Cigar City has made a beer with passionfruit and dragonfruit that has 47 ratings that currently sits in the top 10 on this site. Hats off to them. This must by default mean that Americans make the world’s best Berliner Weiss!

How many of the 47 reviewers have actually had Passionfruit and Dragonfruit before drinking this beer?

And Americans make the best of many styles that originated elsewhere, so why the surprise? The number of new aggressively creative breweries in the US dwarfs other countries, so yeah this is going to happen.

American sours suck. Oh yeah, if Cigar City wasn’t owned by a ratebeerian, then their scores probably wouldn’t be as high. :P

And all that homerism and shit! Also, USA beer rules and everything else sucks and USA saisons are teh best ever no matter what!

Congrats to Cigar City for making as many great beers as they do!

This beer is the one that just might bring Edgeworth out of retirement. Why isn’t it bottled and available everywhere yet?

It can raise the dead? Sure it wasn’t brewed in Haiti?

I will track down a Santero to do just this if it is bottled and sent to me. The only stipulation is that I need to get 2 bottles so that i can drink one myself and enter into the spirit quest necessary to find a good Santero.

Though the best Berliner Weisse is brewed in Germany.

It is. But hush hush. Don’t tell the Americans.
