3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Avery Tap Takeover at 4th Street Patio Bar and Grill on 09/26/2012: The beer is a hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit and bready malt. Light-bodied with a tasty passion fruit character and floral and toasted malt notes. The finish is sweet with a lingering tropical fruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is of strong passion fruit. Not your standard beer aroma, but amazing none the less! Taste is very passion fruit, with a nice tart finish. Slight sweet, but from the passion fruit and very enjoyable. Really an amazing beer. Super different, but great.

Multiple pints have been poured and drunk at Avery taptoom. First poured during GABF. Passion fruit is very strong. Very fruity and easy to drink. Almost tastes like I’m eating the fruit directly. I could drink this beer all day long! Let me buy a keg!!!!!

On draft in Columbus (OH)
Sitting at the Winking Lizard after a long drive this jumped out as the only place to start. The payoff was a fine sour that met my expectations for the style but is generally not as good as some of the barrel aged stuff coming out of Avery’s cellars. Even so it is worth a sample if you discover it on tap.
Aroma / Appearance - A cloudy golden base looks like watery honey with a thin white head. Pineapples, lemons, and cheesecake smell like a belini in pint form. Without being a saccharine mess it definite leans towards the sweet end of the spectrum.
Flavor / Palate - Tangy sweet pineapple core, mango, and grapefruit are tropical and fresh. The fruity burst of orange and lemon emerge next. Finally the passionfruit takes centerstage in a fruity finish that tastes more like a cocktail at an island resort than anything that most people would think of as beer. This is excellent from start to finish.

On tap at GABF - By the way loved Avery’s setup at the festival. Nice tart wheat, big passionfruit, fruity, tropical. The body of a tripel. Really nothing like I have had. This was killer.
