Nice straw pour, but wow this is a passionfruit, mango tropical bomb. Unreal nose on this one. Taste is as amazing as the smell, super sour, passion fruit and mango, very dry and very long finish. Probably the best Berliner you will find, superb.

2016, batch 2, drank on 12/21/2016

Look-almost looks like a hazy ipa or pulpy orange juice

Smell-not getting anything bold but it smells citrusy and tart

Taste-passion fruit galore! mango and guava are there as well

Feel-medium-heavy tartness, nice

Overall-a nice offering here. My first J Wakefield. The flavor explosion here being under 4% is just amazing. Really nicely done

This beer is uncontested.

Big white head, yellow-pineapple body.
Smell is huge tropical fruits, bread, pungency
Taste is perfect tropical berliner explosion with lots of different sweetness' going on.
Mouthfeel is on point, very drinkable, smooth and creamy
Overall this beer stands alone. Big props to JWB

On tap at Toppling Goliath. Pours a light, hazy yellow-orange body, one finger white head, minimal retention, not much lacing. Smells of guava, passion fruit, mango. Lots of tropical fruit here; mild lactic presence. Smells fantastic, full of fruit. Flavour is similarly fruit-forward, passion fruit, mango, guava, all of that, with a mild-moderate lactic acidity in the background. Not a whole lot else. Again, this isn't particularly complex outside of the fruit, but the fruit is nailed quite well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp, refreshing, super easy to drink. Mostly tropical fruit on the backend. Overall, this was a very fruit-forward berliner with a lot of tropical fruit character. I certainly preferred DFPF to this, but this is really good.

This one is, without a doubt, 5 across the board.
L: beautiful cloudy yellow body, with nice white head.
S: passion fruit bomb.
T: passion fruit up front, with mango/guava after a few swigs.
F: extremely smooth, + very creamy.

This beer should be 100.

Tons of guava, unique but not my cup of tea.
Aroma was heavy on the fruit/ citrus.
Taste was surprisingly a bit to sweet guava was throughout. I could have saved a bunch of time and just got guava juice.
Glad I got to try it but not going to be seeking it out again.
