On draft multiple times. Bright lighter purplish body with a dark pink hue. Tons of tropical fruit, basically tastes like a mildly tart fruit punch, kool-aid even. It's perhaps a bit artificial tasting. Lemon, light wheat, but otherwise dominated by the fruit. Medium bodied, incredibly refreshing, good carbonation.

On tap at Wakefest. Bright pink body. Smells of sweet berry fruitiness and passion fruit acidity. Tastes of passion fruit with a light tartness. I get the mango here along with some sweetness. Light body. It's tart fruit juice and it's bright pink. Maybe I'm jaded.

i dont believe i have had a sour from these guys before this one, and what an ambitious brew this is, apparently kettle soured, and quite professionally i might add, but thats really the least exciting element in this drink! its pink like lipstick, neon and intense from the dragon fruit, its also spiked with mango and passion fruit, and you sure get all of that in the nose, this is more like an umbrella drink at a vegas pool than it is a beer, but it has my attention right away. its so pink its crazy, looks like something i remember having at j wakefield, but its a foggy memory. i like the nose here, tart from the fruit and the very clean lacto, sort of minimal in its bacterial character, but the established acidity is just right for the sweet fruit, and the tartness of the passion fruit is highlighted here too. the flavor is almost like candy, the very distinctive juicy dragon fruit leading the way well ahead of the other fruits, but i get the sweetness of the mango and a very natural passion fruit thing too. long flavor with all this fruit, and the acid cant quite cut the sweetness all the way, but it tries, and there is some semblance of balance in all this weirdness. so tropical and unique, a great showcase of these fruits and something pretty exciting really. i see why folks are so excited about these guys...

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a howler on April 3, 2018. Join the dragon in a dance to celebrate this unique kettle sour, blended with dragon fruit, mango and passion fruit puree. Raise a glass, dance the fandango and celebrate the magic of these tropical fruits. Recommended.

Draft at TG taproom. Quite a stunning magenta, raspberry color with no foam head. Unmistakable dragon fruit, passion fruit and mango aroma which is also very abundant in the taste as well. Very fruity sweet (like juice) but sourness does help offset that a bit. Not overly sour in general.

Fruit fruit fruit with perfect amount of sour. Great frothy white head and full mouth feel. The tropical fruit tastes and smells are strong. You get your moneys worth!

Bright red-pink with a light, white persistent fizz. The body is very nearly neon, like some of those we won't mention that we've seen coming out of the Southeast for some time.

Dragon fruit. Passionfruit. Guava. Watermelon Kool-Aid. The aroma is so bright and clean and refreshing it's just begging for a thirsty newcomer.

Tart and refreshing, the taste is the same as the smell with added strawberry notes.

Light-medium body with a thin-moderate crisp and sweet carbonation, almost cola-like, with a semi-dry, slightly sticky finish.

this beer looks absolutely refreshing on a hot August day. Everything was done well for this kettle sour minus the nose. Holy shit did it smell awful! I watched several other people have the exact reaction after first sip and other sips beyond.
