Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jaycase on 07-31-2014

We brewed this beer in collaboration with Bad Apple Bar to celebrate their 5 yr birthday celebration. It's a wheat pale brewed with green cardamom, black currants, and ginger. The result is a spicy and tart brew that pairs really well with food, or at least we think so. The label art is by PW friend Peter Wano.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #471/472 printed on the label. The latest creation from Pipeworks, this one a collaboration with The Bad Apple. An interesting premise "wheat pale ale brewed with ginger, cardamom, apples, and black currants'.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a murky orange-reddish-brown colored body. Less than a finger of reddish-tan colored head. Lots of scattered lacing. Very juicy looking, that's for sure. Looks very nice.

S - The smell is very fresh, juicy, and unique also. The cinnamon, ginger, and apples are all very apparent players. The black currant adds a sort of cranberry aroma to the mix.

T - Taste is very unique, fruity, juicy, and delicious. A perfect blend of juicy ginger, apples, and cinnamon spice. Again, the black currants give it a sort of berry / vinous taste. The apples are a big player here, but I'm not sure if "cidery" would be the right way to describe it.

M - The feel is crisp, smooth, & juicy. A mostly clean finish, lightly sticky.

Overall, another unique and original beer from Pipeworks; delicious as always, and exceptionally drinkable for the high abv. Highly recommended.
