Draft… CCB’s Hunahpu’s Day 2012This beer rocks!… Murky light-yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma supplies loads of tropical fruitiness and acidity – pineapple, passionfruit, lemon and a hint of mango. Medium-bodied and ultra-creamy with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor is crazy fruity and involuntary-eye-squintingly sour, providing plenty of passionfruit, mango and pineapple greatness. Finishes crisp, silly tart and clean. Another world class sour fruit beer brewed by Johnathan Wakefield on CCB’s pilot system!

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!

Draught at All In Beer Fest 2014. Hazy pale golden, medium white head. Intense fresh tropical fruit aroma, some yougurth and vinegar as well. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Dry and intensely sour.

On draft at Hunahpu Day 2012. Pours the color of grapefruit juice with a white head. Nose is some light malt, tart citrus along with definite guava and airs of mango and passion fruit. Flavor is similar to the Royal Rumble of tartness that is the other JW berliners, but this one has guava throughout to nurse the mouth through the mammoth tartness. Medium in body for a berliner and simply outstanding overall.

Growler big thanks to Greg. Pours hazy yellow orangish with a minimal rim of bubbles dissapearing quite fast. Aroma is sour acidy fruity mango passionfruit slightly astringent. Flavor sour acidy tart and fruity in front, some sweetness lots of tropical fruits, nice passionfruit and mango, a bit acetone, lemon juice at the end. Finishes with a great sour tart and freshly fruity aftertaste.

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.

Mango passion Berliner, aka Miami had a few samples at Hunahpus Day 2012... Intense tropical fruit with mango and passionfruit, vivid and bright with a very active sour quality... Flavors follow suit to a tee and follows through a bit more juicy fruit with an ideal sense if sour quality. Easy drinking with lighter than medium bodied. Delightful. 9/5/9/4/18

Pours cloudy yellow. The aroma holds passion fruit with undertones of mango, lemon, lacto and a little wheat. Really bright. The flavour is dry, heavily acidic with almost no bitterness. Tropical fruit, citrus, lacto and a touch of wheat. The mouthfeel is surprisingly robust and really tartish with a medium carbonation. Lingering fruity and acidic finish. Near medium bodied.

Multiple pours at What the Funk!? Pour is hazy golden yellow with a big white head and good lacing. Super sour fruits, light lactic, passionfruit, pineapple, lemony notes, definitely picking up the guava, and a hint of vanilla in the aroma. Taste is very sour, somewhat acidic, lemon peel, white wine vinegar, almost salty, wheat, pineapple, and mango with a big sour finish. Light body with high carbonation. Really tasty berliner/sour hybrid.
