Year of New Beer: Tropical Fruit Golden Ale, Hi-Wire Brewing (Asheville)

Written By: Dion on 12/28/2018

Nose is more subdued than I expected, with some mango, peach, and pineapple alongside honey and a sweet bread note. Initially a bit hot on the tongue as the alcohol pops, but warmth allows the tropical fruit notes to take charge. Plenty of fruit, honey, and caramel malt to stand up to the high ABV. This isn't great, but I've had far worse.
