3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Swinging Harry Tropical Quad. 750mL bottle, no date $27.99. Hazy reddish brown with a small beige head, down to a thick ring and tattered film. Tropical fruit nose (the mango most likely, some pineapple) tangy oak and spirit behind. Digging deeper some fruity yeast--raisin and figs, and brown sugar. Flavor has a little less tropical fruit, more sweetness, and definitely more booze and spirit. The spirit does help dry this out decently well. Dry fairly hot finish, bitterness peaked at a 3, lightly earthy. Light smooth carbonation with a full body. Actually not too bad, should just be maybe 2/3 the price. 7-4-8-4-15--3.8

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-12-04. Hazy brown body with a modest tan head. 3+ Aroma is fairly alcoholic, rich sweet malt with light caramel, and toasty malt notes. 7+
Flavour has rich sweet malty core, fruity and alcoholic. Tropical character of the fruit doesn’t really come out until it warms up. 7++ Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Just a touch boozier than my preference - though the alcohol is relatively restrained considering the abv - but a pretty solid take on the style. Bottle shared by Blankboy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kihoskh shared with esp0r, edvard and Simonsen at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014. Cloudy brown body with a thick tanned head. Aroma of apple pie, caramel, mango, belgian yeast, alcohol, wood. Taste is lightly sweet, plum, tropical hops, burned malt, anise, metallic hints, banana. Quite a lot going on here, the finish adds a hoppy fruit character and alcoholic burn, grand marnier character is there but very subtle. A nice beer, though maybe a bit over the top.

Hazy dark brown colored pour. Off-white head. Plenty of lacing. slight tropical fruit with some notes of dark fruit and raisins, malt. Taste isn’t much in the way of tropical and I probably wouldn’t drink it again unless it was freezing out.
