Passionfruit Sour (2017)
A Note on This Beer
It’s mouthpuckeringly fruity, tart in all the right places, and seemingly gets more crisp and refreshing the more you sip it -- we’re talking about Breakside Brewery’s Passionfruit Sour.
We never grow tired of its tropical flavors pulled straight from an Amazon cruise...and neither do craft fans: It’s ranked in the Top 50 for its kind on BeerAdvocate; it owns an outstanding 4.01 on Untappd; it’s earned a shiny GABF medal; and it’s fresh off winning Gold at the Best of Craft Beer Awards. In short, Passionfruit is a confirmed Northwest-bred Sour powerhouse.
Churning out every facet of passionfruit character, Breakside amplifies tartness with additions of pucker-boosting Lactobacillus. The lip-smacking result is a Sour fan’s dream come to true: a tropical-infused lemonade showered in crispness. As the exotic juices flow across the tongue, the Ale’s wheat base delivers a soft, crackling dry finish that makes you ready to savor passionfruit for more sips to come.
To get this kind of passionfruit intensity, normally you’d have to suffer through the jungle avoiding miles of mosquitos...or go to Whole Foods. Breakside does the work for you, bringing these tart and juicy visions of the rainforest into every bottle. Pucker up!
