From the menu: Double pale ale fermented with Nordic kveik yeast for tropical notes of pineapple, mango, papaya, and tangerine.

Dirty gold to amber color with a haze. Small, lasting head that provides rings and streaks for lace.

From the smell I detect light sweetness, like a drop of honey. There's some Juicy Fruit qualities to the aroma. A bit like candied papaya.

More sweet than sour, there's a of cream to the taste. Rich body with a lower carbonation level. The finish has enough hop bitterness to bring balance. Very complex beer with many elements to unravel. The smell is really not duplicated in the flavor which makes this beer even more alluring.

This one pours a mostly clear dark orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like herbal hops and yeast, citrus peel, grapefruit, pepper, bubblegum, pineapple, mango, and tangerine.

This is a nice surprise from this brewery - they are hardly known for their hoppy pale ales. The Norwegian yeast twist makes it a little more OEC-like, though. It finishes dry, with some candied bubblegum, herbal hops, grapefruit, and pineapple juice type flavors as well. There's a bit of piney bitterness, too.

This is light bodied, clean, and very drinkable, a nice crisp finish.

This was a really fun beer to get a chance to try. I hope OEC continues making some interesting non-sours.
