What the brewers say

“Dragon fruit, passion fruit, pineapple, and lime.”

What our panel thought

“Vibrant pink. Generic aroma of tropical-fruit punch. The passion fruit comes out very late in the retrosnasal and lingers. More tropical fruit in the flavor, with low sweetness into moderately strong but not harsh acidity. Extremely dry, leaving a puckering, astringent finish.”

What our editors thought

“Vivid color, but the nose tilts more earthy/fruit skin than juice or flesh. The sip pairs bold acidity with a dry but round tropical-fruit punch, for an intense and slightly unrelenting approach.”
