UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 Draft… CCB Fruit in the Room 2011… This beer rocks!… Pours dragonfruit red (almost fuchsia) with a mid-sized, creamy, pink head. Good retention. The aroma offers boatloads of tropical passionfruit, dragonfruit and earthy red and black currants to go along with plenty of wonderful acidity. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor is fantastically tart and fruity with a crisp, tangy finish. Even after I walked around in the Tampa heat a good while, the beer remained just as fruity, acidic and clean as when it was first poured. Amazing brew!

Hunahpus 2011. Pours the most amazing scarlet red color I’ve ever seen in a beer. Aroma is completely awesome. Passionfruit, Dragonfruit, sour jolly ranchers...leads to a flavor profile that is as good and unique as any beer I’ve ever tried. Amazing balance of mouthpuckering sourness, tropical fruit heaven. So juicy, such wonderful carbonation. Best beer of the day. And that’s saying a lot! A masterpiece.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Tap at Hunahpu 2011. Everyone was carrying around the festival something that looked like Kool-aid burst so I decided to find out what it was. Lo and behold, Dragon Passionfruit Berliner Weisse. The pour is a hilariously deep, clear pink with a nice, fizzy pink head. Looks like a fruit juice spritzer. Aroma is heavy seedy raspberries, odd phenol character. Taste is heavy berry tannic, fully tart like a passionfruit smoothie. Some people at the festival claimed it wasn’t very tart, which is incorrect. Very refreshing and nicely done. Definitely something to pursue for the normal CCB lineup- bound to be the most loved beer in the world by women in their 20s. If you want more girls getting into good beer, this is the winning ticket. 3/14/2011 7/4/7/4/14=3.6
Tap at Berliner Bash thanks to JW77. Gorgeous purple pink pour. Full haze. Creamy and glowing. Whoa. Nose is super intense rhubarb/strawberry, dragonfruit, fresh mango. Taste is very nice- super seedy, sharp and zippy, loads of acid, small wheat beer graininess remains. Very nice. Heavy citric acid. Zippy, lactic yogurty palate. Delicious though I like the Rhubarb Pie and Miami Madness a lot more. 5/18/2012 8/5/8/4/16=4.1

Tasted at the Black Friday tasting and generously supplied by Dak. It pours an amazing bright vibrant rosy red purple sort of a color and seems it belongs at a Dr. Seuss fairy tale holiday meal and it supports a thin pinkish white head. Holy hell, what is this? OK the aroma, it is simply bold and big and runs toward crazy beyond belief. I get crumbly blue cheese, bloated bird feces, soiled and molding old diapers, earthy rotting fruit, fresh vomit rimmed with bile, vinegar, body odor and revolting to the point you’re not sure you want to go on. Well, the oddness and depth and intrigue and it’s this whole aroma put together that smells very intriguing thus it pulls you forward. The taste has yummy refreshing exotic fruity tartness, moldy crumbled blue cheese, vinegar, body odor and a pleasing earthy fruitiness that pulls it together and balances it out. Crazy insane beer.

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.

RATING # 2000! Absolutely stellar beer- one of the best from Hunahpu Day 2011. Pours a psychadelic pink-purple with a white head. Nose is berry burst, tropical dark fruit, with notes of tartness, and prickly citrus presence. The flavor up front was a nice berry, kool-aid, dark tropical fruit followed quickly by mind-numbing mouth-puckering sour presence. Light to medium body; far and away the best berliner I have ever had. Stellar beer. Big thanks to JW77 for bringing me a pour.

On draft for Fruiitt in the Room, poured a neon pink color with a huge pink head. Once the head settled, tropical fruits and tangyness is what you smell. Flavors oof dragonfruit, mango, passion fruit, and a sweet/acidy aftertaste.

On-tap at Hunaphu. Props to Jon for brewing this bad boy. Buzzed beer of the day as all of a sudden I was surrounded by everyone drinking this down like juice and I didn’t even get my own pour... This beer looks stunning and played a huge role in getting the word out. The body is a brilliant bright pink that is semi clear and looked great and refreshing in the sun... The aroma was fantastic, it was very tart but balanced by sweet tropical fruits. Perfectly balanced sweet and tart... This is again sweet on the fruit showing off tons of fresh Florida fruits, also shows off a tart note from the fruit. Its not as tart as the nose, wish it was a touch more, but that’s such a minor thing here.
This is awesome and easy to drink. Really lucky to try this.
