Passionfruit Sour Ale
an uncommon sour ale with a kiss of tropical fruit Our award­winning sour ale returns for 2014 as our official “summer seasonal.” Passionfruit Sour is brewed as a traditional German Berliner weisse, and then we add a unique, tropical twist. We use lactic acid­ producing bacteria to produce a beer that is light in body, extremely refreshing, and mouth puckeringly tart. The addition of passionfruit in our lagering tanks gives this beer an inviting stonefruit aroma.
