On tap at Biggie’s, laidback ‘grapefruit session ale’ stays stylishly soft-toned without getting unassuming. Tangy yellow grapefruit zest recedes as orange, pineapple, peach and mango dalliances come forth over gentle lemony hop astringency and light pilsner malting.
On tap at River Of Beer, succulent mango-juiced wheat ale delivers capacious stone fruiting over honeyed Graham Cracker sweetness and floral-perfumed hop splotch as lightly phenol carbolic spritz adds lemony seltzer-like tartness to latently downplay tangy mango piquancy. Syrupy peach, apricot and nectarine pureeing outdoes up-front mango adjunct over time. In the bottle, tangy mango, peach, tangerine and nectarine sweetness picks up cinnamon apple influence to contrast diacetyl gin-like juniper berry dryness.
