Dugges Tropic Punch Ale


Just off the western coast of Sweden, Dugges Brewing is an idea turned reality for Mikael Dugge Engström, who is not only the founder but head brewmaster.

Dugges is known for lots of hops, strong flavors, and experimenting with new styles of beer. They often release small test batches like Tropic Punch Ale, a sour fruit beer brewed with mangos and passion fruit. It’s a collaboration with nomadic brewer Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal.

ABV: 4.5%          

Pour: A hazy golden color, like tropical fruit punch. A very small head forms but fades quickly.  

Nose: Fruit, fruit and more fruit with a slight tartness on the end.

Pallet: On the lighter side with a slight sparkle. Super juicy with plenty of peach, mango and passion fruit to go around. The finish is clean with no acidity and mild tartness brings it all together.

Overall: Wow! I wasn’t really sure what to expect when opening this one, I’ve had plenty of sour ales that are brewed with tropical fruits but you can really taste them in this one. One sip is full with sweet peaches and the next with more of a passion fruit feel, the back and forth is delicious and refreshing.
