Tamarind (or Tropisch in Belgium) is a fruit renowned for its flavor and acidity. We used it in the boil to compliment the biscuit and roast of the malt and the floral components of the yeast in the non-traditional Belgian Brown Ale.

Draught at the brewpub in Bend. Hazy brown with a light beige head. The aroma has some stinky tamarind (Its just a stinky fruit to me, so they did a decent job of capturing its character), some toasty malt, and it a little salty and tart. The flavor has a funky tamarind tartness with light toasty and roasted caramel malts. Some fruity and spicy Belgian yeast character shows as well. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. More interesting of an idea and a decent execution of it than an actually good beer on the whole, but that might be because I just have never had the unique character of tamarind in a beer before. Regardless, I would probably have had a pint of this if I had had more time.

Strong fruity note that must have been from the tamarind rind. Sweet dark fruit character with a burnt molasses body and fig notes. Yeasty ester notes with slight pepper and spices abound.
