Clouded ochre-orange with a yellow undertone, this saison pours with fine, moderate head.

With spice and citrus notes on the nose, one can guess why this seasonal offering bears the moniker “tropicale”.

Lime-lemon on the tongue with lush but balanced maltiness, with a light mouthfeel. Rye and oats are used in addition to the classic barley malt, which changes the malted aspects of the brew.

Slight hoppy film on the finish, but still quite clean overall.

Although expensive, at 7.7% ABV, this is really two beer for the price of one.

Well worth trying, particularly if you’re a fan of their Pink Fuzz.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
