Thanks to Koisan for bringing this amazing beer over tonight for our bottle share.

A: pours an incredibly unique yellow orange juice color. Thick looking like fresh squeezed juice with a slightly off white one and half inch head.

S: starfruit, passionfruit and maybe slight mango. Tons of topical fruits. Never smelled a beer like this.

T: wow. Almost like passionfruit juices with a Weiss twist. So drinkable and perfect. Slight sour brett notes to balance the sweetness.

M: thick but not heavy so its very drinkable, just like fresh squeezed juice. Super refreshing. It really defines miami and latin juice scene.

Overall this is an amazing brew that truly shows why he hopefully will open a brewery soon. So lucky to drink this jewel of a beer. Thanks koisan!

Draft at Cigar City during Hunahpu Day 2012.

Pours a cloudy, bright golden yellow color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.

The aroma of this beer is pretty remarkable. It's just bursting with fresh tropical fruit notes while being countered by lactic funk, bready yeast and citrus. Lots of mango, papaya, pineapple and other tropical fruits but it still smells like a Berliner. A decent amount of earthy funk, wheat/bread and a touch of citrus balance things out.

Medium bodied with an explosion of tropical fruit notes that linger over subtle funk and acidity into a dry finish. Similarly to the aroma, there is a ton of amazing tropical fruit flavor but it still has the qualities of a berlinerweisse. A bit sweet perhaps but there is still some wheat/bready yeast flavor along with subtle acidity and lactic funk countering the fruit notes. Refreshing and delicious.

Serving type: on-tap
