This bottle conditioned Tripel pours a hazy burnt orange colour with a lingering white head with some yeast residue. Fruity tropical aromas – banana, passionfruit, honey emanate from the glass, with hints of malt. A stronger taste of malt in the flavour blends in well with the fruitiness. A fit carbonated, tasty smooth brew, which could easily be a sessional, until the high ABV steers you away from that idea.
This India Red Ale pours a darkish copper-red colour with a generous white head. The Aussie Galaxy, Topaz and Enigma hops gives this beer a real fruity sweet aroma. There is strong fruity hop flavour with sweet caramel malts prominent.
The Fat Man is an enjoyable beer, originally brewed for Canadian export, luckily us Aussies got a chance to taste it….but only as a special release!
