Bold and intense, this brew was named for the brewery's notoriously finicky fermenter #7, a tank they affectionately dubbed “the black sheep of our cellar family.” So naturally it had to be in that vessel that this wild brew would come together, with a sweet clementine and pink grapefruit citrus core kicked up with notes of crushed white florals and whole peppercorns. It's creamy but clean and refreshing, finishing dry, with a soft hoppy bitterness.
