3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
