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. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2012
At Fruit in the room. Pours a bright purple/pink. Aroma of sour passionfruit. Taste follows, the acidic notes come forward with the passionfruit, slight sweetness to try to balance but the sour is dominant. crazy good. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Fruit in the Room at CCB- catching up on rates, aroma is passionfruit and funky kinda laundry. Hot pink pour. Very very tart, long everlasting passionfruit aroma. Amazing! biggsbowler (629) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Fruit in the Room at CCB - OMG I need a pair of sunglasses to drink this blazing, bright violet and pink drink. The color is worth the price admission, but the taste and smell with the combination of the passionfruit and dragon fruit are unreal. Nicely balanced with some tartiness and a little pucker. Phenomenal is all I have to say, JW. urwithdave (10) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Lucky enough to have been able to drink this multiple times now. This and Miami Madness are simply two of the best beers I’ve ever had. The color is amazing and that is just the start. Huge tropical fruits with a nice puckering sourness. So easy to drink. Perfection in a glass.

Bottle shared by daknole. Never have seen a beer this color. Almost like a black light glowing pink. Taste is tart yet balanced. Like sex in my mouf. Sooo amazing. boamr (310) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Pour thanks to Dak. Pours a crazy red color that almost looks glowing. Pink head that is a hot pink color. Has a huge nose of dragonfruit that is just amazing. Has a fruity tart taste with the Passion fruit in the back leaving a Sharp sour taste that falls off pretty quick. The combination of tartness, fruit and sour is just perfect. crosamich (474) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - JUN 22, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 reverting to original rate from Hunahpu Day ’12. Radioactive pink/purple. VERY acidic with huge fruit flavor and aromas. Tried mixing this with Miami madness and it was crazy tart, very overpowering. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2012

Draft at Cigar City during Hunahpu Day 2012.
Pours a dark blood/beet red color that’s almost purple with a one finger pink foam head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal lacing left behind. Definitely a unique looking beer. Don’t see many that have that color.
The aroma is bursting with sweet tropical fruit. I’m not very familiar with either of these fruits but the tropical fruit presence dominates the nose. Slightly seedy with a decent amount of funk but the aroma is all about the dragonfruit/passionfruit. Could use a bit more funk/traditional berlinerweisse character but still smells really good.
Medium bodied with a nice balance of tart funkiness and sweet tropical fruit. More balanced than the nose suggests with some lactic funk, acidity and bready yeast but it’s still dominated by sweet, juicy fruit notes. Very sweet but with enough acidity and funk to keep it from becoming one dimensional. Very refreshing with a crisp dry finish. A lot of people went apeshit over this beer and while I think that’s it’s really good, it didn’t completely blow me away. I actually preferred the Miami Madness over this one.
surreal color... cotton candy technicolor nightmare.
sludgy thick coating on the glass...
aroma and flavors of sauerkraut, umami, rotted grain and a huge dose of passionfruit. odd, tart and neat-o. drinks heavy given low alcohol. 7.5/5/7/4/16
