look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

22oz bottle split between a pair of large snifters.

Pours slightly hazy, golden, with a small white head that fades fast and leaves little lacing. Lots of fine carbonation, some sediment. Smell is slightly fruity, yeasty, slightly lemon sour.

Taste is super sour. Lemon and tropical fruit.

Mouthfeel is creamy and rich. Overall, quite good.

Very Hazy amber with a bit of odd whitish sediment floating about. Decent off-white head
Good smell mixes a pronounced passion fruit component with baked bread.
The flavor is very tart and fruity ... Yum.
Refreshing and exceptionally tart and fruity
Light body, but not at all watery, with appropriate medium carbonation.
Near puckering level of tartness.

O: poor looking but excellent nonetheless!

A: yellow. Hazy. Lots of carbonation. Small white head. More bubbles than foam.

S: not much. The white of Watemelon rind.

T: passion fruit up front. Sour. A cross between pineapple and mango.

M: high carbonation. Light body. Dry. Sour.

O: great intro to sours for the newbies. This beer is not over the top on the sourness. It is definitely tasty and refreshing.
The sourness of the passion fruit melds well with the sourness of the lactic acid.

Originally had this at a tasting (thanks boozecamel ...I think), now I have a whole bottle for my face.

Appearance. Pours a hazy, rich gold colour with two fingers of white head.

Smell. Crackery sweet wheat and sweet, fresh papaya, guava, and peach. Not very familiar with passionfruit, so using descriptors I know. :-)

Taste. Sour guava! Lightly sweet ...just enough, actually. Some nice sour mango and other tropical fruits I cant place (yeah, that'd be the passionfruit ...the sexiest of all fruits, I reckon)

Mouthfeel. Light+ body, medium-strong carbonation.

Overall. REALLY enjoying this. I don't get nearly enough berliners and this one really hits the spot. Great job, Breakside!
