Brewer Description: (from website) With this week’s release, we’re thinking of all our east coast friends facing down Florence. A wide-arcing display of citra + denali + styrian wolf that glistens with notes of strawberry creamsaver, heavy pulp orange juice, crushed pineapple & lime soda, alongside a sprinkling of blue, indigo, and violet to round it off.

Intro: A 16 fl. oz. can, with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A murky dark yellow colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention, but left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple and orange juice with a hint of pear and lime.
Taste: Fruity, light bitterness, similar to the aroma with orange juice, mandarin zest and pith, milky fruit, pineapple and a touch of lime.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Quite nice, its fruity but not really as juicy as expected, maybe because of the milky fruitiness that comes through in the taste.
