Pours hazy red. The aroma holds passion fruit, citrus, lacto and light wheat. Touch of banana. The flavour is dry, near heavily acidic with notes of fruits/citrus, lacto and a little wheat. The mouthfeel is tart with with medium carbonation. Burning acidic and fruity finish. Light to medium bodied.

Multiple pours at What the Funk!? Pour is bright pink in appearance with a small white/pink head and good lacing. Huge passionfruit, strawberry, raspberry, super tropical, wheat, lacto aroma, but wow the smell is amazing tropical fruits. Taste is huge passionfruit, pineapples, raspberries, red wine vinegar, strawberries, light hints of wheat and vanilla with a big sour finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. This is one amazing tropical fruit juice sour! Delicious!

Really enjoying the brews that I tasted from Cigar City. This is one complex beer that finishes with a refreshing fruit. Pours nice and develops a decent head on top. Really gives off some wonderful aromas. Check out Cigar if you have not already when your in central Florida.

Finally got the chance to try this one. Really amazing. While it’s not example a berliner, more of an American Wild with fruit, it’s simply delicious whatever it is. Beautiful color and loads of fruit aromatics. Flavor is a beautiful blend of the two fruit components along with a fairly-strong acidity that just keeps you coming back for more. I could drink this non-stop.

At Fruit in the room. Pours a bright purple/pink. Aroma of sour passionfruit. Taste follows, the acidic notes come forward with the passionfruit, slight sweetness to try to balance but the sour is dominant. crazy good.

Fruit in the Room at CCB - OMG I need a pair of sunglasses to drink this blazing, bright violet and pink drink. The color is worth the price admission, but the taste and smell with the combination of the passionfruit and dragon fruit are unreal. Nicely balanced with some tartiness and a little pucker. Phenomenal is all I have to say, JW.

Lucky enough to have been able to drink this multiple times now. This and Miami Madness are simply two of the best beers I’ve ever had. The color is amazing and that is just the start. Huge tropical fruits with a nice puckering sourness. So easy to drink. Perfection in a glass.
