375mL bottle poured into a stemmed chalice/tulip blend from Goose Island. Not sure what I'd call this glassware.

A- Fizzy head (and sound), trickling carbonation and bubbliness like a champagne, and a golden body with a touch of haze. 4.75

S- Man, there's some pungent passionfruit aroma here, but it's also pretty pissy and baby-diaperish. Not an attractive smelling beer, really. 2.5

T- Taste veers back in the right direction. Tart fruitiness reminds me of Sweet Tarts and the passionfruit flavor is on display, hitting with a pungent, stickiness as well as a tart bite. Lemon and a zesty flavor like light grapefruit also come into the fold. After I drank the beer down a bit, I poured the bottom of the bottle with the cloudy yeast in and this actually added more flavor to the beer. The passionfruit is more pronounced and slightly sweeter. 4.25

M- This drinks nicely. Light-bodied and light- to medium-carbonation with a potent tartness that isn't overwhelming. This combination makes each sip a bit of lip-puckerer but with a fullness and refresh that are thirst-quenching before completely drying out the palate. The feel is probably the highlight of this beer. 4.5

Aside from the offensive nose, this a great beer. A lovely fruit flavor and superb drinkability.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow body. Small white head and a medium collar.

Smell - Musty yeastiness. Grainy malt. A deep breath yields passion fruit, but it isn't as apparent as the Blueberry presence in the other Petite Sour.

Taste - Grain is strong. Wheat. Tart, but not that strong on the passionfruit. The passionfruit comes out a little more in the back end, though.

Mouthfeel - Moderate tartness, never quite sour. Medium carbonation and pretty light.

Overall - Nowhere near as good or fruity as the Blueberry Petite Sour.
