Paletas Tamarindo | 5 Rabbit Cervecería
Style: Pale Wheat Ale - American
Description: What captures the fun of summer better than the ding-ding-ding of the popsicle cart and the cool rich of fruity fun, and the joyful brain freeze offered by these simple treats? Paletas means popsicle in Spanish, and the versions most popular in the Latin American community are made with frozen fruit juice in a wide variety of tropical varieties. We thought this would be a perfect inspiration for a line a summer beers. But these are not kiddie treats. In addition to pure, high-quality fruit pulp, we use number of delicious spices and other flavors that build on the fruits, adding complexity and depth. They'll still a lot of fun, and amazingly quaffable, only 3.5% ABV. A large proportion of wheat gives them a smooth, creamy mouth-feel. There’s really never been anything like them. Paletas are meant as summer refreshers—a more sophisticated alternative to one-dimensional shandies and radlers. We’re brewing them as a series, each one different, and when one’s gone, it’s gone. We brew the next one. At the end of summer, they vanish until next year. We hope never to repeat ourselves. This paleta features Tamarind.
