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.

From a can at the Burning Can Festival (NC)

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.

"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.
