look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Slightly clouded golden pour with a stark white bubbly head. Fades fairly quickly but good lacing.

S: A lot like a witbier. Coriander, lemon and orange for sure. Not sure I can smell the peppercorns but there is a tingling in my nose to let me know that it's there.

T: Wheaty up front. Can definitely taste the pepper here. Nice! As mentioned, the coriander lemon and orange are noticeable as well. Pepper grows even more noticeable in the aftertaste. Very unique flavor. Not really sure how to describe it but surprisingly tasty. Almost a little...salty? in the aftertaste too. Herbal quality shows up in the aftertaste as the beer warms as well.

M: A bit tingly from all the nice spices but otherwise smooth and refreshing.

O: Underrated beer, in my opinion. It's not some amazing RIS or anything but it is very unique and I like all aspects of it.
