Terrific Belgian-style ale from this up and coming brewery. Good strong head, off-white/gold color. Very floral and fruity nose and initial taste; slightly bitter but sweet mouth feel and finish. Worth tracking down each spring!

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Lots of fruitiness in this one. Lots of different spices but not spicy overall. The tropical-ness does really shine, kind of a hawaiian essence to it. 9-22-07; Rating the new batch - This is a great ale. Belgian in name, its really like a South Pacific take on its namesake, veery rich and malty. Sweet and flavorful with a great lingering bite. One of my first craft-brews remains one of my all-time favorites. Kudos.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle. Body-hazy copper brown with a medium ring of bubbles and a film of bubbles. Nose-unsweet apple juice, light hops, lemon. Taste-sharp, medium alcohol, light watered down citric juice, unrefined brown sugar, slightly sweet, clean Belgian yeast, not a lot of off flavors, alcohol really comes out on the back end, light slat, pineapple. Very well done, very well made. An excellent beer that really hits home with me.

CheersMate (1309) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Beer Junction in West Seattle. Nice lookin’ brew, I must say. Thin and wispy head sits on-top of a copper, ruby body. A nice fruity bouquet hits my nose. Coriander, oranges, banana, and a subtle hint of pineapple blend perfectly together. This has an awesome aroma. Wow, the texture is creamy and allows the beer to just slide right down the throat. Easy drinking here. This beer has all of the aforementioned aromas represented in the flavor. The one thing that really sets this beer apart, is the bitterness at the end. A striking bitterness that subtly lingers on the back of the throat and tongue. Much more pineapple in the flavor, than in the aroma. A true masterpiece, in my opinion.
