3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… CCB Fruit in the Room 2011… Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Smells like a Pina Colado with only a whisper of coriander. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Very well-balanced – not sweet; not bitter. Nuances of pineapple and coconut in a pale ale body. Finishes crisp and fruity. This beer comes up just short of rocking. It power-ballads!

On tap at Fruit in the Room 2011. Hazy light gold pour. Nice coconut and lime aroma. Lots more of lime and coconut coming through in the taste and getting bigger as it warms. Tasty version of the white ale.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fruit in the room pour that was a nice light yellow with little head on the pour. Aromas of coconut suntan loation, screams tropical island for the aroma. Taste however was not as good as aroma, you get pineapple, coconut, mango, but they were not as stong as I was hoping for.

Fruit in the Room 2011. Nose is big on coconuts and some tropical fruits, mainly pineapple and mango. Some spicy notes from the yeast coming through but not overbearingly so. Nice and light yellow colored with thin white head. Flavor is smooth and fresh with coconut pineapple and spice. Good stuff.
