"Best by 12/19/15"; drank 10/25/15 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from a can into a glass.

Semi-opaque pale yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice, noisy bright white head which quickly dissipated; almost no lace.

Dry wheat, burnt corn & passionfruit notes in the nose.

Thin mouthfeel.

Dry passionfruit flavor; sweet up front with a dry, tart finish. Simple, flavorful & well balanced. A nice treat; hope I can nab one in the summer!

The aroma and taste follow each other pretty close. The aroma is a less prominent in comparison to the taste. Passion fruit is more subdued than I was expecting which is nice, and it balances the lemon zest character and the tartness of the beer very well. The sourness of the beer is easy to handle and very drinkable. Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and finishes on the drier side. I quite enjoyed this and it was perfect for a hot summer lounging in a pool.

Pours hazy, caution light yellow in color, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is sour mix, lemon, and slight passion fruit. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. Wanting more passion fruit taste, but makes for an above average and tart sipper.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. The tartness was very subtle, but the passion fruit was very abundant and I liked the mouthfeel. It was more of a saison to me, but still great.

passion fruit is really in vogue in these styles right now, it lends a cool tropicality that really brings out fruity southern hemisphere hops, and it provides a cool tartness as well that compliments the kettle soured lactic profile. more about the latter than the former in this one, as its not a particularly hoppy example of the style, but it is an awesome beer overall, super cool they have put it in cans! hazy orange in color, less murky and mucky than a lot of these, cleaned up a little bit, bubbly white head with fine retention. it smells like passion fruit first, tart and tangy and mouthwatering. the sourness is moderate, some solid acidity but not enough to turn the stomach, but plenty to be refreshing. notes of lemon and white malt tannins up front in the flavor, followed by a big swoosh of juicy passion fruit, a little more sweetness here than their needs to be, but a really pleasant and somewhat delicate flavor profile.good sourness to this, but not so much that it prevents me from having several of them. carbonation is on point, and despite there being a little residual sugar, i think the passion fruit flavor and feel is right on as well. really nice summer beer, one of the better fruited berliner styles going at the moment.
