Evil Twin Tropical Itch

evil twin tropical itchEvil Twin Brewing has rapidly grown in popularity, with its one-off style and limited releases offerings since 2006. Operated as a “gypsy” brewery, meaning they set up shop temporarily in other breweries like Westbrook Brewing Company in South Carolina or Two Roads Brewing Company in Connecticut. Leasing out space is no small endeavor, as last year Evil Twin brewed more than 7,000 barrels!

Tropical is a Berliner Weisse brewed with Passionfruit.

4.5% ABV

Pour: Very light golden with lots of carbonation. Almost champagne like.

Head: A thick off-white forms and hangs around before slowly fading.

Nose: A good amount of fruit, lots citrus with a hints of passion fruit behind it.

Palate: Very light and even sour, the tartness hits you immediately. Still a lot of citrus with not as much passion fruit as I was hoping for. Pretty acidic on the finish from all the tropical fruit.

Overall: Much more sour then I was expecting, I’m a huge fan of Berliner Weiss and this is one of the mow sour ones I’ve had. Would have liked a little more fruit flavor but still another great offering from Evil Twin. It may be sour but is still super crushable. Pairs well honey ham, French fries or a raspberry cheesecake.
