Poured a hazy golden orange into a pint glass, with a finger of white head, decent carbonation, and fair lacing. The smell certainly revealed the passion fruit within, with some biscuit and lemon as well; a rare but enticing mix. (On the record, I hate fruit beers, but the smell of this one was intriguing.) The taste was a nice balance of biscuit and lemon, a subtle passion fruit/mango undertone throughout, until the finish, where a more intense passion fruitiness punctuated the dryness. I was pleasantly surprised. The mouthfeel was a little on the thin side, but nicely balanced with a not-that-abundant amount of carbonation...at least not as abundant as I was led to believe from the appearance. You'll probably never catch me saying this again, but I certainly would session this beer. Maybe the rarity of the passion fruit flavor brainwashed me.
Serving type: on-tap
