Much like all of Surly's other anniversary releases you have never had a beer quite like this.
On to the beer!
Seviin pours out a light amber color into a snifter with a tiny wisp of off white head. The smell is green hops and earthy musty Belgian yeast. The flavor is a large amount of green fruity hop character mixed with a pepper spice and slightly warming alcohol yeast flavor. The finish is dry but has a sneaky cereal malt impression from the thickness of rye, oats, and wheat. No real wild yeast presence is detectable yet, but given time this beer could turn into something very complex with all of the malt there is for the Brettanomyces to ferment through while in the bottle. A great candidate for the cellar. There is an amazing crispness to this beer with all it's malt complexity and abv.
