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.
