Details

Beer never fails to surprise. When you think you know a style, or have an expectation, beers from breweries like Modern Times are here blow them out of the water. On the can, it says this is a wheat beer, but Fortunate Islands has more in common with an IPA: super hoppy and full of mango, tangerine and passionfruit characteristics from boat loads of Citra and Amarillo hops. The 60% of wheat malt, instead of defining the beer, adds depth, mouthfeel and a dryness that makes this so drinkable. Another flawless beer from Modern Times. PS: On their website is also the homebrew recipe for this beer. Cool.

This beers pours a nice copper and is rich in pineapple, there is a slight wheat edge to it but nothing like a German wheat. Finish is very quick with no real bite.
