COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
#4 of 12, Crafted with malted barley, orange blossom honey, Citra hops, Tasmanian pepper berries, and Bhudda’s hand zest. 8% ABV, label design by Lael Har.

For the Artisan Ale Project, Twisted Pine developed twelve distinct new beers and then enlisted the help of a dozen talented Colorado artists for artwork to adorn the labels. On the first Saturday of every month in 2012, the brewery will introduce a small batch of one of the ales at a special release-party which will double as an art show for that month’s featured artist. The Artisan ales will come in sleek, black 750ml glass bottles and will mark the brewery’s first foray into that size packaging. Quantities will be limited, especially for the barrel-aged beers in the series. Distribution of the bottles will be restricted to Colorado accounts and the Twisted Pine ale house will have each new beer on tap for as long as supplies last. Twisted Pine is proud to be part of a very artistic community in Colorado and excited to release a product that supports and celebrates the arts and the art of crafting a fine beer.

Bottle poured a hazy deep golden hue w/ large rocky white head. Moderate sweet fruit and honey aroma. Initial flavor is faint sweet w/ a moderate tart finish. Tastes are lemon citrus, honey, some barnyard funk and tangerine. Medium bodied, lively carbonation and a light warmth in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle at the Colorado Mead Tasting ’12, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks Man! Pour is hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Floral hops, honey comb, medicinal, herbal, lemon peel, citrus, and clove in the aroma. Tate is herbal, band-aid, lemon peel, white peeper, yeasty, and biscuit with a spicy finish. Light mouthfeel with high carbonation. Very belgian-esque and pretty tasty.

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Colorado mead tasting 2012 - hazy gold - a rather fizzy pour - nose of orange zest, wildflowers, a bit of pepper - flavor is medium dry and very floral - spicy and peppery through the middle - moderately bitter and lightly acidic in the finish, with lingering peppery spice - maybe a little too bitter, but this is a nice beer - should probably be listed as a Belgian strong ale, though.

2012 Colorado Mead Tasting at Armin’s house. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a bubbly, white head. Zesty lemon, citrusy, a bit tropical fruity, light honey, bubbly carbonated aroma. Somewhat floral, grassy, zesty lemon, fruity, refreshing flavor. Not bad.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Poured into a snifter. Limited release #4 of 12. 3.0 A: Moderately hazed dark yellow color. Three fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a bit below average and little lacing is left. 3.5 S: Big honey from the start, like it should be. Huge herbalness including chamomile and dandelion. Earthy and peppery spiciness. Neutral, lightly grainy maltiness. Pleasant nose. 3.5 T: Lots of honey, but I still want some more. Again spicy pepper, herbal tea variety of herbalness, and dirty earth. Clean, grainy malts. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a light spritziness to it. Smooth. 3.5 D: I’m a big fan of braggots, and while it isn’t bad, it’s not super complex or super potent. I prefer braggots to have an unholy amount of honey. Still, definitely worth a buy since there is a paucity of braggots on the market and this one is tasty. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-29-2012 04:02:45

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy orange color with a huge white head. A nice honey and floral aroma with a fairly herbal and spicy aroma. Some pepper notes, a bit of yeast, and a mild citrus hop aroma. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but also a bit tart and citrusy on the finish. Some pepper, mild herbs, and lemon. Kind of has a tea character to the flavor.
