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. (343 characters)

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! (402 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange body with a nice white head. Thick collar and great retention.

Smell - Lots of passionfruit. Wheat. More passionfruit.

Taste - Bright passionfruit. Lots of wheat. Kinda tart, but not as sour as the aroma implied. Simple beer, but tasty.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Nice berliner. The passionfruit aroma belied a much more intense beer that never materialized. (457 characters)

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. (469 characters)
