Beer Camp 2017 Mikkeller Thai-Style Iced Tea Ale

Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp 2017 collaboration with Mikkeller seemed to me to be one of the most interesting beers. Thai-Style Iced Tea Ale, brewed with lactose, orange peel, black tea, tamarind and star anise. Just WOW! 7.2% alcohol. PKGD 04/20/17 (and I wrote this early July, in case you care.)

Plenty of tea and a little citrus aroma. Really interesting blend of flavors. Big tea flavors with lots of orange and citrus and a giant spice basket, presumably the tamarind and star anise. Rich body, lightly sweet, and super flavorful. For me, though, the spices were a little too much. Extremely interesting but not exactly my cup of tea.
