Traditional German Berliner weisse beers are tart affairs, often sweetened by the addition of woodruff syrup. Brewed with white wheat malt and fermented with lactobacillus, our tart Berliner riffs on this popular German tradition with the inclusion of juicy passionfruit. The lush, tropical, and mildly grapefruity notes of the passionfruit offsets the inherent tartness of the beer, making for a intoxicatingly fruity, yet refreshing experience.

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, blue session. 02/05/2014. Aroma is huge fresh passion fruit, bursts from the glass. Lovely with delicately tart and wheat. Clouded yellow / straw coloured pour with a light loose white head. Flavour is fresh passionfruit with a nice tart sharp bite, some other tart fruits raspberry. Light acid tartness lingers. Palate is very dry and sharp. Really very good.

humlelala (1306) - DENMARK - JUN 11, 2014
(on tap @ Mikropolis Copenhagen) Pours a hazy golden with no head and floaties. Aroma is solidly fruity with dominant passion fruit notes to the point of reminding me of some infant formula yoghurt with fruit juice. Theres not much detectable lactic sourness or tartness in the aroma. Flavour is mildly sour lemon but this is offset well by the pungent passion fruit sweetness. Muthfeel is oily, carbonation is soft, body is medium and the finish is mildly tart.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUN 5, 2014
On tap. Light golden pour with no head. The aroma is intense and bursting with passion fruit. A light hint of lactobaccillus traces in there, which makes it quite similar to passion fruit yoghurt (Cultura) - but the lacto isnt overpowering as it can often be in BWs - its only a slight trace, and leaces plenty of room for the fruit. The taste is all the same with a huge amount of passion fruit and citrus - a really nice lactic acidity which ultimately makes it one heck of a thirst quencher. Still plenty of space for the fruit.. I wanna drink this all summer!
