I have come to the CANclusion that I really need to CANduct back-and-forth reviews between the Eradication of The Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody & The CANQuest (tm) or I am going to get nowhere, fast. I just completed a brewery CANned horizontal with St. Benjamin, so it is time for a Dugges horizontal,

From the bottle: "Tropic Sunrise is our second Tropic-collabo with Stillwater Artisanal. We brewed this sour ale with lactobacillus and let it ferment with mango, pineapple and raspberry. Pinkish hue, rosy glow!"

A Pop! of the cap & I was off & running, Well, gently pouring the beer into an awaiting glass, anyway. Once it was sufficiently decanted, I performed a vigorous in-glass swirl to raise a finger of foamy, rocky, bone-white head with low retention, quickly returning to wisps. Color was solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. Nose held the great promise of truth in advertising - mango was prevalent, but I could easily perceive the tartness of raspberry & sweetness of pineapple. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not much beyond it, either. The taste was tart, especially thanks to the easily discernible raspberry, but since "tart" is NOT synonymous with "sour" & I was not getting the sour bite in my jaw, I have to dun them accordingly. The taste had a sweet, perfume-y quality, especially of raspberry accompanied with pineapple, underlain by mango. It was quite fruity & quite tart, but "sour"? No! Finish was dry, tart & puckering, but it was not "sour". Sorry.

Bottle.

A: Lots of mango, moderate berries, light pineapple with a moderately light sourness.

A: Orange yellow color, pretty hazy with a thinnish white head that quickly recedes into the glass and makes a fine ring.

T: Lots of mango, moderate raspberries, and light pineapple, followed by a clean moderate sourness that lingers through the finish.

M: Light bodied with moderately light carbonation,

O: Excellent; the beer has a great tropical, berry aroma that nicely complement's the beer's lingering sourness. Could use a little more carbonation, but all in all very tasty and easy to drink.

330 ml bottle, bottle cap has a best by date of 14-06-2018 printed on it. Served in a MadTree Teku, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Aroma is nice and fruity, the brew smells like mango, raspberry, tropical fruit and a bit of grainy malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, it's mostly fruity and the sweet and tart fruity flavors are well balanced. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's smooth and easy to drink with moderate carbonation. My only complaint about this beer is that the bottle is too little! I'd love to see this in 6 packs. If you like fruity and sweet/tart ales, don't pass up this one! $4.99 a bottle.

From a 330 ml bottle, pours a peachy colour with pretty much no lacing just a ring.
Aroma mangoes, pineapple, peach, juicy.
Taste tropical fruits a lot going on here very fruity and refreshing a hint of sourness but not bad.

Hazy orange color capped with a slender head of loose bubbly foam. Smell is straight fruit salad...ripe mango, berries, pineapple juice, peaches, and graham cracker crust. Fruit dominated flavor as well with mango and stone fruit sweetness mixing with a raspberry acidity and white gummy bears. Crisp, slick, and light bodied with some pucker from the lacto. As with Tropic Punch/Thunder, this one is kind of hard to rate as a beer. It's a delicious beverage for sure and that's probably all that really matters.
