500mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 11.99. Bottled 9/16/16. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter.

Pours a hazy pale goldenrod with a full finger and a half of white head. Faint wisps on the surface extend to a narrow belt, leaving only a couple small specks of lace.

Smells os pineapple, funky earthen Brett, grapefruit, piney mango and wet hay. There is something quite appealing about it that I keep returning to enjoy.

There is a sharp flavor juxtaposition of bright mixed tropical and citrus fruit with a crisp, earthy, semi fruity Brett funk. Pineapple juice, farmy Brett, passion fruit, citrus peel, wet hay and grass. I really like the Brett, hop and fruit blend to the point that it disappears quickly.

Chalky, medium feel with tingly carbonation. Funky and lightly bitter mix of grapefruit peel, pineapple core and earthy Brett in the finish.

Wicked Weed combines their wild side with ntheir hoppy side here. Metatropics may be more fruit and Brett than hops but it sure is damned tasty. Definitely one that I will buy again next time it comes around.

8 oz glass on tap

A: Small white fizzy head that disappears quickly. Body is a slightly hazy yellow straw color.

S: Lots of mango, papaya, apricot and a little wheat.

T: bursting with mango and papaya a little peach and pineapple. Light tartness not super sour has a crackery wheat finish.

M: dry light crisp and good carbonation.

O: This is an outstanding fruit beer, I hesitate to call it a sour because it really isn't but it's very easy to drink. It isn't sickly sweet has tons of fruit flavor and finishes clean.

Poured from the bottle into a Wicked Weed tulip/globe glass. Bottled September 16th 2016.

Slightly fizzy out of the bottle, but a quick dissolving faint white head barely half a finger tall. Hardly a collar at all, sitting in a bit of a dull dark lemon body presence. Hints to a bit of peach and apricot glow, but looking a little lifeless.

Very nice aroma. Slight sharp brett and hints of hay, with a good sense of tropical hop flavors. Hints a bit mango and possibly pineapple. There's almost a bit of a grassy smokey character to this as well. Real different and quite complex too.

Real fruit basket quality on first sip. Big amounts of tropical fruit flavor but also quite varied. Hints a bit of citrus oil on the finish, and mild sensing funk. Does mimic quite a bit of sensing new age hop varietals, by using primarily large amounts of fruit additions real nicely. Does get into tropicana juice box territory but far more flavorful. Limiting saison funk quality though compared to the nose.

Very refreshing brew, and quite a wild spin. Just wish it hinted more of some saison like characters.

Date Bottled: 9.16.16

Glowing yellow haze topped with a patchy layer of soapy bubbles. Stinky lacto funk, mango, damp hay, and grapefruit aromas. Flavor is fruitier upfront: delicious pineapple and passion fruit sweetness, orange juice, mango, and funky hay. Medium bodied, crisp, and juicy feeling drying the gum line. Funky fruity fun.

Bottle from their sour tap room in Asheville. Still have the really comfortable zip up I bought there. Bottled 9/16/16.

Duvel glass. A lacquered amber orange brew. Slight fizz.

Smells of sour apricots, with hints of peach & some macerated apple. Creamy yeast. Everything is like apples lately...

Tart & zesty upfront, turning to bitter & sour apricots. Dry grain, faint apple sweetness, then a lingering citric throat burn that falls off with some yeasty thoughts. Thin, a little boozy, sharply carbonated.

Not dense in fruit like their more expensive variants, but the essence is certainly there. Need my toothbrush.
