Lively blonde moderation brewed with lime and orange zest bursts forth with citric resilience. Limey orange-peeled grapefruit pith bite receives light piney hop bittering and dry pale malting. Brisk, clean, citrus-forward delight outdoes its usually nebulous stylistic competitors.
“Infinitely drinkable” moderation. Easygoing floral-daubed lemon zing gains mild straw-dried buttered corn salting and biscuit-honeyed pilsner malt breading. Too modest even for its light-bodied style.
On tap at Mohawk House, unique herbal potion with dried flowers, light pink lemonade influence and fungi-like Belgian yeast funk is truly an acquired taste. Minty citrus zestiness disrupted by floral hibiscus, saffron and rosemary snips.
On tap at Taverna Rossa, easygoing pale body utilizes bittersweet wildflower honey, subtle cinnamon-sugared mesquite beans and mild hop bitterness to engage lagered yeast. Blood orange tartness and oaken vanilla smidge backup.
Summery light-bodied tropicalia needs deeper coconut thrust. Crisp lemon zest awakens mellow toasted coconut influence as mild hop astringency punctuates vanilla-sugared citric surface above frail wheat-corned malting. Teasing lemon meringue, lemon coconut cake and lemon custard illusions flutter.
On tap at Mellow Mushroom, soft-toned Belgian pale ale gathers sweet banana-clove-vanilla conflux, lemon meringue tartness, estery grape souring and orange-dried apricot murk to contrast earthen fungi-like herbage and mild white peppering to its biscuit-y malt bottom.
Busy l’il hybridized spring ale stays stylishly rich and complex as honey-spiced dried fruiting gains momentum over spruce-juiced hibiscus and chamomile adjuncts. Moderate dark cherry and prune tones waver.
