Brilliant golden / orange in color, this beer brewed with yerba mate’ pours with a good head that falls quickly. The aroma is big and citrus with a floral note and a touch of brown malt. The flavor has a matte bitterness up front with grapefruit hop flavors and ends with a smokey nutty finish. The bitterness is unique (from the mate’) and the flavors work well together to pull together as a satisfying and distinctive brew. The caffeine from the mate’ is just an extra added bonus.
