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.

A well made and overall delightful blend of aromas made me expect a stronger flavor body. Not that it was lacking in flavor but it does set a high expectation when the aroma is so rich and colorful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a clear deep gold with a white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has notes of grapefruit and bitter citrus with sweet wheat and a hint of tropical fruits. Flavor starts with citrus and sweet wheat but has more of a tropical fruit finish.

Cunningham (5652) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2015
Hazy golden color (as far as it is possible to in the dark dungeon) with a fine white head. Citric, wheat and fruity aroma. Inviting stuff. Ok carbonation and a fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Citric, wheat, herbal and tropical flavor. Nice tasty ale.

Smell is fruity and grassy with wheat crackers, grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, moist grass, pine needles, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is tiny bitter, fruity and grassy. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny astringent, tiny watery and light bodied. Finish tiny bitter with wheat crackers, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals and lemon zest.

From can to pint glass. Wonderful dense aroma of tropical fruits, mango and star fruit. Pours crystal clear pale gold with moderate low white head and minimal retention. Flavor is tropical and a moderate amount of juicy fruit. Moderate bittering and a dry finish. Lemon lingers late.
