange and tangerine come through after the initial hops. Behind that there’s some bready malt and a bit of black pepper.”

Flavor: “Dankness, passion fruit, pine, pithy orange, and lemon peel, touch of peppery phenolics. High bitterness is compounded by the expected bone-dry finish. Balance is all about the IBUs in this one. Some saison character is hiding under massive hops burst.”

Overall: “Super-inviting dank and fruity nose leads to a mouth-puckering bitterness. While hops aroma blends nicely with the more subtle yeast character, some may find the bitterness a bit much for such a light beer.”
