Prussia - Passion FruitPrussia - Passion Fruit
Notes: The Passion Fruit Prussia is our non-traditional look at the classic Berliner Weisse style. Brewed with a generous amount of passion fruit, this beer pours golden in color with a nice tart finish. A perfect compliment to the summer heat.

Pours a hazy opaque yellow. Momentarily there was a thin white head that almost immediately disappeared.

Smell is tart, slightly fruity, lots of lemon zest coming through. Undertones of passion fruit also noted.

Taste is mildly tart, up front. Notes of lemon zest, orange zest, bit of wheat and yeast notes coming through. the backend produces a bit more tartness followed by a strong passionfruit aftertaste. Interesting that the passionfruit comes through mostly on the aftertaste and not as much up front.

Feel is nice, maybe a bit thin. Slight pucker from the tart. Really dry finish is very nice with the tartness. Mild carbonation.

Overall a nice offering with a unique twist on the style while not straying too far from it.

2 drafts in a Chimay goblet at the "South of 80" event at Green Lady.

Pale pastel orange, with a head of creamy white foam with a velvety surface texture.

Aroma is bursting with fruity tropical passionfruit. Really intense and enjoyable.

Taste was similarly fruity, with a juicy tartness and an undercurrent of wheat. Light and extremely easy drinking, especially considering the abv. Was reaching my limit, and decided to close the night out with another one of these. Fantastic.

Looks like lemonade. Smells like a nice funky / hoppy sour. Taste is tart and funky with the fruit coming through as well. Sourness is light but seems a tad high on acidity. This is a decent beer for this style. I enjoyed it much.

"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!

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.

Pours the color of ginger ale. This effervescent offering has over a finger of white head. The nose has notes of sour fruit. The flavor follows the nose but I don't particularly get the essence of passion fruit.
