Can, gift from Bierkoning (shop), at Amsterdam. Opaque hazy red brownish color, small off - white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sour, some fruits. Nice flavor while in your mouth but once you’ve swallowed it it’s gone. Just a dry finish left. Low to medium body and carbonation.

12 ounce can
Thanks to a West Coast contact for sending me a can of this. I have the Jolly Pumpkin version on deck and after trying this will open it as soon as I can. If it is anything like this release then it should be a great experience. Two thumbs up for a winning partnership.
Aroma / Appearance - Muddy river water pours into the glass with a lush lively carbonation and short lived head. Pineapples, passion fruit, and mango merge with fresh from the oven cherry pie. This is as close to tropical as you get without that imperial IPA over the top hop presence.
Flavor / Palate - Passion fruit, mango, and cherries carry a pleasant tang from the first sip to the back of the throat. Sort of like a mai tai in beer form this goes down far too quickly. Well balanced and exceptionally rich this would be great to keep around the house for hot summer days.
