22 ounce bottle, batch #723, into a tulip glass.

Lots of new smells and tastes, not sure I can identity and describe many of them. Pours a dark, purplish, blue, medium head with some pretty cool blue foam, some clinging. Smells smoky, lots of vanilla, some cream soda. Maybe a hint of burning rubber, which I think in reality is a combo of herbals and florals that I have no idea of what they are. Taste follows the nose with a smoky feel and a good amount of vanilla, purple grapes, a little sweetness from the honey, some hop bitterness midway and late. Also the general herbals/florals. It's really good. Smooth, creamy, nice level of carbonation.

Okay, I can't describe it very well, but I do like it a whole lot. Very enjoyable to drink. Can't think of another beer this unique. Just another huge effort from Pipeworks. Would definitely buy again. Wonder what spirit this would be best barrel aged in?

22 oz. bottle, Batch #723. A unique creation of a beer if there ever was one from the mad scientists at Pipeworks. Pipeworks with Moto collaborate to bring us Let Me Show You Something, an "Ale brewed with Butterfly pea shoots, vanilla bean evaporated, honey wild flower, lemon juice, mandarina hops, & equinox hops". Sounds absolutely unique and delicious. 9.00% abv listed on the bottle.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Absolutely unique, crazy, and beautiful. The beer pours a bright purple color, appears purple in the glass, and conjures a thin layer of purple tinted bubbles. I'm giving it the 5 for being awesome.

S - Again, a unique, juicy, and mouth-watering aroma. Juicy lemon citrus, soft fresh florals, and delicate smooth vanilla bean. Smells pretty damn amazing, if you ask me.

T - The taste is like the aroma: a crazy amalgamation of flavor. Lots of fresh smooth creamy vanilla bean, fresh squeezed lemon citrus, and lots of earthy floral sweetness from the honey and hops. Very delicious, and extremely unique.

M - The feel is smooth & creamy, with lots of lingering vanilla bean. Extremely easy-drinking stuff for the high 9.00% abv.

Overall, an awesome unique creation from Pipeworks. Would love to see more beers like this. Highly recommended. Also, definitely not an American Wild Ale as listed here; I'm not sure what this would be classified as, to be honest.

Pipeworks Let Me Show You Something -----4/5.

A (very) weird beer courtesy of Pipeworks in celebration of the life of Chicago's Chef Homaro Cantu, who (sadly) decided an early check out on life was the right decision.
Purple drank in appearance and hits with an abiding vanilla nose, which is followed in the palate by a slight kiss of more vanilla in the palate and followed by lemon and honey which is backed up by the hops serving up a slight bitterness and more juice. Truly a unique beer that might (or might not) become something to be reckoned with some age on it.

It pours a very dark purple/blue color.
it has a totally unique taste, I can't think of any other beer to compare the taste to.
it is only lightly tart, but it has a multitude of taste undertones
