Twang is a sound: the snap of a guitar string, the spring of a diving board, the shock of Wile E Coyote being shot from a giant bow. Twang is a sound… so how does it so perfectly describe the taste of this beer??
This tropical kettle sour is super light yellow and slightly cloudy, with plenty of hop presence on the nose thanks to the Galaxy, Wakatu and Citra. Take a sip, and experience citrus… with a twang. Passionfruit… with a twang. Mango, peach, apricot… with a twang. It could also be described as a zip, a zing, or a thwack, but twang contains everything you need to know. An entry level sour, with enough tartness to bring a new level of interesting to the tropical hops, but gentle enough to introduce to people who aren’t used to sour beers. A dry, tart finish brings a slightly savoury aftertaste, dispelling any puckering that took place.
Don’t overthink it. Just drink it.
