Dogfish Head Positive Contact ....

Today I will try a Positive Contact from Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales.  It is brewed with Fuji cider, farro, cayenne peppers and cilantro.  9% ABV is listed on the 1 pint, 9.4 ounce bottle.  The web site shows 26 IBUs.

This beer poured with a medium to thicker head that was bone colored.  Beer color is a medium to darker golden yellow.  The aroma is wheat, yeast, lemon and spice.  The taste is more of the same, with the pepper coming through a little stronger (the cayenne?).  Maybe a little banana.  Medium in strength.  The higher alcohol is noticeable and it kind of warms going down.  Dry finish.  Leaves you with a slightly dry, yeasty aftertaste.  This beer has the yeasty/wheaty features of a Belgian wit, with high alcohol and a real peppery quality.
