Beer Review: NEW BELGIUM PRICKLY PASSION SAISON

Beer Review: NEW BELGIUM PRICKLY PASSION SAISON

The liquid unfolds into a hue that shimmers with amber-tinted gold, crowned by a persistent white froth that seems determined to linger.

Aroma

The olfactory experience is greeted by the essence of fruity Belgian yeast, a prelude to the flavors that await.

Taste

The taste profile echoes the fruity Belgian yeast, accompanied by subtle notes of clove. The anticipated passion fruit and prickly pear are joined by a medley of apple, pear, and grape, creating a fruit symphony.

Mouthfeel

A full-bodied affair with an effervescent dance of lively carbonation on the palate, adding a dynamic touch to the overall experience.

Overall

While the concept and name hinted at an enticing adventure, the reality fell short of expectations. Despite the promising fusion of passion fruit, prickly pear, and earthy Saison yeast, the end result felt more like a conventional Belgian golden. The visual appeal and initial anticipation did not align with the final taste, leaving me with a sense of unmet excitement.
