Creative Original Music Adelaide (COMA) is a not for profit organisation that raises the profile of original music in Adelaide. They host regular events at The Wheaty on the first and third Monday of every month, racking up an impressive 700 performances at the one establishment at time of writing. Last year’s collaboration saw them create Rizzocato, with a slightly different version now continuing as part of the Wheaty Brewing Corps core range. Their 2018 collab saw them create a mango sour saison.
You are instantly transported to The Tropics as the beer is being poured, with huge tropical fruit aromas, largely from the mango, hitting you first. Coma Chameleon was soured over a few days, using bucketloads of natural Greek yoghurt to provide the lactobacillus, with 30kgs of mango and some lime zest also added. The first sip has a decent sour kick, enough to make your eyelids flutter a little and nostrils twitch. The fresh mango powers through the tastebuds, retaining the sour and fruit characteristics to give the drinker an experience that's tangy and tropical.
