Style | ABV
Limited (brewed once).
"A blend of Belgian wheat beers that were all aged in inoculated Old Tom gin barrels. The blended beer was then aged for three months on soursop, a sweet and savory fruit from Southeast Asia and the Caribbean."
Because of blending and barrel-aging, the brewer estimated the (not calculated) ABV at between 6.0 - 8.0%.
Released on draught and in 750ml bottles December 2011

First had: on tap at their brewpub
Poured a hazy straw yellow with a healthy white head that left light patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma was a good balance of sweet and tart, notes of juniper, and bore semblance to a citrus martini. Taste was tart up front, almost like a lambic or wild ale, citrus and fruit flavor from the soursop (I assume, having never tasted soursop before), slightly lactic, with a wheaty acidity; gin was subtle and clean, which is good, since I do not care for said type of alcohol. Medium body, quite unique, and quite drinkable overall.
Serving type: on-tap
