GenesisGenesis
Notes: Genesis is brewed with over 200 lbs of Mango, Papaya, Guava and Pineapple and aged for 6-12 months in a variation of white wine barrels. Each batch is artfully blended to accentuate the tropical and wild nature of the yeast and fruit.

2014 bottle. Clear golden yellow. White head with some lace.

Very fruity. Tropical. Mango and guava. Pineapple is faded. A bit tart, but fairly balanced. Smooth and easy drinking. Refreshing.

Poured from a tall bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour with a finger of fizzy white head. Falls fast... modest ring of lacing.

S: Tart and funky mixed with tropical fruit.

T.F: On the sour end of tart... lemon citrus, passionfruit, pineapple, and papaya. Moderate acidity... apple cider vinegar and green fruit. Funk, oak, and white wine. Medium to light bodied and well carbonated.

O: An excellent fruited sour. Drinkable complex.

A: Pours this beautiful, hazy apricot color, but with little retention. Very bubbly and carbonated.

S: The fruit is strong. Mango, guava, orange....and it seems like sour apple.

T: I served the beer chilled. At first, it had a very tart, granny smith, sour apple juice flavor. As it warmed, much more milder notes from the mango and guava arrived.

M: Fresh, bubbly, a party in your mouth. Excellent.

This is a lovely beer, but served too cold, it becomes too tart. With Pacificmost delivering most of the thrill, that would be my budget recommendation.

Bottled 12-20-14
Poured into mini snifter

Looks just like flat champagne on the pour. A tiny bit of fizz disappears quickly. The nose and taste are definitely of white wine grapes. Very nice sour.
