On-tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2012. A - Pours a bright yellow color, white fizzy head, thin collar. S - A tropical explosion, to say the least. The sour/tart notes aren’t quite as strong as the Passionfruit/Dragonfruit, which is nice. Citrus, mango, pineapple, mandarin oranges. So refreshing. T - I would drink this beer every morning with my breakfast, if I could. Huge tropical sweetness, so fresh...just like the fruits from the market and put into my drink. The tartness is really nice and subtle, which makes this chuggable. Finish is light tartness and fruits. M - Light, uber-refreshing, good carbonation, dry tart finish. O - An excellent berliner, to say the least. This beer was just super crushable and was like drinking a fruity refreshing beach cocktail. Right up there with the Passionfruit Dragonfruit, IMO. Superb.

Mango passion Berliner, aka Miami had a few samples at Hunahpus Day 2012... Intense tropical fruit with mango and passionfruit, vivid and bright with a very active sour quality... Flavors follow suit to a tee and follows through a bit more juicy fruit with an ideal sense if sour quality. Easy drinking with lighter than medium bodied. Delightful. 9/5/9/4/18

Holy crap somebody get a tap line of this and hook it up at my house. Pours a orangish yellow. BOOM this think has so much tropical fruit in the nose it is ridiculous, guava, bananas, citrus, passionfruit, mangoes. Like a dang tropical fruit market in a glass, and that is just how it tastes. The carbonation is spot on and the body is medium but well balanced against everything else. Super winner here.

On draft at Hunahpu Day 2012. Pours the color of grapefruit juice with a white head. Nose is some light malt, tart citrus along with definite guava and airs of mango and passion fruit. Flavor is similar to the Royal Rumble of tartness that is the other JW berliners, but this one has guava throughout to nurse the mouth through the mammoth tartness. Medium in body for a berliner and simply outstanding overall.

On draft at Cigar City Huna Day 2012. OK I thought that Cookies & Milk was the best beer of the day until I tried this. Absolutely incredible! If I could get this on a regular basis I would stock up, big time. Everything is just spot on, the sour funk, aroma, flavor, everything.

Oh my god. I could drink this by the gallon. Pours a cloudy dark yellowish color, white head. Aroma is just loaded with tart and tropical fruits. I get lots of guava up front finishing with passionfruit and mango. Flavor is so juicy, enticingly sour, but so drinkable. So perfectly balanced. WOW. You did it again my friend. BRAVO!

Poured a cloudy straw yellow with some orange highlights. Aromas of tart citrus acid, guava, and some mango. Flavors of not overpowering tart tropical fruits, with some grain flavor peaking its head out. Again another outstanding Berliner that was great in the heat.

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a frothy white head. Exotic fruit aromas. Phenomenal!! Tart and refreshing with all kinds of acidic citrusy elements. Light in body with papaya, guava, and mango highlights. Seriously, this is the second year in a row that JW’s berliner weisses have stolen the show!!!!

Another one that went quickly on Hunahpu day. This was my favorite berliner. A fantastic aroma to start and the flavor finished with a great balance of what I could only think of as pineapple meat (as you get closer to the core). A stunner. Sourness and acidity were spot on.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 This fantastic brew looked like watered down orange juice and had some lacing. Aromas were full of papaya, banana and guavas. The taste was full of sour tropical fruits that balanced out with a bright and holly finish. It would be a pleasure to drink too much of it.
