The Passion Fruit Prussia is our non-traditional look at the classic Berliner Weisse style. Brewed with a generous amount of passion fruit, this beer pours golden in color with a nice tart finish. A perfect compliment to the summer heat.

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. (309 characters)

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. (486 characters)

This was nice, A little to tart, I can feel it on the teeth. Fruit is a present but could use a boost. Over all very nice berliner. (131 characters)

This was the first can of my four pack, so I will update with final judgment after those, but this was not the greatest. I am not getting any of the passion fruit here. I don't taste the flavor of it and there is no hint of sweetness from it either. This is just pure sour and tart. If it had a little sweetness to offset it, it would be much better. It needs that balance of something else to counteract the sour. Otherwise it falls flat as a one note flavor profile.

Would not purchase again. (495 characters)

I tried to chase this one down in cans all over St. Louis. It is no wonder it sold out in a matter of days. i was lucky enough to get a growler fill at the brewery on the 4th of July. A very light golden wheat colored body hosts an off white quick fading head that only reaches about a half inch before it fades to just a skim. nose is oft but very consistent and full whit tones of pineapple, passion fruit and rich resiny sour notes. Very tart up front as I take first sip. Dry and stone sour on the tongue. This beer makes you pucker sip after sip. I am really impressed with how full the tongue twing and nice sour feel keeps the mouth excited. Refreshing and wonderfully drinkable for a sour brew. (711 characters)

12 oz can. Hazy, pale straw colored body. No head/lace/retention. Notes of lactic acid, melon, and wheat. Flavor is tart wheat, lemon and a distinct lactic acid note. The passion fruit seems lost on this beer. Mouth feel is bubbly. Decent, but nothing special. (260 characters)

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! (299 characters)
