Color was a golden amber, almost like a apple juice. A few small streams of carbonation rose from the bottom. The head was a 1 finger fluffy white that only last 2 or 3 minutes. Initially poured similar to a sparkling apple cider. Aroma was like a sweet apple cider. Not as sweet as a juice, but the apples were definitely noticeable. A small bit of banana in the back as well. Flavor was sweet, but still a bit dry. A little bit of peppery yeast as well. Coated nicely. Not overly stickey or chewy. Not as much carbonation as I would expect on the style notes. Overall a unique beer. Not necessarily true to style notes, but well balanced with a very unique flavor.

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
