A: The pour is a slightly hazed orange/amber color with almost no head. S: As the name might imply, this one is full of tropical fruits such as mango and pineapple. A hint of vinegar and a mild tartness make for an intriguing nose. T: The vinegar quality is a bit more up front on the palate and provides the bulk of the tartness. The tropical fruit flavors are once again in full effect. A mild grapefruit flavor provides some sourness as well as bittnerness. M: The body is on the light end of medium with a very gentle carbonation and a mild dryness on the finish. D: I was pleasantly surprised by this one, especially after some of the remarks about the other Drake’s sour beers. I hope this one pops up again.

Draft at Stone Oakquinox 2010. Lightly cloudy orange amber pour. Sour fruits, belgian yeast, light bready malt, tropical fruit, and citrus. Not too sour, very nice flavor. Well Done!

Tap @ Stone Oakquinox. Pours a deep, hazy sunset orange with zero head. Nice medium sour notes of grapefruit, mango, and some faint diacytal qualities. A very cool blend from the guys at Drakes.
