Wicked Weed Brewing Genesis

What the brewers say

“Genesis is brewed with mango, papaya, guava, and pineapple and aged for 6–12 months in a white-wine barrels. Each batch is blended to accentuate the tropical and wild nature of the yeast and fruit.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Medium sour note with a fruit melody with slight peach, green apple, pineapple, lemon, clove, tropical fruit, and a touch of sour. Floral Brett aroma.”

Flavor: “Light clean lactic sourness with flavors of apricot/peach skin. Cider-like green and red apple flavors. Lime and grapefruit notes with a low green apple note. Grainy malt sweetness. Cinnamon and bread crust tart sourness is very smooth, lactic. High fruitiness up front with a rush of moderate sour notes com- ing in. High carbonation complements the sour notes. Slight wood or oak notes. Linger is slight and sour.”

Overall: “Slightly sweet and lemony makes for a very tasty beer. Fruit character is very subdued. It is very easy to drink and only moderately sour. Nice clean lactic flavor dominates. There’s a lot going on, and I’m trying to pick out what the fruits are, but then the rush of sourness comes on.”
