Hazy deep amber color. Green, herbal, dank aromas and flavors of freshly twisted citrus peels, pine forest floor, and caramel herb scone with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, interesting, medium-long finish with notes of toasted pretzel bread, rapini, and pepper finish. A solid wet-hop beer for requisite dankness and persistent astringency.

This category is, practically speaking, a catchall for beers that don’t fit neatly in an existing category. Specialty beers may be flavored with, or affected by, unusual ingredients (ginger, chipotle peppers) or fermentation agents (Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus), or brewed with unusual fermentables (buckwheat, sweet potatoes, maple syrup). This category also features the growing number of ultra-high gravity “extreme” beers that push the limits of alcohol. In addition, the base beer may be related to almost any classic beer style. Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by a pleasing combination of the beer’s elements, and overall drinkability.
