Pretty good stuff and very much like tropical punch flavors that have been soured but in a good way. It’s not the kind of beer you want to drink a lot of but it’s nice for one period good aroma, nothing special to look at.

Dogbrick (13132) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2017
Sample during the ’Driveway Beer Inventory Reduction - Help Me Obi Wan’ tasting on 05/19/2017. Cloudy bright yellow-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lace. Aroma of tropical fruit, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of peach, mango, floral yeast and malt. The finish is moderately sour with a tropical fruit aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Bottle. Maybe just some grain for the malt, but the rest of the aroma is mango, peach and passion fruit. Head is small, fizzy, off-white, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is murky light amber. Flavor starts heavily to harshly acidic and sour, then finishes heavily acidic and sour. Palate is light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation and an extremely tart finish. Great fruity smells and super tart feel in this Sour Ale.

Bright cloudy yellow orange. Big juicy funky aroma of passionfruit and pit fruits. Flavor has a bit of acidity and sour funk, but is braced nicely by the sweet tart fruit. Refreshing and tasty.

Man, this beer is exactly what its label says it is. Nose like a big glass o’ Hawaiian Punch, and a taste that explodes with peach and mango on top of a wicked lacto sourness. Mild grainy malts provide the slightest of backbone, but this beer’s all about the fruit, the passionfruit showing up on the finish to create dry but familiar fruit punch fade. Pretty perfect summer beer. Good stuff.

Pours hazy gold into a snifter. Bright white head crackles and quickly recedes to nothing. Mango, passion fruit and peach aromas. Tart with peach skin, mango pith and passion fruit upfront turning to tart grapefruit pith and marshmallow in the medium length finish. Tropical indeed.

wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Tasted on 5/6/17 from a capped 330mL bottle purchased at St Gambrinus. Pours hazy pale orange with a thin white head that quickly disappears. The nose is all of the fruit candy, from peach rings, to mango candy, with hints of pineapple and passionfruit. The flavor is lactic and wheat sour, with all of the same candied peach and tropical fruit from the nose coming through very tart, but with nice balance still. The body is light with thin, fizzy carbonation, and a long tart sour and peach ring candy finish.

3.7
rxeight (3108) - Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2017
11.2 oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with no head. Aroma is peach sour gummy rings. Taste is fruit cocktail. Lemon, stone fruit, pears. Mild to medium sourness, slight acidity.

3.7
DocLock (10721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle from Frank Smith’s. Hazy golden with fizzy body and minimum head. Nose is tart fruit, peach, mango, honeydew. Tastes tart, very fruity, with notes of peach, mango, honeydew, lactic acidity.

4.2
willisread (3380) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2017
Tap at Mellow. Pours a hazy straw with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Huge tropical punch nose with mango, cherry and passion fruit standing out. Some rose and pineapple as it warms. Tart on the palate. A fun beer that is super crushable!
