    Great beer. I have not had the original Zoe so I can’t compare how close this compares as a clone. Served this beer this past weekend a neighborhood get together and the 5 gallon keg was gone in 3 hours.

    Brewed 12 gallons of this and I must say, this beer will forever be on tap in my bar. Thank you for this recipe!

    Very balanced and flavorful. Brewed this over the holidays and it was a big hit.
