Nose
Initial strong burst of hops, with an aniseed-like spiciness. Firm malt behind. Tart pineapple and tangerine fruitiness.
Palate
Malty smooth and laced with tart orange and other citrus fruits. Piney hop notes. Notable acidity.
Finish
Rapidly drying. Bitter and hoppy, with a woody essence and a suggestion of sourness.
Comment
A bit of a wild child. A bone dry amber beer partially fermented with a yeast that creates an acidic sourness. Totally refreshing and complex.
