Bent Paddle Wilderness Tuxedo P.O.G. Review

Name: Bent Paddle Wilderness Tuxedo P.O.G.
Style: Berliner Weisse
ABV: 4.4%
IBUs: 10

Bent Paddle has certainly come a long way since they first opened their doors in 2013. I recall a time where they had maybe 3-4 canned offerings available for purchase when they first opened and now they've got a much wider variety of options to choose from.

One of these options is their Wilderness Tuxedo series, a rotating series of Berliner Weisse beers which has gained a huge following amongst fans of Bent Paddle. The beer I'll be looking at today is their Wilderness Tuxedo P.O.G., which stands for Passion Fruit, Orange & Guava.

Appearance - Hazy yellow color with a light amount of visible carbonation. The head has a rather soapy look to it with no lacing retention.

Aroma - I'm picking up on some nice mango, melon and orange notes along with a light amount of floral hoppiness.

Tastes - Upfront I get some nice potent orange and passion fruit notes, which the back opens to more of a mango-like fruitness that is equally as potent before finishing with a tart aftertaste.

Wilderness Tuxedo P.O.G. shows to me just how versatile the brewery is at nailing different styles of beer. That goes without saying that this is an excellent beer and one that'll have me looking out for more offerings in the series going forward.

Bent Paddle Wilderness Tuxedo P.O.G. - 9/10
