DRAFT REVIEW: Saison du Pelican
This beer’s aroma pleasantly contrasts edgy pepper and herbal scents with bright, juicy orange wafts. Black pepper takes the lead on the tongue and sharpens the beer’s slight tartness; the spice weaves through the cracker malt base. Orange peel adds a fruity, slightly bitter touch to the profile, while classic rustic hay and earthiness emerge in the back. Bubbly carbonation rushes the swallow to a pleasant dry finish that leaves behind orange peel on the tongue and a surprising touch of warmth in the chest.
