A Note on This Beer
If you’re a fan of absurdly fruity brews packed full of tropical flavor, pull on your Bermuda shorts and check out today’s silky-smooth sipper. The brewers made it for what they call ‘the Pontoon lifestyle,’ which involves hanging out on boats with your buddies drinking beer.
To get that boat drink vibe, the brewers loaded it with what they call a “metric ton” of papaya, passionfruit, guava, and pineapple. It really does taste like a smoothie from a beachside cabana!
Every sip overflows with all the flavors of those tropical fruits, all swimming through a tart Berliner Weiss-style base beer. The passionfruit and guava hit up front, slowly melting into pineapple notes that accentuate the pucker. Papaya gives the beer a thick, smoothie-like mouthfeel, like it came straight out of a blender.
If you don’t have a boat, don’t worry, your backyard will work just as well. Especially if you wear an awesome captain’s hat and make everyone call you Skipper.
Pontoon won 2 Gold Medals at the 2020 U.S. Open Beer Championships!
