Passion Fruit Prussia by 4 Hands brewing is a 4% ABV Berliner Weisse brewed with Passion fruit

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name Prussia originates from Frederick the Great. Frederick was trained to brew this very delicate style of beer and later became the King of Prussia. Our interpretation of the Berliner Weisse style is very traditional. *New Release with Passion Fruit

The Passion Fruit Prussia is our non-traditional look at the classic Berliner Weisse style. Brewed with a generous amount of passion fruit, this beer pours golden in color with a nice tart finish. A perfect compliment to the summer heat.

==Introduction==

I got this one as an extra along with some of the other beers I ordered. You don’t often see passion fruit beers and I have never tried 4 Hands brewing beers before. Love the art work but I am definitely exited to try this passion fruit sour. Passion fruit fresh is an awesome and exotic fruit. Hope this comes out great, cheers!

Aromas:
Passion fruit, sour peppercorns, lemon peel, lime, strawberry, dragon fruit hints, tart pineapple, papaya, citrus, coriander spice, tomatoes, citrus honey blossom, sourdough bread, whet bread, floral notes and lemon candy and honey comb.

Flavors:
Lemon peel, Passion fruit, pineapple, sour peppercorns, dragon fruit, strawberries, Tuna, Tomato, lemon, wheat bread, white grapes, banana hints, oranges, honey, old mango hints, crackers, wet hay, floral notes, cereal grains, stone fruit apricots, lemon candy, sourdough bread, oak hints, lavender, hibiscus, coriander spices, cereal grain, honey comb and citrus honey blossoms.

Aftertaste:
Finishes tart and dry with minor hints of passion fruit and honey. No alcohol in the taste, clear gold light body, crisp, smooth, watery but refreshing mouthfeel and an easy to moderate drinkability.

Overall:
A decent Berliner Weisse pairing great with seafood as stated on the can. I can see that already especially since the hints of spices with the tropical fruit and vegetable notes will complement those seafood dishes. I would only recommend this if you love sour beers and would appreciate a nice passion fruit sour beer.

Anime Corner:
Vocaloid Megurine Luka with her Octopus/Squidy self were used in this paring since I wanted to portray the colors of the passion fruit in this beer as well as the fact that the squidy version of her reminded me a lot of those Venus fly traps with their vines being like the tentacles. I have used Luka in a previous Berliner Weisse before so I figured she is fitting to represent that tart fruit color and tropical complexity of this beer.
