On tap. Light pink head. Clear ruby pink color.

Tropical fruit all around. Light tartness. Not sour, but a little mouth puckering. Very straightforward Berliner. Easy drinking. Full of flavor.

Pours a clear crimson pink color with a pink small head. Lots of fruit in this one but not in a sour way , its tart and dry fruit is on the tropical/garden side. A tart dry finish

On draft at release.

Wonderful pink color with little head and strong passion fruit smell.

Crisp clean bodied with amazing pop of tropical fruit flavors. Slightly tart and easy to drink.

unique beer for sure, perhaps the most dragon fruit forward beer i have ever come across, and while the souring is a little dirty and sloppy, i think the fruit aspect of this is incredible, and so i find myself liking the beer overall despite the brewer's apparently mediocre grasp of kettle souring. the fruit really makes this one, and if you dont know what dragon fruit tastes like on its own, this is it. its like a mix of fruit punch kool aid, citrus, hibiscus, and crisp radish, kind of an odd fruit, fragrant and sweet, and this beer captures it extremely well. the passion fruit is a nice add too, gives it a little tartness as well, and is just as natural as the dragon fruit. the sour part i do my best to look past, its cheesy and a little harsh on the teeth, but its also got some butyric acid in it, which i cant stand, but the sweetness of the fruit covers it up enough to be drinkable. this is a cool beer, really unique, but its not technically all that good. the hype train is alive and well with these guys, how some of these amateurish beers score so high here on BA is entirely beyond me...
