⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
T: Passionfruit. Passionfruit. Passionfruit. Lemon-like acetic notes. Yoghurt-like lacto. Faint grass. Pungent-ish woody spice toward the back.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
M: Medium-light bodied. Spritzy, vibrant carbonation. Crisp. Refreshing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
O: This is the perfect Sunday afternoon beer. Straight up passionfruit and yoghurt on all accounts, more Crisp than Coco, dry and refreshing through and through. I love how straight-forward Breakside is with all their creations, they just get straight down to brass tacks, no fuss, no muss. I'd take this over a wild fermented, dry-hopped, double barrel, kettle-soured Berliner Weisse any day; they need to make this in 12oz cans and sell them in 6-pk format, stat.

The nose is great, strong with Passionfruit as expected. Beer pours with a slight head that maintains itself while drinking. Body and finish are smooth and delightful. Great beer I bought off the shelf at a local market. Would recommend.

Bright 24k gold, clean and clear with a bubbly white foam that descends like a champagne.

Fruit Roll-Up aroma, peaches and apricots with a dash of acidic sourness.

As advertised, this taste like straight passion fruit juice. Tart, and sweet passion fruit.

Light bodied, crisp and tart, but not too tart. An easy drinking and refreshing beer all around.

No wonder this is a decorated beer. It hits all the marks for a light and fruity, tart and summer heat quenching beer.

Cheers.
