Fantastic beer. I’m not sure you can go wrong with their beers. Try to go into the brew pub as well it is better in tap in Munster.

mambossa (64) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle to tulip, bottled on 6/23/15. Pours deep amber-red with pleasing head retention. Aroma of rich mango, pineapple, mandarin orange, skillfully paired with a foresty pine, delicate musk, covered in caramelly molasses; thick Simcoe presence apparent. Flavor of initial rich caramel quickly broken by a piney, grapefruit-rich hop bloom, ripe tangerine, moderate to light resin, easy carbonation. Fairly full-bodied and hop-foraward for a "pale ale". Great stuff.

I am not a pale ale expert so take my rating with a grain of salt. It’s decent nothing more than that

yourilevesque (301) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
Bière à la robe orangée et surmontée d’une belle mousse blanche et crémeuse. Nez mal défini qui se perd entre le gazon et, résine et des fleurs. Non pas que le nez soit déplaisant, mais il est à la fois tous ces ingrédients et aucun d’entre eux. En bouche, l’ensemble repose sur une base bien maltée. Les houblons se font discrets et n’apportent, encore une fois, rien de distinctif. Ça goûte les toasts aux fleurs! Bière de courte durée en bouche et de densité faible, je trouve que cette bière est mal définie manque définitivement de caractère.

Clean, hoppy, malty and almost biscuity aroma. Taste is hoppy but not bitter. Substantial aroma for the style with good long lasting aftertaste. Well done by 3 floyds ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
