This is one of the most unique beers I have ever tasted in my life.

Pours a beautiful golden color, with a medium amount of carbonation.

The smell is incredibly earthy... like literally almost smelling earth.

The taste? This is the earthiest and most unique flavor I have ever had out of a beer. It's got the earthiness and grassiness of a green pepper, but in the best way possible. This beer is definitely an acquired taste and not for everyone, but I appreciated what they did. Very unique. Pairs very well with BBQ.
