A: 4.5 Opened carefully without much drama. Pours reddish-gold and slightly hazy with a large white head.

S: 4.5 Lots of pepper on the nose. Wheat, funk, lemon, and oak come through next. The lemon and peppery aromas go really well together; their brightness is also balanced out by some mineral characteristics and richness from the oak.

T: 4.5 Like the nose, there is a lot of lemon, but orange and even some grapefruit flavors come through on the palate. The pepper is a bit more subdued while adding a different kind of brightness to this already bright (i.e., sour) beer. A touch of sweetness and oak sneak in under the sour flavors.

M: 4.25 Carbonation is great and the dry finish is also excellent. There’s a bit of a watery characteristic to this beer; a slightly more substantial feel would help in this regard.

O: 4.5 This is such a bright, flavorful beer with a lot going on. It’s actually quite exciting drinking this as it seems like each sip brings a new flavor. The age from the older beer in the blend also really comes through, tasting old and funky in the best possible way.
