On draft at Cigar City Huna Day 2012. OK I thought that Cookies & Milk was the best beer of the day until I tried this. Absolutely incredible! If I could get this on a regular basis I would stock up, big time. Everything is just spot on, the sour funk, aroma, flavor, everything.

Oh my god. I could drink this by the gallon. Pours a cloudy dark yellowish color, white head. Aroma is just loaded with tart and tropical fruits. I get lots of guava up front finishing with passionfruit and mango. Flavor is so juicy, enticingly sour, but so drinkable. So perfectly balanced. WOW. You did it again my friend. BRAVO!

Poured a cloudy straw yellow with some orange highlights. Aromas of tart citrus acid, guava, and some mango. Flavors of not overpowering tart tropical fruits, with some grain flavor peaking its head out. Again another outstanding Berliner that was great in the heat.

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a frothy white head. Exotic fruit aromas. Phenomenal!! Tart and refreshing with all kinds of acidic citrusy elements. Light in body with papaya, guava, and mango highlights. Seriously, this is the second year in a row that JW’s berliner weisses have stolen the show!!!!

Another one that went quickly on Hunahpu day. This was my favorite berliner. A fantastic aroma to start and the flavor finished with a great balance of what I could only think of as pineapple meat (as you get closer to the core). A stunner. Sourness and acidity were spot on.

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day. Pours a cloudy yellow orange. Nose is big citrus and tart acidic acid. Heavy sweet fruits. Flavor was giant guava, unreal. Perfect amount of acid so its not overwhelming, but perfectly sour. Loved this beer.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 This fantastic brew looked like watered down orange juice and had some lacing. Aromas were full of papaya, banana and guavas. The taste was full of sour tropical fruits that balanced out with a bright and holly finish. It would be a pleasure to drink too much of it.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 Tap at Hunahpu day 2012. I’m not much of a sour guy but any beer J. Wakefield touches seems to be frickin awesome. This one had a real fruity, guava-esque aroma to it. Acidic citrus and tropical fruits explode on the nose. Woah. Body wise, this one was a hazy light orange color. The initial taste makes you pucker up a bit but not too much. The tropical fruits really come out with a grainy background that make this one pretty well balanced. Tart but not overly so. Great!

On tap at CCB for Hunahpu’s Day 2012. Pours cloudy orangeish appearance. Aroma is like one of those cheap cans of frozen orange juice you can get from Wal-Mart... but in a good way. Very tart, but the fruit starts to balance out the sour and there is a nice wheaty background that makes this extremely balanced. Very, Very, Very good sour.
