look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A- Can into a glass with a very pale yellow body and a one finger, fizzy white cap. The head is short lived and dies out to nothing, perhaps a hint of big acidity? Lacing is no where to be found.

S- Ripe and sour from both the fermentation and the added passionfruit. The lactic acid is off the charts and it is reminiscent of a Berliner with a big tart aroma leading into the added fruit. Lactic, lemons, whole cracked grains and passionfruit; simple and effective.

T- At least in the first few sips not nearly as tart as the aroma suggested. The passionfruit is also pushed just a bit aside, kind of tasting watered down. Lacks the depth the aroma had as there are just hints of lactic ferment, bread, whole grains, passionfruit and tartness. Just has this diluted feeling.

MF- Light bodied with just a touch of a foamy texture. Comes off as thin and approaching seltzer/soda consistency with the lack of oomph and the high end carbonation. Ends with a medium tartness lingering.

The aroma is enticing but the flavor just doesn't live up to it and the body comes off just a bit thin. Somehow just feels like a diluted passionfruit Berliner, not a lot of strength in the flavor.

Poured golden and fairly hazy, with a head that faded pretty quickly, nothing really left behind. Smelled and tasted tart, with a particular fruitiness that did not sit well with me. Had a nice carbonation but left a lingering tartness in the mouth that I would usually enjoy but did not sit right. I'd try again to see if it's my taste buds, maybe I'm just not a fan of passionfruits.

Very pale yellow with a little fog. A fairly aggressive pour will yield A finger thick white head. In-your-face passion fruit nose. Light carbonation. Not much to look at, but the passion fruit was a smart choice. It plays out very well. Slight tartness. I like it.

12 oz can. Cloudy pale straw yellow pour, with a white head. Lots of fresh passion fruit, very tart, lemon, fruity, grain, and some citrus. Tasty and refreshing.

Look is an opaque lemon lime yellow with 1/2 finger of bright white head.

Aroma is tart passion fruit. Maybe some grain as well.

Taste follows nose. Tart passion fruit with some bready/grain on the backend.

Feel is clean and crisp. Carb is moderately high.

Overall a nice tart fruited ale. Perfect on a hot day. Definately crushable.

Pours with a pale golden body topped with a fine white head. Served ice cold.
Robust tart and fruity flavor. Very tasty with moderate to high tartness.

12oz can, served in a pint glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow body, slight straw, one finger thick white head, good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is heavy passion fruit, slight grain, lemon, mild acetic tartness, a bit of yogurt. Flavour is also heavy on the passion fruit, light acetic acidity, touch of lactate, lemon, light grain. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, crisp, refreshing and perfect for a hot day in the backyard.
