Poured from a bottle for our Snozzberry tasting, into a Jester King wine glass.
Appearance: First things first, Abbbp’s glass is significantly darker than mine. More of an amber, mines more yellow. Hazy, and the white, one-finger head dissipates fast on both of ours. I’m imagining the darkness is because his was poured second and he got more of the yeast and sediment.
Smell: Loads of passionfruit. Hints of salt, and definitely sour in a Berliner type way. Some ripe banana flavors are mixing in with the passionfruit too.
Taste: Passionfruit is there, but much less so than in the nose. That mustiness of the passionfruit though works wonderfully with the sourness of the base beer, which does have a slight saltiness to it. Not getting any guava, but I’ve got no problems with passionfruit being the main fruit flavor here. Maybe a little bit of the banana I got from the nose. This is frickin delicious. Absolutely top notch.
Mouthfeel: Very prickly carb, almost like soda, and lingers for a while. Kinda sticky.
Overall: Delicious. One of the best sours I’ve ever had. Would love to try more Funky Buddha now, having had this. Just fantastic.

Drank on-tap at Lord Hobo, Cambridge, MA
Served in a cervoise
Super cloudy, yellow ochre appearance. The lack of a head made the liquid appear rather dull.
The aroma however was outstanding and super unique. On the first whiff, apricot nectar immediately came to mind. Lots of sweet mango as well. Perhaps some peach notes too. Slightly wheaty and tart. A salty, mineral-like quality was also detectible.
Like the nose, the flavor profile was really interesting. The apricot notes were apparent here as well, and they were joined by a number of tart, tropical fruit flavors. Lots of sweet and tangy passionfruit. Some mango. Hints of lemon and wheat came through in the center. The beer finished salty and rather sour.
The mouthfeel was pretty non-descript. The beer was light on the palate with a spritzy, fairly aggressive effervescence.
Funky Buddha makes a number of outstanding, fruit-infused sour beers, and this one is perhaps my favorite. I really wish I had easy access to this amazingly tasty and refreshing warm weather treat.

Not super familiar with goses, but this one is salty as hell and I like it. Pale straw color, no head. The smell is all passionfruit and berry delight. It's awesome. Taste is all salt up front, berries in the middle and finishes tartly crisp. On the drier side, really wants you to take another sip. Overall, I could see myself drinking a shit load of this in the summer. If you can't find this anywhere and want to get a taste of it, try a Chobani Passionfruit Greet Yogurt. Basically the same taste, but with salt.

The beer comes in a light yellow color.
The aroma is absolutely brilliant. Fresh passion fruit, bright lemon peel, guava.
The flavor follows with those fruits in the front, although not as brilliant. Extremely tropical with peaches, and even a lemon tartness. The beer has lots of similarities with a Berliner weisse because of the tart qualities and almost absence of salinity that the style is known for.
Super refreshing and ridiculously fruit forward. The best gose I’ve had. Funky Buddha aromatically is the best brewery in the world.
