Toppling Goliath ‘Dragon Fandango’ Fruited Sour


“Mango, passion fruit, and dragon fruit combine in this unique kettle sour beer.”

Glassware: Teku.

Appearance: Wow! One of the most stunning pours that we’ve seen in a while. It literally shines a bright red colour which looks like some sort of freshly squeezed fruit and veg juice. It forms a big and fizzy three finger head but it quickly disappears. No head = no lace.

Aroma: If we were blindfolded it’d be hard to tell the difference between this and an actual glass of fruit juice. It’s bursting with mango puree, passionfruit, pineapple and guava. The dragonfruit is pretty subtle…guess it’s more for colour and a flutter of orchard fruit. It’s hard to pick up anything else really. But that is in no way a bad thing. Exquisite.

Flavour: Holy moly. This is great coz it feels like we’re getting our daily serve of fruit while having a beer! The mango, passionfruit and dragonfruit tastes so fresh and sweet while this delicate line of acidity provides the right amount of sourness to balance. It all glides so effortlessly into a clean and fruity finish. Good duration on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Light on, mineraly and super sessional. Mild-moderate body and the 4.2% ABV is perfect for what it is.

Overall: Loved it. Even on this late winters’ day it went down an absolute treat. We could only imagine how much better it could be on a hot summers arvo. Cracking drop.
