3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear bright golden pour with ring of white head. Extremely floral nose like lilacs, rose hips, and peach blossoms. Semi light tart note of persimon or kumquat and again, lots of floral notes. Kinda like pear juice and lemograss and passionfruit. Very unique. And even though i disliked it at first, it really grew on me.

22oz bomber courtesy of Anndiesel. Filtered orange-tan. Interesting mix of big boozy golden malt and mildly funky tropical fruit. Creamy, the filtration really lets the feijoa shine. Very unique, the tropical tones are very pleasant, and while the beer is big, it isn’t overwhelmign on the palate. A pretty cool offering from NG+DDC.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Pours clear orange/copper. Slight, transient white head. Aroma is rather fruity - hibiscus seems discernible. Med body. Flavor is tart fruit, with some Belgian yeast/spice aspects. Getting some banana ester as all the main stuff flows away. Really quite odd. It has a pineapple acidity. And some berry. Hibiscus seems to have gotten lost. Finishes drier than the aroma suggested, and still acidic/tart.

Pours a reddish gold color with a thick white head. Smells tart and sweet, very refreshing with hints of vinegar and citrus. Tastes tangy and refreshing. Hibiscus flavors, fruit (perhaps the feijoa, but I’ve never had that and don’t know what it tastes like), very nice yeasty spiciness. Spicy and sour finish, with a sweet end note, like caramel. A bit sticky on the finish, but clean overall.

Amazing and unique tropical fruit flavors on this one. The fruit flavor also packs a tangy punch. Balanced out by some sweetness.

On tap at Milltown. Pours a clean and sharp blonde with one finger of white head. Nose is EXTREMELY vinous. Smells like Chardonnay... with some tropical fruit and a racy acidity coming through. Tastes like white wine, noticeable acidity/tartness (almost sour...) with tropical fruit and pepper. Very interesting. Couldn’t have much.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark orangish color with a small, sticky white head. Aroma of citrus and melon-like fruit. I don’t know what a Feijoa is but I imagine it might be that. Mild booze as well. Flavor is fruity, mostly dominated by the Feijoa fruit, some melons and berries. Some booze. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied, slight carbonation. Finishes sweet. This is a nice beer.

Tart up front, sweet middle, T - tart fruity notes up front. Berries, peaches, apricots. Malty tripel palate. To a sour malty strawberry banana esq esters. Ends with a rotted fruity end.
