Big thanks to miketd for this bottle. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear super light gold with a one finger white head that faded down to leave a thick dense quarter inch blanket. Just doesnt quit! Nice and thick side lacing too. Very, very nice.

S - Interesting aromas here. Definitely get that banana and super light mango. Some light brett funk, gentle lemon citrus along with some tropics. Very, very unique and interesting.

T - Wow, okay. Gone is the banana and is instead replaced by papaya and mango (both of which are light). Some nice light brett funk, lemons, gentle tartness. Some light tropical pineapple as well, faint orange. This is almost like a mimosa. I agree with what another reviewer posted; this is like a breakfast beer!

M - Mouthfeel is outstanding for the style. Super light with gentle prickly carbonation with the alcohol almost entirely hidden. One of the best examples of wild ale mouthfeels I have ever enjoyed.

O - Overall, this was an outstanding beer. Super unique, wish the aroma was better. All in all though this was a very tasty, incredibly drinkable beer from Jackie O's. Loved it.

Bottle 26 of 216

Appearance: Pours a murky apricot color without much of a head and, what there is, fades quickly, leaving a few dots and dashes

Smell: As the beer warms, the paw paw aromatics come through, bringing the subtle hints of banana, lemon, passion fruit, star apple and guava; plenty of Bretty funk, too

Taste: The malt bill of an APA underpins the explosion of fruit and sour flavors that build in the middle; before the tart flavors, the paw paw really delivers with banana, star apple and passion fruit until it gets overwhelmed by lactic sourness; funky Brett flavors develop in the aftertaste, but the finish is primarily sour

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation; puckery

Overall: We grow paw paws in North Carolina, too, so I have some idea what they are all about and this beer really shows them off well; I suspect the sourness has built over the last few years this beer has aged in my cellar; a first rate effort
