Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Pecan on 07-11-2013

Fortunate Islands shares the characteristics of an uber-hoppy IPA and an easy drinking wheat beer. A massive dose of Citra and Amarillo hops gives it a blastwave of tropical hop aromatics: mango, tangerine, and passionfruit all leap out of the glass. Brewed with 60% wheat malt, Fortunate Islands also has the mild, nutty malt backbone, reasonable ABV, and restrained bitterness to make it an outstanding session beer.

Very refreshing blend of hops and citrus flavor. Surpassed Black House as my favorite MT beer

16 oz can poured into nonic pint

A: Hazy dirty gold color not much head as it was a soft pour but the carbonation through the glass looks lively

S: So juicy very peachy light mango sweet maybe touches of bread and a little toffee

T: very peachy tasting some tangerine citrus surprisingly not as sweet as the nose would imply a little dry semi-sweet though very smooth no alcohol at all

M: Light and a little clingy which seems at odds but there it is

O: This is hands down my favorite wheat beer if you are forced to drink a wheat beer why not make it juicy with hops. Modern Times knocked this one out of the park Citra Hops in my Wheat beer why thank you I think I will.
