COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Forager Series
Paw Paw (Asimina triloba) is the largest edible tree fruit native to North America –but you may have never seen one before. The nondescript trees grow in wet, shady groves, often along the banks of rivers. Paw paws taste like mango-meets-butterscotch-meets-banana. In other words, they’re delicious. But the fruit’s notorious short shelf life keeps them from being commercially viable. We forage for wild paw paws around Jordan Lake, and a few North Carolina foragers who know the fruit bring us their harvest. Most of our paw paws come from the amazing Wynn Dinssen, owner of Full of Life Farms in Chatham County. True story: he’s a modern Johnny Pawpawseed. In the late summer of 2011, we collected 75 pounds of native paw paw.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2012
On tap at FS, Durham. Nice bright golden pour with a spritzy carbonation brought out nicely by the glassware. Nose of bright fruit, some pleasant yeast, and a nice dose of dry and spicy hops. A touch of heat added on in the taste, along with mellow, subtle fruit additions. Dry finish makes for a nice balance.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft at the brewery (from notes.) Bright yellow with fizzy, soda-like bubbles leading to a large, firm head. It’s a nice mix of barnyard funk and interesting citrus fruits...orange peel, banana, a little raisin. Clean, sharp finish with a bit of lingering sweetness. Tasty.

emacgee (4024) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draught at Milltown. Pours bright clean effervescent straw yellow with two fingers creamy white head. Nose is nice, grassy with some spice and mellow fruit. Notes of bread dough and Belgian yeast. Very spicy and prickly flavor with some citrus zest. Rich fruits and a slight doughy character. Light bodied and dry finish.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Pretty clear straw golden with a thick white head. Interesting nose; lots of fruit, minerals, slightly herbal, earth, coconut, banana, apple. Flavor is more reserved, lightly fruity, some sweetness, light bitternes. Interesting.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours pretty much clear golden with a fairly thin ring of white head. Nose of banana, Belgian yeast and sugars, and mild tropical fruit notes. Similar taste, and quite good... main critique is that it finishes a bit too sweet and not dry enough, but still one of my favorite beers from Fullsteam. Nice one.

OldGrowth (2663) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2011
At Brewpub, good aroma, sweet. Banana, butterscotch, coriander. Clean golden yellow. Small head faded quick, no lace. Sweet flavor. Lite body, oily creamy mouthfeel. Sweet finish with a sour streak about it. Nice, good aroma and flavor, think it’s better than other locals trying to do Belgian style....drinks easy for 8.8%...
