Contentious is making its 4th appearance on our draft lineup. With hints of orange citrus and peppery spiciness from the Belgian yeast, youíll enjoy this well through the winter.

[Tap] Light orange pour with a lot of haze to it. Dense foam head lasts quite some time. Yeasty aromas mix with resinous hops. Flavors of citrus zest, herbal hops, sweet yeasty esters, grains and pine sap. Rather dry. Medium bodied. Highly carbonated. Tasting notes from Nevinís - Evanston in 9/2014.

Draft on tap at the brewery (Plainfield, IL). Pours a pale yellow gold hue, decent haziness with a touch of golden orange orange glow. Frothy whitish head is soapy, mellow but full layer atop stays as a pleasant film, nice lacing. Aromas are touches of florals, lemon rind and earth. A bit bready, gentle grainy sweetness. A touch of yeast and Belgian fruit elements, touches of orange, apple and fruity elements. Initial is lighter end of the fold, prickly Belgian yeast is dry, a bit spicy with mellow bready malts, bitter earth and touches of floral, gentle citrus. Mellow fruit, a bit estery with some sun tan lotion. Middle is a bit bready, dry and grainy malts meet some earthy and floral bitterness, touches of lemon, green leafy earth. Backend is grainy, a bit dry and bitter. He hop element and yeast element fall off from the front end. Lighter, a bit cereal in the backend with earthy and floral bitterness, gentle jabs of fruit. The finish is gentle fruit, touches of earth and mellow kiss of melon, citrus. Solid, light and pretty easy to put back. Not over yeasty or spicy but also a bit restrained in hop element. Still the sweetness and fruit eleements are lighter and pretty crushable. Not bad
