New England Brewing Co.
5.5% Belgo Rye & Pepper Pale Ale. “RYPPER” is this year’s yeast starter for Big Holiday and is a complex Belgian Pale that combines some classic ingredients. The beer pours a copper colour with a light tan head. There are soft Belgian characters that mesh with the citrusy, spicy character of the hops and an underlying earthiness. The body is hoppy with a blend of fruits before black pepper and rye kick in for some extra complexity. The beer has medium bitterness and some lingering pepper heat.
