Pours an opaque ruddy copper color with a solid half inch ivory head that dissipates slowly into a film covering the surface.
Tangerine, grapefruit, and coriander are the first aromatics I detect. There's substantial belgian yeast character, a bit of musty, sweaty barnyard, and an underlying tropical fruit character of mango and pineapple.
Flavor explodes with tropical fruit. Cantaloupe provides the background, with huge lime, mango, and pineapple notes dominating the initial sip. Grapefruit clears the fruit parade, which ends somewhat abruptly with a fairly dry, powdery, peppery finish. Barnyard funk is subdued. The malt character is slightly bready but somewhat grainy, as well.
Body is moderate, with high carbonation that lightens the mouthfeel. There's noticeable alcohol warmth.
Overall, a fruit bomb of a beer, extremely complex. Lacks a lot of farmhouse character, but would be interesting to see how this develops over time.
Serving type: on-tap
