Notes: Collaboration with Omnipollo Brewing

Cocktails like the Mai Tai, Zombie, and Painkiller were born from the desire of mixologists to push the limits of tropical flavors. We've recently introduced some Island-Inspired Seesaws, but when Henok from Omnipollo, a brewer unafraid to test the limits, visited for Field Trip, we wanted to push the concept even further. Brewed with pineapple, pink guava, passion fruit, toasted almond, vanilla bean, toasted coconut, lime, and lactose, Shake Senora is an Imperial Sour Ale partially aged in rum barrels. Presenting a warm bronze color in the glass, Shake Senora offers an intricate array of aromas ranging from juicy pineapple and fresh-shaved coconut to guava nectar and passion fruit. A hint of warming complexity from the rum barrels makes an appearance towards the back of the palate. Cheerfully tart, and deceptively easy-drinking, Shake Senora is a playful reminder of warm, summer days as we inch closer towards winter in New England.

Got this on a lark at Trillium’s Fenway hall. Had no clue what I was getting. I have never had a fruit/wild ale. The closest I have had is a hopped cider.

Pours an opaque orange with a thin head.

Smells like a tart pineapple. Like Tang from from way back.

Tastes fruity with a light consistency and carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. The alcohol content is well hidden.

This could be a good mixer. Add rum ? Ginger?

Happy to have stumbled on to this in-beer brew!

Really unbelievable as a cocktail beer - love the fruit sharpness against the sweeter notes. Remarkable on how it maintains is overall profile after warming a bit in the glass. Kind of the best mix of a lemon meringue pie and a pina colada

Great tropical tiki sour ale, fresh tart pineapple, passionfruit, guava, lime, toasted coconut, vanilla bean and toasted almonds come in waves with some creamy lactose, sweet brown sugar and rum barrel, with some honey cereal malts. Notes reminiscent of pina coladas, guava lime juice with vanilla and almonds, rounded, smooth, balanced acidity with some sweetness.
