Constructed atop Magic Rock’s signature Golden Promise malt bill and a hefty dose of wheat, rye and oats, this kettle-soured, tropical fruit-witbier takes advantage of several complex brewing techniques and flavours to create a truly beguiling beer. Coriander and turmeric were added into the boil to add zestiness, warming spice and a rich colour, while Citra and Equinox hops added tropical flavours to the body of the beer. ‘BrettTrois’ was then used to wholly ferment the brew and create tartness with delicate hints of mango and pineapple. Finally mango and passionfruit juice were added alongside a bold dry-hopping to create a burst of juicy aromas and flavours.

What’s Brewing 2016, day 1. Clear golden body with a white head. Spicy aroma with citric notes, herbs and wheat. Taste is dry and bitter, light sour notes, refreshing mix of bitter and sour finish. Nice.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Niewiele tu wita. Kwaskowate, owocowe (marakuja?), orzeźwiające. Ale siarka w aromacie nieco jednak denerwuje.

27/XII/16 - 33cl can @ Tim’s Christmas Tasting - BB: 1/VI/17 (2016-1494) Thanks to ElManana+1 for sharing the can!

Little hazy blond beige beer, small irregular off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: floral, bit fruity, some overripe fruits, mango, bit resinous, coriander, citrus. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, soft bitterness, very dank and hoppy, grassy, some tropical fruits. Aftertaste: bit spicy, coriander, sweaty feet, resinous, cheesy touch. Great, got all these things just from tasting, without knowing what was in it. Seems like I was able to detect a lot of the ingredients.

Lätt disig gyllengul öl med vit skum. Doften är fruktig med ananas, mango, örtighet, och vete. I smaken tillkommer en lättare fruktsyrlighet och en torr munkänsla.

Sjohnh (1023) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Yellow gold, slight haze, tiny white head. Medium body and carb. Aroma has citrus, some tropical fruit and malt. More of the fruit comes through in the taste, particularly the passion fruit and mango juices, and the malt body is good. Spices fairly subtle though the coriander peeks through.

mzaar (3691) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2017
Fat @ Oliver Twist. Klar guldfärgad med ett långvarigt vitt skum. Dofter av passionsfrukt, ananas, citron och gräs. Smakinslag av passionsfrukt, lime, ananas och vete. Syrlig och fruktig avslutning. Torr munkänsla.
