This is one of the most interesting brews i have ever tried. Let me tell you that this beer smells terrible in the best way, has the MOST UNIQUE color i have ever seen in a beer, and tastes amazing. Can’t wait to see this brew in a 750ml bottle for sale!

This beer looks crazy. Hot pink/red. It smells...like a cheap strip club, and I mean that in the best possible way. Nicely sour and a bit funky. So perfumy. Salty. Just all around crazy. I did have to abandon the glass it was in because after numerous rinsings the hooker smell still wouldn’t come out.

What the hell? The color is insane. Neon pink pour. Fruit is insane in the nose and flavor. Lots of passion fruit. Amazing.

The aroma is very funky, but super intriguing. The appearance is outrageous . I have never seen a beer this color. It is like a bright cloudy pink, almost hot pink. No lacing, no head. Taste is surely rich. There is a definite presence of dragon fruit and passion fruit. Try it!!!!!!

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Fruit In The Room. Poured bright fuschia with a light pink head. Nose was very tropical with dragon fruit, passion fruit, peaches and pineapple and some nice tartness. Flavor was tart tropical fruits that was insanely complex and refreshing. Definitely my favorite beer from that day. Had again at Sourfest and it just keeps getting better and better.

Tap at Fruit in the Room 2011. The pour is a crazy reddish blue looking thing, very sci fi beverage with a huge reddish pink head. Huge tropical fruit, fresh cut passion fruit and some lemony tartness. Taste is fruity and tart, with a great balance between the sweet and tart, notes of passion fruit and lemon come through. Outstanding.

Thanks to Daknole for sharing the bottle. There is only one thing to say. The most amazing combination of fruit and tartness. The color is mind boggling. You need to see it for yourself.
