Year of New Beer: Chopper Series: Banana Daiquiri, Southern Grist Brewing (TN)

Written By: Dion on 06/10/2019

Initially, lime dominates the nose. Just a few minutes in the glass, however, brings a banana cream and hints of clove. Very unusual aroma, but it's nice. Pretty seamless transition to the tongue, with the tartness of the lime again taking center stage. I had no idea how the banana would work in this, honestly expecting it to be artificial. Instead, it's subtle, blending nicely with the lactose to produce a cream pie effect along the mid-palate. Very interesting addition of the "tiki" spices, which offer up waves of nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, and clove, none of which overpower. This is the craziest beer I've tasted in a while. And I was a little sad when it was gone.
