“Bel­gian-style wheat in­fused with co­pi­ous amounts of pas­sion fruit.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Juicy trop­i­cal fruit fla­vors of peach, pear, mango, can­taloupe, cit­rus, and pas­sion fruit. Like a can of ripe fruit cock­tail with a very fruity, very tart edge. The retronasal is dried apri­cot and trop­i­cal fruit juice. There’s a smooth wheat char­ac­ter be­neath that brings ev­ery­thing to­gether, along with some herbal and grassy notes as it warms.” Fla­vor: “Sur­pris­ingly in­tense pas­sion fruit up front, with a pleas­ant tart­ness to bal­ance the sweet­ness from the fruit and the wheat. Co­conut fla­vors re­mind me of a Piña co­lada. The wheat char­ac­ter be­neath serves as a se­condary but sup­port­ing role, and the car­bon­a­tion height­ens the acid­ity, but also clears off the palate, en­cour­ag­ing more sips.” Over­all: “An amaz­ingly fla­vor­ful, fruity beer that sur­prises with an in­tense pas­sion-fruit char­ac­ter that takes hold and doesn’t let go. And so. Much. Fruit. The beer does hide un­der­neath some­what, and it does feel like drink­ing a can of trop­i­cal fruit cock­tail, but the pas­sion fruit is very well ex­e­cuted.”
