COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Atleast brewed in Walnut Creek, by the Berkeley Brew Team on March 27th 2009 - no information on other brews. 2 Row Pilsen and Wheat malt, Mt Hood and Saaz hops. OG 12.8 Plato, FG 4.15 Plato. 32 IBU’s.

This interesting and unique interpretation of Farmhouse Ale has the ussual characteristics found in the style; slightly elevated carbonation, a creamy soft texture, citric sourness, and noticeable spicy notes. We have added white peppercorn during fermentation which imparts an enjoyable dose of pepper sensations in both nose and mouthfeel. Yes, this is a cold beer with a distinct heat in the finish - meant to be enjoyed during the long days of summer.

Draft. A hazy light golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of pepper and other spices as well as lighter notes of yeast and lemon. The flavor is sweet malty and rather spicy - pepper being most dominant, but also with a light note of yeast, leading to a dry, spicy, and citrusy finish.

5 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Community Beerfest. Aroma is musty, spicy, lightly peppery with some yeast esters that give this some barnyard character. A little lemon sweetness is also present. Moderately hazy straw color with a scant white head present. Spicy, metallic, peppery start. SOme yeast estery notes present themselves in the middle. A little thin-bodied. Some lemon citrus peppery notes to finish. Decent.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 5, 2010
On tap at the Davis Beerfest 2010. Pours cloudy yellow with a decent white head and a faint floral aroma. There is a light malt flavor with some banana ester and a carbonated mouthfeel. The finish is slightly bitter, perhaps from the peppercorn.
