COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From atop our brewery's roof, if the sun shines hard enough to burn away the bay's semi-permanent blanket of fog, we are gifted beautiful views of sailboats dancing across the San Francisco Bay. Daydreams of what it's like to be on one of those boats float through our heads as sweat from the brewday drips to the ground. While on the boats they are enjoying their tiki drinks, while we'll be alleviating the heat with some Caribbean Queen. Inspired by a blend of various tiki drinks, the result is a beer soured to the point of mouth puckering acidity and is then fermented with passion fruit, red sour cherries, oranges, limes, and El Dorado hops. The result is an over the top fruity Catamaran of a sour beer ripping through your palate and leaving only tart and juicy greatness in its wake.

Tap at Cap Hop. Pours berry/rosé with a possibly pinkish head. Aroma is a mixture of fruit and fermented tea leaves for me. Med body. Flavor is mildly berry tart with some sweet fruits like citrus/tropical. Think passionfruit is detectable. Get a hint of fermented tea leaves. Overall it seems more sweet than tart. Pleasant. Not dry; not bitter. Sort of fun.

Thanks Matthew for sharing the crowler! Poured into a snifter showing moderately filtered light whitish pink and a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows highly tart tropical notes of passion fruit and citric grapefruit. The palate is light bodied and highly carbonated. Highly tart with juicy flavors of passion fruit and citric grapefruit throughout.
