One of those Wow beers that makes me write a review

Poured from tap into a Duchesse 25cl wine glass at Brews Brothers Galveston

L: no head or lacing. They had to walk it out to me since they’re serving on the patio during SD. Luxurious off-light orange, hazy.

S: I downgraded only because it’s not as complex as the taste. Everything is mixed together.

T: Kaboom. Sweet citrus (not an ipa citrus!), but with the subtle spices mentioned in the official description, maybe a little Earl Grey. The complexity reminds me of Tripel Karmeliet. Sweeter than that beer, certainly, but one where you go “There’s a lot going on here!”

F: nothing interesting. Very easy and could be easy to drink too many.

O: definitely happy I had a second beer tonight. The first one was excellent (Jolly Pumpkin), but so many unusual ones on the list made me have another. This one was a hugely pleasant surprise. Memorable.

Pours a very hazy golden color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is minimal as is lacing. Has a big tropical aroma with a tartness. Juicy tropical fruit taste with a good amount of tartness at the end. Has a sandy like finish like a protein drink. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.
