Seems like Goose Island’s Brewmaster has practically managed to bottle fruit salad and call it beer. Fruit aromas are very pronounced, with lashings of watermelon, honeydew melon and cherry all sitting atop a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The juicy palate shows more fruit – it’s like drinking up the leftover liquid after eating the last fruit salad cube. However, an omnipresent bitterness reminds you that this is a beer, not an Ocean Spray Cocktail. Too bad beer doesn’t contain any roughage, because this would be a great substitute for a healthy dessert.

Bottle - many hops in the aroma. Grassy, citrusy and pine notes. Dirty gold color. Malty with a fairly complex hop flavor. A nice citrus hop finish. Slightly fizzy. Better than I remember it.

Hazy amber with small head, fair lacing. Lots of hops, resiny, fruit with toffee in aroma with light yeast presence. Medium bodied with long bitter finish, tempered by pleasant maltiness.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with high beige head. Aroma is hops, bread, malts. Taste is light, bitter and a bit sweet with notes of bread, grass and flowers.

The first thing I smell is grapefruit, which is odd because upon closer inspection sweet malts and darker fruits prevail. The taste is odd as well: there is some mild citrus and semi-sweet malts and then...nothing. Very clean with little carbonation. There’s enough going on to make me say ’interesting’ instead of ’flat.’

Bière achetée dans un Deli près de Times Square. Couleur cuivrée, avec une belle mousse. Nez de malt avec des noisettes grillées. En bouche, la Honker’s ale est maltée, avec des notes caramélisées d’une rousse standard. Rien de bien spécial à signaler, mais c’est tranquillo et rafraichissant. Bière d’entrée de gamme qui plaira à tous. Le houblon est léger, donc il ne repoussera personne, et le malt est assez intéressant et équilibré pour intéressé les non initiés. Cheers!
