Poured from bottle to tulip the beer arrives a brilliant golden color, fairly opaque in nature, with a decent 1.5 finger white head, good retention and lacing. Fairly translucent. The nose is an aggressive blend of peppery lemon, yeast, and herbs. Similarly the flavor is a punch of lemony pepper, yeast and then an abundance of sage, allspice, rosemary spice. Different, aggressive but not overly so. Mildy bitter and fairly clean. Not much hop character. Finishes a bit thin in nature with a lingering herb flavor. Overall, glad to have tried it. Might go well with a rosemary lemon pepper chicken? I enjoyed it but likely won't be back.
