Brewed for the upcoming (hopefully) warm weather with a traditional Kolsch yeast, which lends toward a fruity and flavorful beer with a nose of floral and fruity hops and a soft malt body with a crisp, dry finish.

I had this back when I was living in Florida about a year or so ago. Wrote down some notes about it then but never got to post them. Anyway, I vaguely remember that it was a rather fruity beer with a tart and tangy taste. I thought it was pretty decent but it's not my kind of thing to have regularly.

Light gold in color with a heavy presence of carbonation bubbles. There’s a fingernail of off white on top. Light, soapy lacing is present. The aroma is of a passion fruit. I taste a hefty dose of passion fruit. The mouth is highly carbonated and crisp.

Just weird. Weak, metallic, bizarre aftertaste.

Having my second one of these on a hot summer day. Definitely a good summer beer. Nothing overpowering. Just enjoyable w a fruity smell and taste.

12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, tropical fruit and funky yeast. Body is medium and smooth. Herbal hops, wheat malt, passion fruit and funk fill the mouth. Finish is long and sour. Nice brew.

I’ve never been a flavored beer fan however I can say this was enjoyable. Smooth drink, nicely carbonated, refreshing brew.

A: Pours a golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Passion fruit up front along with some citrus and other tropical fruit

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the passion fruit and citrus and then slowly picks up some bready malt. Finishes with lingering bread and passion fruit

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid summer sipper that is very easy to drink and is super approachable. Worth a shot
