Draft… Cloudy caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head that refuses to diminish. The aromatic highlights are spicy farmhouse yeast, citrus peel and a hint of rye. Medium-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. The flavor boasts farmhouse-style spicy phenols - clove, fruity esters - banana, and sweet barley and rye malts. There’s a subtle, spicy rye component in the semi-sweet finish as well.
Beautiful color. Coppery orange. Off-white head. Spicy aroma. Smooth rye taste with a hint of banana. Effervescent carbonation. Great first beer for the night.
