Tap @ Mayor Foco. Pours a hazy, golden yellow appearance with a fluffy white head. Spicy, herbal, floral, peppery aroma. Quite tart, tangerine, passionfruit flavor with a bunch of spiciness and fruity esters. Not my thing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled on tap at New Belgium Brewery on 10/3/12. This fruit beer pours a slightly hazy light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, kiwi fruit and ginger. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, with some tartness. The hops are herbal. Lots of kiwi fruit flavors, its sweet yet kind of tart. A touch of the ginger at the finish. Interesting beer, I can’t recall ever having a kiwi fruit beer. Hides the alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2012 On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy honey in appearance with a bright white head and decent lacing. Huge ginger, windex, light pineapple, orange, and kiwi in the aroma. Taste is super medicinal, with overpowering ginger, lemon zest, grass, cleaning supplies, and lime. Light body with high carbonation. Ginger is not really my thing and doesn’t seem to work here. Bleh.
