1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This looks nice with a light amber color and a thin white head. Fruity nose. The palate is a mix of nearly rancid fruit flavors and vegetal hints. Not good at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a cloudy copper with a small frothy white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is dark fruits and floral. Thin mouthfeel with a spicy fruit and light spice finish. Easy to drink a good fruit beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. Pours murky dark amber with a short head. Little retention and lace. Funky aroma that must be the lilikoi-cherry combo. Comes off a bit malty and oaked even though its the fruit. Light sweet flavor. Dry fruit, slightly tart. Light body, prickly carbonation, thin sticky texture, and a dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Muddy brown red look with an ok tan head. The smell is malts, fruits, cherry pits, hay, and dirt. The taste is sweeter and more fruity than the smell, slight tang, and ok.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz can. Pours hazy reddish amber with a smallish creamy off white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet malts and some fruits (cherry).
The flavor is a little sweet acidic cherry and tropical fruit with a weird medicinal leathery finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, it’s a bit subdued but a decent fruit beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home. Poured a deep amber with little-to-no head. Cherries, tea, grain, corn, and bread in the aroma. Grain, cereal, watered-down fruit, light cherry, esters and bread ending very dry. Light mouthfeel high carbonation. Really boring, grainy, corn bitterness, lager-like and watered down. This beer was a real dissappoint for me and definitely a let down considering the two breweries involved. I hope the JP version is better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky red brown pour with a thin quickly diminishing cream head. Aroma is tropical fruit, cherry, and wet wood. Taste has some tart cherry and some tea-like characteristics. Tartness comes out more as it sits. Pretty dry.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muddy, almost opaque reddish-copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of lychee and other tropical fruit, cherry, bread and vegetable. Taste is unfortunately much weaker than I was hoping for. It’s fruity and slightly sweet with a very mild tartness. Medium bodied. Disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a deep reddish brown without much head. Aroma is overwhelmingly passion fruit. Taste is more less a passion fruit beer. The cherry adds a little sweetness and a bit of tartness, which is what stays on the tongue. Tastes like juicy juice as it fades away with a citrus burn on the throat.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mediocre beer which surprised me. This collab should have killed
It. Practically no nose appeal but it is aesthetically pleasing. Minor cherry hints, a tad bit your typical wheat beer enhanced by fruit.
