From Steamworks Brewing in Burnaby BC comes their latest release the “Tropical Tart Ale”. The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head. The aroma consists of passion fruit, pomegranate and an overall fruit juice base with sweetness and a hint of tartness. The flavour is of tartness up front but not overbearing, passion fruit, pomegranate and an overall tropical note, mineral notes but not overly sweet. The alcohol content comes in at 4.9% with an IBU of 15. This is going to be a very popular summer beer and I hope it hangs out all summer!
