Light golden hued with significant haziness. A trace of thin white head covers the majority of the top of the beer. Aroma of pale wheat and tropical passion fruit is present. Think pineapple and mango in the fruit arena and is definitely more on the tart end. The mouth is light and yet moderately carbonated.

2 drafts in a Chimay goblet at the "South of 80" event at Green Lady.

Pale pastel orange, with a head of creamy white foam with a velvety surface texture.

Aroma is bursting with fruity tropical passionfruit. Really intense and enjoyable.

Taste was similarly fruity, with a juicy tartness and an undercurrent of wheat. Light and extremely easy drinking, especially considering the abv. Was reaching my limit, and decided to close the night out with another one of these. Fantastic.

What can I say? 4 Hands knocks it out of the park again. This beer is just tart enough, just fruity enough, and just light enough that at 3.5% ABV I could probably drink 100 of these in one setting. They just continue to impress over there. Kudos to this team of wonderful craftsmen and individuals!

Was randomly gifted a bottle of this from the owner of 4 Hands who happened to be visiting my favorite watering hole. I'm a big fan of regular Prussia, and the only other BW I've had that was infused with passion fruit was quite good, so I'm excited to crack this one open. Enjoyed out of a 22 oz brown bomber with artwork that makes me think of Little Shop of Horrors. Stamped on the side label is a bottling date of 9/2/14. Poured into a 16 oz nonic style tumbler glass.

Appearance (3.5) - Okay, not off to a great start--an aggressive pour is barely able to coax out the most fleeting of suds, giving this beer a flat appearance. A smattering of larger bubbles congregate around the sides of the glass, but dissipate fairly quickly, leaving no lacing. The body is a golden straw color with slight amber highlights and just a bit of haze.

Smell (4.0) - Now we're getting somewhere, as the aroma of this beer has all the checkpoints for a classic berliner weisse, but with the added fruitiness of the passion fruit. Light grain and bready wheat are clearly present, with faint lemony tartness and just a hint of that distinctive sour grain funk that always seems to be present in this style. There is also a fruit element that is slightly tart, but has a bit more heft to the aroma, a bit sweeter than the citric tartness that comes from the soured wort.

Taste (4.25) - Thankfully, the highlight of this beer happens to be the most important part. Now, I get a wonderful blend of rustic, but light wheat grain and lemony, citric tartness providing a base for a slightly tart, sweet notes of passion fruit, bringing to mind red plum and nectarine.

Mouthfeel (4.0) - Light bodied, with light carbonation, but surprisingly it's more than enough CO2 to provide the beer with a significant bit of effervescence--it doesn't feel at all flat on the tongue, in spite of my difficulty coaxing a head out of the beer. Slightly tart pinch on the tastebuds after swallowing.

Overall (4.0), even though this beer started suspect, the smell and taste definitely redeemed my initial impression and ended up turning me into a huge fan of the beer. I don't think much was produced, but I will certainly grab any bottle I happen to see sitting around on shelves moving forward. I would love it if they replaced the Ruby Red Prussia with this variant.
