A true porch pounder! Formulated to the tastes of brewery employees wanting a crushable daytime drink, the nose boasts hints of juniper and cucumber that any gin drinker will love. Further notes of melon, banana, and pear are highlighted by a pleasant acidity. Despite its easy drinking nature, there is still great depth and complexity here - try it alongside spicy grilled shrimp or a roasted beet grain bowl.
