Von Ebert Brewing Islands in the Stream

What the brewers say

“Can-conditioned saison brewed with white wheat, triticale, and pilsner malt.”

What our panel thought

“Tropical soap perfume—papaya, melon, dried peach, and strawberry—meld with pepper and clove spice. The malt sweetness carries pleasantly complex hop notes that combine hints of old-school Noble character with a fun tropical twist. There’s just enough phenolic spice to round things out, and the dry finish is a pleasant palate cleanser.”

What our editors thought

“Quirky and clever mix of traditional saison herbal and floral notes with a very light contemporary tropical-fruit edge. In the sip, the aspirin note is buffered by softer tropical edges—mango and papaya with just a touch of citrus. Subtle, but entertaining.”
