In this beer blog, 21st Amendment Brewing Sneak Attack is the feature beer in this post. I have blogged about this brewery a few times in the past. If you have not read those beer post, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read those beer post to get an idea of this great brewery. Let us get into the beer.
The color of the beer is yellow without head on it l. The smell is a lemon peppermint to the beer. The taste is a heavy lemon with a hop finish. It is pretty drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.21st-amendment.com):
You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didn’t expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. We’re sneaking up on winter with a boatload of bravado and this Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Dry hopped with whole organic cardamom pods, our Saison has an assertive spiciness. In your face, winter.
Sneak Attack is our late winter seasonal beer available from January through March in six-pack cans and on draft. The perfect antidote to the big beers of winter, Sneak Attack is crisp, dry and palate cleansing. It pairs perfectly with the rich and warming foods of winter: Bouillabaise, sausages, smoked meats and full flavored cheeses.

At the end, I pretty much love everything that I have had from this brewery. I have to say this beer kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I am a fan of this beer style, which is Saison. I am a little stun that I did not like this beer. I do not know if it is between the pepper or the lemon that is kicking through out the beer experience. I was a little disappointed, however, with that all said this does not mean you will not like this beer. I recommend you trying it because I would like to hear your thoughts on this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
