Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A variation of our original collaboration beer with Evil Twin (Brooklyn/Denmark), the newest batch received a healthy dose of organic pineapple, nectarine, and goji berry. One of many combinations of fruit to come, the fruit helmet series is all about starting with a nice hoppy base, and elevating it with strangely delicious fruit. This beer has the power to teleport your mind to tropical places – so use it wisely. Refreshing and juicy, Fruit Helmet II will help you take full advantage of the last weeks of summer.

Bottle purchased from the brewery. Shared with friends and served in a Cantillon taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and no lace. Lightly hazed orange-bronze body.

S - Smells like malt, with very little fruit character. Sugar cookie, caramel, toasted grain, and perhaps a hint of pineapple. Not much hop character either; just a very malty ale.

T - The taste is less sweet and a tad more bready. There's some nebulous tropical fruit that I'd probably mistake for some specific hop varietals, and the expected accompanying bitterness.

M - Dry, crisp, clean, medium body, with moderate carbonation. Pleasant enough, and no perceptible alcohol.

D - As an amber ale this would be solid, but as a fruit beer it's pretty disappointing. I don't think enough fruit made its way into the beer, or perhaps it was introduced too early in the process and just got fermented out.
