Year of New Beer: Mood Ring: Pineapple, Mango, & Pink Guava, Bearded Iris Brewing Co (Nashville)
Written By: Dion on 09/15/2019
Mango and guava stand out on the nose, both softened in their intensity by a faint creamy vanilla. Just a touch of orange peel with warmth. On the tongue, a momentarily sharp burst of citrusy bitterness calms quickly under the lactose and vanilla. A pineapple sweetness is finally realized along the middle, joining a soft mango and guava. These fruits lend themselves so well to this style of beer. This falls just behind the Raspberry version on my list of favorite iterations of Mood Ring.
