Meet Fruition

Have you seen an Ommegang beer with a tropically pink label on the shelves lately? That’s Fruition, a brand new, year-round offering that’s been moving out from the brewery as the warm weather has been moving in. And on this very first day of summer, we’re excited to share all the details with you and tell you where to find it.

Fruition is a refreshing 5.3% ABV dry-hopped wheat ale that begins with our award-winning Witte as the base beer and is then given a tropical twist with the addition of mango, kiwi, and passion fruit juices. The result is a slightly tart and fruity, hop-forward beer that’s exceptionally drinkable. It’s the perfect beer to pair with summer.

Brewmaster Phil Leinhart says: “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.”

Brewed with malted and unmalted wheat and oat flakes, and spiced with sweet orange peel and coriander, Fruition is fermented with mango, kiwi, and passion fruit juices then dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade hops.

Fruition pours a pale straw color with moderate haziness and a fluffy white head. Tropical fruit and citrus aromas dominate the nose and the flavor follows suit with tart tropical fruit and citrus up front, followed by a smooth mouthfeel with a medium body. The finish is resoundingly dry with nice effervescence. The dryness and acidity of Fruition make it a perfect beer to pair with all manner of cheeses, particularly cheeses with some funk. The effervescence also makes this beer a great pairing with saltier foods – try Fruition with Belgian frites or chicken & waffles.

Fruition is available now in 12 oz. six-packs and on draft in the following states: AL, AR, AZ, CA, CT, CO, DE, FL, GA, IL, KS, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, NC, ND, NE, NJ, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VI, VT, WA, WI, and Washington D.C. You can use our beer finder to search for retailers near your zip code.

      Huh! It’s possible one of our new guides didn’t realize that it’s already in stores. We’ll be sure to pass this along to the tour manager so he can share with his staff. Let us know if you need help finding Fruition.
