Rich golden color with excellent clarity. There's an inch of tightly knit bright white foam and some light Brussels lacing. I get a lot of spices within the aroma but I think the cilantro and cider stand out the most. The flavor is powerfully spiced and you really get the cilantro which is a bit refreshing and gives it a vegetal edge. The cider gives a light sweetness. The cayenne gives a slight warmth and and the cider offers some dryness in the mouth.

This pours with a radiant wheat yellow color and a thick foamy head.
The nose is a bit wheat, a little bit of Apple cider, with a spicy tone of chili powder and paprika.
The flavor is strong on the front palate with Apple sweetness. The middle shows substantial wheat grain and I got caramel malts. The spicy cayenne is more a spicy nutmeg or cinnamon and it reminds of some Christmas beers. The great thing is that the complexities of this beer seem to change with each sip.
The feel is light and crisp and disguises the higher ABV.
I enjoyed this beer immensely, it's complex, it's different and it kept me guessing.
Serving type: on-tap
