On tap at the brewery's grand opening. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy orange yellow. No head. Just a thin collar.

Smell - Excellent fruit aroma. Dominating passionfruit. Incredibly fruity. Nothing else to it besides fruit and acidity.

Taste - Great fruit flavor right up front. Tons of passionfruit. Behind it is the seemingly standard Buddha grain and weird lemon chemical flavor. The passionfruit does an excellent job of covering the Thera Flu flavor, but it still comes out.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation. That off flavor is almost completely covered, but it rears its ugly head after the passionfruit dies down.

Overall - It's gotta be the base berliner giving it that flavor. Something is off, but so many great flavors in this otherwise.

What an awesome beer. Has the typical cloudy straw-colored Berliner appearance. The nose is straight passionfruit at first; fresh ripe passionfruit. It's damn impressive. Citrusy and lactic notes pop out as it warms, along with a bit of wheat. The palate offers more of the same, with a huge, bright passionfruit flavor that's remarkably three-dimensional. Citric lactic sourness are at a pleasant moderate level. The beer finishes clean with a touch of grain and yogurt. Exceptionally tasty stuff.

On-tap at FB 7/20, served in tulip

A: Pours a super cloudy beige color with a small white cap. Looks like grapefruit juice

S: Tart and ripe passionfruit dominates the nose. Super acidic, this will be sour!

T: Passionfruit, super sour passionfruit. Mouth puckering sourness

MF/O: Super tart and a little dry. Lower carbonation and a good feel to it. Heartburn central. One of the most sour beers I've consumed, but also very delicious.
