How we review

What the brewers say

“We’re totally Frucht around here. In fact, we may just be filled to the brim, with excitement, that is. Our threshold is 250 BBLs, to be more precise. That’s the total capacity of each new oak foeder at Bruery Terreux. One is dedicated exclusively to Frucht, our new series of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our new German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from its fermentation in the large oak foeder. This first installment has passion fruit added, which escalates the tartness, tropicality, and palate-cleansing prowess of the base beer.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Passion fruit that smells perfectly ripe and comes across as moderately sweet with a tart punch. Some kiwi, pineapple, and sweet floral notes. Very tropical. Slight bready malt in the background.”

Flavor: “Passion fruit is the star. There's a bit of bready malt, but if it weren’t for this beer being very dry, I might think it was just passion fruit juice. A bit of sweetness, but intensely sour. Very clean lactic acidity. Hints of pineapple, orange, lemon, apricot. The carbonation makes the beer dance on your tongue and the sweetness balances the acidity nicely. Just a touch of some funk.”

Overall: “This beer is a passion-fruit showcase. It comes across as ripe fruit or fruit juice. For the level of acidity I find this beer to be very drinkable. Nice balance of sweet, tart passion fruit with a sour finish. The flavors all flow together. The passion fruit hold up great.”
