COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fortunate Islands shares the characteristics of a hoppy IPA and an easy drinking wheat beer. A massive dose of Citra and Amarillo hops gives it a blastwave of tropical hop aromatics: mango, tangerine, and passionfruit all leap out of the glass when poured. Brewed with 60% wheat malt, Fortunate Islands also has the mild, nutty malt backbone, reasonable ABV, and restrained bitterness to make it an outstanding session beer.

Ridiculously large sample in Ohai. Clear gold color with bubbly carbonation and a small white head. The aroma is peaches and fruity hops. Lighter flavor with a little bitterness and a hint of wheat. Fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djoeye (3170) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2016
Look; off white fine tight high head. Not completely clear golden body. Aroma; hops, citrus, caramel, berries, peel, soft sweetness. Taste; hops, fruity citric peels, leaves, juicy light malts, more wheat notes in the finish, and still nice peels there. Palate; normal body, soft carbonation, fresh feel. Overall; wheat ale served at 5’c is very very likeable. [tap@BishopsArms Luleå]
