Hazy light orange, small string of foam.
Smells like natural tropical fruit juice, unsugared. Some yogurt with peach bits, too. No sour notes yet.
Peach and mango juice, bubblegumy, with hints of banana and maracuja. A small lemon zest bite, but bigger lactic tartness. Dry finish, with just a soft sweetness in the middle (not the sugary kind).
Aftertaste has plenty of fragrant fruitiness.
Awesomely refreshing sour ale, and a lot of fruitiness. Tho juuust a bit "artificial", maybe, even if it's not the case.

My bottle says "Tropic Punch Ale" but seems to be the exact same beer.

Foggy golden hue below a small, creamy head. Aroma is ridiculously fruity: huge fresh peach juice presence followed by passion fruit yogurt and a bit of mango. Flavor is equally fruity, but with a notable sharp acidity that lets you know it isn't just a $5 bottle of juice. Stone fruit, pineapple gummy bears, sour apple, and lemon/lime citrus. Some lingering grain on the back end is a welcome addition, but it just can't compete with the fruit. Crazy tropical all around. Brisk, tingly carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. I almost don't know how to rate this - very tasty juicy freshness, though it ends up being quite one-note. If you like tropical fruit juice, it's a no-brainer.

Pours a hazy gold with a white head that leaves quickly and without a trace. The beer has a fresh peach aroma with the passion fruit being the next noticeable scent. There is a bright acidity in the aroma with the faintest hint of sweetness. The beer tastes like fresh peaches, nectarines, passion fruit and mango with a pleasing sourness. There is not much sweetness or bitterness in this one. This is a quite refreshing and tasty beer.

Hazy yellow color with almost no head. Intense tropical fruit aroma, mango and papaya come to my mind. Taste is sour and fruity, like a lemonade with tropical fruit juice added. Carbonation is on the high side and body is light and dry. Really easy to drink and refreshing.

The liquid is somewhat hazy, the colour brigt gold-yellow (4 EBC). The low white head disappears rather quickly.

The smell is sweet-sour and very fruity. Intensive notes of apricots, peaches, pineapples, mango (lots of it) and tart passion fruit. Cucumber and minerals in the background.

The taste is quite thick with more sweet-sour notes of apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, mango and cumquat. The sweetness fades leaving room for tart yet smooth sourness. Medium body. The aftertaste is more... unripe with tart notes of mango and passion fruit. Some quickly passing harsh flour-flavours. The ling finish is semi-sweet with distinct notes of passion fruit.

The carbonation is light, yet the large bubbles are sharp and refreshing. The liquid is a little thick (like a fruit juice) and quite harsh.

Lots and lots of exotic fruit flavours in this stronger Berliner Weisse.

Hazy, yellow-orange, beer with a huge, three finger high, white head thad dissapears pretty fast.

Nose: Sourcream, tropical fruit, rhubarb, citrus, vanilla and biscuit.
Taste: What is this? I haven't tried anything liki this before! This is fun! Tart, orange, lemon, sourcream, fruity hops, lime, apricot and grass.
Body: Light to medium body. Medium to low carbonation. Sour, tart. It's like sour candy!

I dont know how to react to this! A part of me loves it and another part say NO!

Well i'ts really fun to try and it's refreshing but the summer is over in Sweden so I don't think I will by anoter bottle...
