On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead – Haledon, soft-toned summertime refresher brings misty lemon ‘n lime juicing to the fore of citric-spritzed light body with unexpected (and well hidden) 9.3% alcohol whir. Mild vodka briskness spikes grapefruit, orange and berry subtleties underlying spritzy grassy-hopped lemon liming.

On tap at River Of Beer, cask-conditioned version steeped in bourbon chips maintains soft flow for delicate pumpkin pie spicing, toned-down molasses waver and dainty vanilla wisp.

Prevalent yellow grapefruit tang settles down and picks up bitter dry-hopped lemon seed aspect above white bread bottom. Sharp citrus affluence increased in the midst by caramelized pilsner malting as tertiary pineapple, mango, tangerine and mango surface alongside zesty grapefruit juicing.
