Bistro Grande Ambrosia - Pineapple, Tangerine, Coconut and Marshmallow
Energy City Brewing
A Note on This Beer
In Greek, ‘ambrosia’ literally means ‘immortality,’ and describes the foods of the ancient gods.
I think the brewers at Energy City had that definition in mind when they created today’s Bistro Grande Ambrosia - Pineapple, Tangerine, Coconut, and Marshmallow. It tastes like something Zeus would drink while sitting atop Mount Olympus!
Fortunately, you don’t have to be an ancient thunder-god to get a taste of this Ambrosia. The Energy City crew made it for folks right here on earth! To do it, they crafted a tart, Berliner Weisse-style brew with heaps of real coconut and marshmallows. Then, they cranked up the flavors with huge additions of real tangy tangerine and tropical pineapple!
All those delicious ingredients come through loud and clear in the finished product. It’s like a tropical fruit smoothie with a ribbon of creamy marshmallow running all the way through it.
One sip, and you might feel like pulling on a toga and tossing some lightning bolts around.

Wish I had more
ENERGY CITY ALL DAYYY
Creamy, sweet, smooth! Almost forgot I was drinking a beer lol
I always taste everything this brewery advertised. Extremely delicious. You can’t even tell it’s 8%. These guys should be giving out lessons to other brewers aiming for strong and deliciously thick and flavorful beers.
Didnt like the after taste much, but still pretty good
Words cannot do this justice. If you've ever had ambrosia fruit salad, this is it in weisse form. Delicious, delicious delicious. Fruits don't overpower each other and the marshmallow gives it the perfect amount of sweetness. Have yet to taste anything less than amazing from Energy City!
Coconut tangerine cream. I think anyone who didnt enjoy this beer or didnt get all of the flavor forgot to palm roll it! Tasting notes are accurate and its the perfect dessert. Absolutely loved it and wish i bought more!
Wife loved it. Tastes exactly like ambrosia
Like drinking melted sorbet. Supremely delicious. Smooth like creamsicle.
Wish I got more than one.
Ambrosia to a T
Loved it! But I love all ECB treats
Taste exactly as what your brain thinks of. Absolutely amazing taste.
Wow. This beer is everything I hoped it would be. I had an ambrosia beer from another brewery and it paled in comparison to this. So fruity and juicy and delicious. Like a morning smoothie.
Tastes as advertised: ambrosia. Sweet. Tasty.
Good flavor and hides the 8 ABV well, but turns into nothing more than a flat, thick soda within a few minutes.
Loved it. I was looking for a little sweetness and got it. They nailed all flavors as advertised, which is not all that common.
Ambrosia is one of my favorites!! Really good flavors!
Tastes exactly like ambrosia salad - this is a DESSERT beer and should be sipped a extremely sweet.
It’s the perfect dessert beer
Now this one right here I could drink all damn day, sheesh damn near forever.
I was particularly excited about this one. It was too much for me though. The flavor was intense and overbearing.
Not tart at all- it felt more rounded in sweetness and marshmallow
Like a tangerine pina calada
Super awesome and unique desert beer. You probably don’t want more then 8oz so have a friend near by.
Do you want a fruit cocktail that drinks like a beer? This is it. Very fruit forward, sweet, ambrosia is an apt name for it. I like fruit juice more than I like beer, so this is perfect for me.
Exactly like drinking an ambrosia salad!!
Tastes exactly like an ambrosia salad made into drink form. It is juice/smoothie/almost nitro like.. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! My new favorite.
Amazing tasting beer
Well rounded and smooth
Tastes like a watered down ambrosia salad with a bit of a sour after bite. Not the best from energy.
I thought it was tasty. I pounded two and felt healthy AF but no buzz. Haha. It’s like a tropical smoothie. Highly recommend a try.
Amazing pineapple/coconut flavor, blends perfectly.
Just not a fan I guess.
This is amazing.... really taste like the dessert... sweet but not too sweet has kind of the perfect sweetness for a dessert beer almost like a beer cooler... but then you realize it’s 8% alcohol and you don’t even taste it... I’m gonna have to try all their beers now LOL
So smooth. Love how one can taste all the fruit flavors. Just perfect.
Straight 5 stars from me and my boys!!!!
I want this every morning fir breakfast!
Best for breakfast brews
Wow! Really good.
Fruit salad in a beer lol
Awesome fruit forward flavors with a hint of sweet marshmallow. The flavors are well balanced.
Very sweet. Tastes just like grandma's summer picnic salad.
Just ridiculously good.
Just phenomenal in all aspects. 10/10
Like ambrosia in a can. Loved it.
Absolutely delectable. Mind blowing that this beer has an 8 % ABV. It is luscious and fruity and bursting with flavor. The up front pineapple and tangerine are well balanced out by the creaminess from the coconut and marshmallow. Two Thumbs Up!
Incredible. I’ve never drank a beer that so closely resembles the flavor of what you are supposed to be drinking. Brings me back to my childhood. Amazing beer
Definitely tastes like the ambrosia fruit salad my mon makes! Tastes of pineapple and coconut!
IMO, overly sweet. I’m going to save other can fir summer and freeze it, might be more enjoyable as a slushy. IG @ilikeitsour
This is a sweet baby with very discernible notes of tangerine and pineapple and a coconut finish.
Had no idea what to expect on this one... my first beer that was not a “beer”... bud light, corona ...etc... was a Weisse so I knew it would be good just wasn’t sure what to expect given my taste in beer has very much evolved. Let me tell you! Upon smelling this.... it was like being transported to a beach! It smelled like a pina colada. And then I tasted it.... great job, seriously! Smooth, fruity, you can taste every hint of flavor that it lists. The fruit they add gives it an amazing kick!
Really different, in a good way. Tasted very much like ambrosia and I got a lot of great pineapple flavor
It tastes exactly like ambrosia. Pretty amazing.
Literally liquid ambrosia.
A little coconut heavy for my liking but overall good taste and mouthfeel.
Sweet tasting, all fruit flavors come through
Just like ambrosia salad
Very balanced of all flavors in this can! I'm never disappointed with Energy City! So very delicious!
If vodka was involved they hit it spot on!
The marshmallow background of this beer matches the fruitiness perfectly
This was like a pina colada! So tasty!
Heavy vanilla flavor can barely taste the tangerine.
It's perfect taste! My wife really love it.
Tastes like a toasted pina colada. Amazing flavor, well balanced. Wish we could order more.
Never had a dessert brew before. Pretty good!
Like a yummy painkiller
If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, look no further! This sweet beer is chock full of pineapple and coconut, with a little extra tang from the tangerine and a velvety smooth mouth-feel to boot. Almost too sweet for my taste, but a great drink nonetheless!
This was delicious
Loved this one!!
Mostly pineapple with a hint of coconut in the nose. Flavor is just an incredible hit of sweet, tropical, coconutty, marshmallowy deliciousness. Tastes exactly like the ambrosia grandma would’ve made if she had ever made ambrosia. I love it.
Dessert in a can, but not too sweet. One is enough.
This was just outstanding
Grandma's fruit salad in a can...only boozy
Good Weisse. Very pulpy
It’s like vacation in a can. Strong pineapple and coconut flavor. Delicious!
Very Creamy coconut
Sweet, refreshing, fruity
This was a good one. Really liked the coconut with the marshmallow in this
Tastes like ambrosia.. Pretty sweet though
Pina colada fabulous that adds marshmallow to the finish. If you like these dessert beers, this one is great !
I really liked the slight tart with sweet marshmallow finish.
Alas, I forgot to rate when I drank it, but I remember it was pretty sweet and thick. A great dessert beer!
Everything it’s supposed to be. Rich full and sweet. A little too sickly sweet for my taste. Good but not my favorite bistro grande I’ve had
Tastes exactly like ambrosia salad. By far, my absolute favorite.
Not as light as I wanted and pretty sweet. The flavor is there at some point in the middle after the initial sweetness.
Delightful. Reminds me of a pina colada. I taste pineapple, coconut, and marshmallow.
Way too sweet.
Delicious pineapple and marshmallow flavor
All Energy City beers are excellent.
So ambrosia! My wife is not a beer drinker and really liked it.
Hell yes buy this!
A drink befitting of its name.
solid 5 ! great flavor combo and spot on with them !
This ambrosia is divine and definitely inspired by the gods. Like it better than the one with cherry.
Easily the favorite out of my first crate. Smooth and sweet. It was like I was having just dessert.
Flavor bliss! Tastes exactly what you expect based on the adjuncts. Very impressed.
I’m not a huge beer drinker, but this one was super delicious. Had it after a dinner and it just has a fantastic flavor and smooth finish. Even for someone who isn’t really into drinking I found it amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants that nice fruity taste.
Strong pineapple on the front, and sweet marshmallow on the back. Amazing beer!
They manage to highlight each component, but still balance them perfectly. Tastes like old school ambrosia dessert. Awesome!
Tastes just like the description. Really like their stuff.
I am FLOORED. Smells and tastes like Ambrosia. This is the second time I’ve had an Energy City brew. These guys know what they are doing. Crisp start and finish too. well done!
Perfection in a glass! Taste just like an Marshmallow heavy Ambrosia Salad. It might be the first beer I've had where Marshmallow is upfront and just as present throughout a sip as the other flavors. The Tangerine and Pineapple blend really well together and the Coconut adds a nice buttery touch to round everything out. Wish I could have bought more!
Definitely sweet but has a good tangerine after taste
It’s like beer meets mimosas, ahhh it’s like brunch in a can! Can not go wrong with this beer!!
I was expecting subtle flavor with this beer, but I got fireworks of tangerine and pineapple! Way too sweet for my taste.
I felt immortal alright
Such strong notes of coconut really come in strong with the creamy marshmellow finish. The pineapple and tangerine go together great
Everything about this one was perfect, from spot on pineapple and coconut taste to slight sour bite. Marshmallow flavor a little harder to pick up but clear presence on nose and overall smoothed everything out. Really got the tangerine with aftertaste.
Spot on, ambrosia in a glass straight up.
Fake marshmallow taste
