A vacation in a glass, this cloudy, bright yellow beer contains a host of tropical fruit characteristics. Its aroma is alive with juicy grapefruit, lemon zest, coriander, pineapple, and white pepper. The flavor follows suit and jumps with passion fruit, light sweetness and pleasant acidity. The bitterness is very low and there is no detectable hop flavor. It finishes tart, flavorful and semi-dry, and lingers only slightly. This quenching beer is both spritzy and fluffy in texture. Although clearly balanced to its fruity and spicy characteristics, none is overwhelming or overdone, which is a real feat. This delicious, fun beer is a treat for beer lovers and non-beer drinkers alike.
