4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Tangerines, black pepper, citrus.
A- Orange color, super cloudy liquid, large white frothy head.
T- Tangerines, black pepper, lemon zest, balanced.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, smooth fruity finish.
O- What an outstanding beer. The description says it all. The palate starts out with a pepper kick and immediately dissipates and turns into a tangerine fruity finish with just a subtle bitterness. There isn’t much to dislike about this beer. It is all it says it is and more. The pepper and fruit notes work together very well and make for an exceptionally complex beer.
