Westbrook It's Tiki Time Review

Name: Westbrook It's Tiki Time
Style: Sour Ale
ABV: 5%
IBUs: 5

Time to take a look at a brewery that I’ve seen quite a bit about online but have never had the chance to check out until just very recently, and that brewery is Westbrook Brewing Company. The beer we’re looking at is named “It’s Tiki Time!” As you might’ve guessed, it’s a tropical-themed sour beer made with a laundry list of ingredients, which are: allspice, cinnamon, guava, key lime, lactose, passionfruit, pineapple & vanilla.

This is a brand new beer from them and they certainly sound excited about it because on their website, they proudly proclaim that “IT IS TIME TO TIKI.”

But is it though?

Appearance - Dark orange with lots of visible carbonation. The head has a thin foamy look to it with some spotty lacing.

Aroma – I'm picking up on some pineapple and guava notes with some light allspice and cinnamon notes.

Taste – Right away I'm getting some vibrant pineapple and guava notes in the front of the palate with passionfruit and lactose notes on the back. In the aftertaste, those Cinnamon & Allspice notes are prevalent without being too overpowering along with a mild lime tartness.

With all the flavors going down in this beer, it’s honestly very easy to see why Westbrook just can’t contain themselves because this beer is astounding. This might rank up there with Church Giggles as being one of my favorite sours that I’ve had thus far.

Westbrook It’s Tiki Time – 9.5/10
