Caliente hops and Belgian yeast create a fruit filled bubblegum sensation, that’s enhanced further by the addition of tart rhubarb. The finish turns abruptly toward an intense spicy bitterness that smacks the palate leaving a lasting dryness.

Almost too dry—smacking lips bitter/dry on the finish. As an experiment it was fun to try but I don’t see myself committing to this one again. Now rhubarb strawberry short cake …
