COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer you are holding is unique. A special strain of yeast and a warm fermentation produces a beer of exceptional flavor and aroma. An extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning ensures all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 50°F in a tulip glass.

What to expect
This tawny orange beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavor is a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. And in a second it is gone, finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.

Cellaring Information
Store upright in a dark dry place at cellar temperature (ideally at 50 degree). Cellar limit is 2 years.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Poured a muddled yellow-orange color with a moderate white head that faded to a ring. Aroma of pepper, passion fruit, and tangerine as advertised, paired with lemon, ginger, a lightly dusty yeastiness, and some faint earthy hops. Smooth, lightly dry entry lead into a moderate earthy yeastiness and hints of orange and lemon paired with a peppery spiciness that lingers into the moderately dry finish where some soft earthy hops peak through. Moderate carbonation and dry overall mouth feel. Overall, its not quite dry and earthy enough, there’s a tad too much fruit that make it seem more juicy.

Pours hazy, barely translucent golden yellow with a thick snow-white head. Sour citrus dominates the flavor while letting yeasty and butterscotch hrs peek through. Flavor is fruity and a little sour, with malty and yeasty underpinnings and a hint of lemon. Mouthfeel is fairly fizzy and form. Get your funk on!

Bottle thanks to arminjewell, shared at Anchorage tasting June ’15: Popped the top and this came alive, gushing carbonation. Poured hazy yellow with white head. Aroma was barnyard funk. Taste is funky, citrus fruit, and apple. This was bottled in Jul ’13, even though I enjoyed it might have spent a little to long in my cellar.
