Dogfish Head Positive Contact

Dogfish Head Positive Contact is another of Dogfish Head’s experiments with mixing unique ingredients or combining beer styles to make something a little off center. Positive Contact is made with Fuji Apple Cider (from 300 lbs of Fuji Apples), Cilantro, and Cayenne Pepper. The base beer is meant to be an Imperial Belgian Wheat beer. The end result pours a nice bright golden color with a thick, long lasting white head, that will give you beer mustaches. It does carry an 8% ABV punch though, so you need to watch out. It does drink very easily. It has a distinct Belgian wit flavor to it. The apple is not clearly detectable. Nor is the cayenne pepper. There is a hint of the cilantro though, along with some honey, a little banana, some yeast and a little citrus. I really like this one a lot. I give it 4 out of 5 proper pints.
