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.

22 oz. bottle poured into a taster. Gose with tropical fruit.
Appearance - Flat hazy orange body. A couple floaties.
Smell - Tropical fruits. Passion fruit is strong. A little lemony. Smells very nice.
Taste - Much more lemon and grain. Minimal saltiness. Tropical fruits are less intense than the aroma, but still present. Sour, but not as intense as other Buddha Berliners.
Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Low carbonation. Drinkable.
Overall - Quite refreshing and flavorful. I was afraid it would taste like a Buddha berliner, but it has avoided the pitfalls from which they suffer.
