Brewery Insights: Spectrum is a sour ale with hibiscus, cinnamon, and chili peppers


Overall Score: 6.2

Spectrum has the appearance of a normal beer, which isn’t surprising considering the colors of hibiscus and cinnamon. The palate is low to mild in sourness with strong cinnamon and hibiscus notes that remind you of nutmeg and Christmas. Spectrum is similar to a cider based on the flavor profile and light sourness. Depending on palates, this is ale will receive varying scores and divide the sour community. Ultimately, the brewery achieved the desired outcome of tasting notes and the finish is dry and crisp. We appreciated our experience, but won’t be a repeat consumer.

Degenerate Discussion

Spectrum tastes like someone spiked the punch at the Christmas party, and thank god, because you couldn’t listen to one more boring story from your piece of shit boss. The only criticism is the spiker should’ve went deeper than 5.3% on the punch, so Sheila in accounting would be more willing to lose a button on the blouse. Our hope is one Degenerate is out there reading this and relating to our fictitious Sheila, just hoping to see her cans one day. Cheers to them and all Degenerates!
