This beer presented itself a muddled yellow below a huge, frothy head.   I sensed substantial levels of fruit in the nose—mango, pineapple, and a hint of lemon.  It featured a crisp, citrus tartness in the flavor, with good levels of acidity and fruit flavor.  Its substantial measure of carbonation and dryness in the mouthfeel both aided in its drinkability.  The solid tartness of the beer coupled with some funk and tropical fruit flavor makes this a good daily drinker, one that would couple well with a variety of cuisines.
