Brewery Ommegang (Cooperstown, New York) has officially announced the release of Fruition as the latest addition to its Year-Round lineup.
To provide their fans with a fantastic, new option during the warm weather months, the folks at Brewery Ommegang have developed and released Fruition as a refreshing remix on a classic. Dry-hopped with Cascade and Citra hops, this Wheat Beer starts with a base of Ommegang’s beloved Witte that is then “given a tropical twist with the addition of mango, kiwi, and passion fruit juices” during fermentation. “Tropical fruit and citrus aromas dominate the nose and the flavor” while the beer’s “malted and unmalted wheat and oat flakes” provide the drinker with a smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Clocking in at 5.3% ABV, Fruition is an easy-drinking go-to that finishes “resoundingly dry with nice effervescence.”
“As with every beer we brew, we strive to make all the elements blend together, and we think we’re succeeded in that quest with Fruition. This beer is our first foray into the tropical fruit flavors that consumers find so appealing with New World hop varieties, and we look forward to feedback from fans.”
– Phil Leinhart, Brewmaster at Brewery Ommegang
Fruition is available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft. You can find this new Year-Round beer available at fine beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, New York and throughout the rest Ommegang’s distribution area. Prost!
