There’s a local place in town that has really good food and a decent beer list that changes up with relative frequency. We go there a lot, but it’s just generally sad-looking inside. I wish they would give the place a good renovation given the amount of dust in the place. This was the beer that I chose one of the last times that I was there.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Paradise Pucker is inspired by the classic Hawaiian juice, infused with passion fruit, orange peels, and guava to create a delightful and refreshing sour ale. 11 INGREDIENTS: Passion Fruit, Orange Peel, & Pink Guava; Rogue Farms McKercher Wheat; Pilsner and Acidulated Malts; Rogue Farms Liberty Hops; Amarillo Hops; Yogurt; Kolsch Yeast and Free Range Coastal Water.”
Random: They recommend pairing this beer with spicy pork.
The beer poured with a quarter finger of white head that dissipated quickly. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and yellow with moderate carbonation. The nose was tart with some unripe
pineapple. It also had some guava and passion fruit on the nose as well. The taste was incredibly acidic. It had lemon peel, unripe mango and orange and then transitioned into guava and kumquat. The body was light with a lot of carbonation. It had a long, sour finish. I thought this beer was interesting, but it would be difficult to drink more than one. I could see how this could be a great pairing with spicy food.
