Far Yeast Off Trail Mango Supercollider : Aroma & Taste
Far Yeast Off Trail Mango Supercollider poured out a hazy golden orange yellow colour with a thin amount of white head on top that faded to leave a few bubbles on top. The aroma was a pretty straightforward one of mango and sour notes, with some oak woodiness for extra measure. That’s not to say it was boring, but there wasn’t the complexity of flavour that a full aged sour beer would have. It was only after researching about Far Yeast Off Trail Mango Supercollider did I learn that it was technically a kettle sour – that would explain the lack of depth in the beer.
The body of Far Yeast Off Trail Mango Supercollider was pretty much what the nose was – mango with a tart sour flavour that was smooth and neither aggressive or abrasive. If anything, some more sour flavour and complexity would have been appreciated to help balance out the sweetness to the beer. Far Yeast Off Trail Mango Supercollider finished off with a lingering sour, mango flavour that tasted natural.
Far Yeast Off Trail Mango Supercollider : The Bottom Line
In spite of the complexity of the description to Far Yeast Off Trail Mango Supercollider, it was a fairly straightforward fruited sour.
