Modern Times Fortunate Islands with Grapefruit Zest
Fortunate Islands with Grapefruit Zest from Modern times is a hoppy and refreshing wheat beer with a ton of grapefruit flavor, thanks to the grapefruit zest used in this delicious limited release. With the easy-drinking qualities of a wheat beer, the citrusy notes of grapefruit, and just the right amount of hoppiness, this beer is nicely balanced and well crafted – oh and seriously tasty.
It’s a perfect beer for the summer (or any time!), bringing great hop and citrus flavor and with a drinkability that begs for a warm poolside. The grapefruit flavor is really pronounced due to the labor intensive use of the grapefruit zest, and blends nicely with the other flavors that Fortunate Islands offers. Modern Times describes the process of peeling the grapefruit zest as “hand-peeling a zillion goddamn grapefruits and adding only the oily skin to the beer. It’s insanely labor intensive, but the poppin’, fresh grapefruit character can’t be beat” – you can read more about it on their website here. We certainly appreciate all the hard work for the rush of grapefruit flavor that comes from this refreshing and flavorful beer.
