Year of New Beer: Kiwi Coconut Fizz, Evil Twin Brewing (NY)

Written By: Dion on 10/28/2019

A warm October day is the only excuse I need to close my eyes and cling stubbornly to summer. And this beer helps transport me back, if only for a moment. Notes of sweet apple and white grape are intertwined with lemon and hints of sourdough on the nose. On the tongue, a bit of candied fruit leads the way, with a juicy kiwi anchoring. In short order the sweetness subsides under a zesty bite, as lemon and tart berries provide a slight pucker. Nothing really screams 'coconut' here, but I'm certain it contributes to the underlying ribbon of sweetness. Comes off as much mixed drink as it does beer. Very enjoyable.
