330 ml bottle, from the Norwegian importer. Cloudy pink colour, small pinkish off-white head. Aroma of lactic acid and stale berries. The flavour is better, moderately sour with notes of lactic acid, elderberries, passionfruit and hibiscus flowers.

Pours a murky orange, with very little head.

Smell is tart and slightly floral with notes of passionfruit, lemon and a hint of herbs.

Taste is tart with the passionfruit being very much the focal point. Some backing floral and citrus hints and a slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a good Berliner. Passionfruit is not my favorite, because it tends to overshadow anything else, but this is well balanced.

A 330ml bottle, bottled in June 2018 #170, and with a best before date of 20th June 2023. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A hazy light orange pink colour with a thin half finger white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing.

Aroma: Light tart and funk, guava, rhubarb, and passionfruit.

Taste: Tart, light sourness, passionfruit, guava, with hints of red berries and lemon peel, maybe some slight band aid.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Nice easy drinking Berliner Weisse with great fruit flavours. However, I didn’t get any floral character despite the addition of hibiscus flowers.

330ml bottle - not mentioned is how they get this one to be 'gluten-free', when it contains barley, rye, and oats. Must have gone the enzyme route.

This beer pours a clear, medium salmon amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and rather fizzy pale pink head, which leaves a few minor instances of cresting wave profile lace around the glass as it quickly sinks out of sight.

It smells of pungent passionfruit, some musty florals, gritty and grainy cereal malt, white saltine crackers, a bit of funky yeastiness, a hint of lactic acid, and very, very tame earthy, musky, and herbal green hop bitters. The taste is tart red fruit (passionfruit, sure, but also guava and bing cherry), grainy and crackery pale malt, subtly estery purple flowers, mild sour milky notes, and virtually no sense of hop bitterness at all, which isn't unexpected.

The carbonation is fairly active in its palate-surrounding frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and somehow smooth, with a strange glutinous creaminess evolving as things warm up a tad around here. It finishes off-dry, barely, as the sour fruity character eases off the gas, at least until the next sip.

Overall - wow! This is one pleasant and refreshingly drinkable version of the style, with the two guest ingredients expertly meshed into the base brew. Yeah, it's pretty puckering, but in a nice frooty way, so this observer is a-ok with that. Great stuff!

Enjoyed at the Copenhagen Beer Festival. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured a nice hazy straw hue with a good two finger head.

S - Aromas of enormous passion fruit notes. Like passion fruit paste really. Candy juice, little bit of hibiscus, almost tart guava like aroma as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with lovely tropical notes. More of the exotic passion fruit flavour along with some good creamy wheat.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit lowly carbonated, comes across as slightly thin.

O - Overall this was an excellent berliner. The base beer though was overshadowed by the passion fruit, but the flavour the fruit delivered was wonderful.

Serving Type: on tap
