Pours a golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, apples and wheat.
More apples and sweet honey on the tongue with a touch of spice (I'm not able to pick out the cayenne and cilantro immediately), a big bready biscuit character and a slightly cloying finish. Reminds me of a lot of tripels I've had. Very warm in the finish, where the cayenne begins to come through. I think I can pick up the cilantro in the aftertaste, but I might just be talking myself into it. As I drink more, the distinct apple character fades a bit and I'm left with a solid, tripel-like beer.
Really interesting, really enjoyable.

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
