Passionfruit Berlinerweiss

Style: Berliner Weiss

ABV: 5%

Time to change pace again, and pop back into the sours. The Passionfruit Berlinerweiss struck me hard, in a way that I was pleasantly reminded that beer takes on many forms and styles. This one hits with a strong passionfruit nose, like a juice cocktail. It tastes almost completely like fruit juice, highly refreshing, but with a bit of a grain kick at the end to remind you that this is, in fact, a beer. Patrons around me were remarking how well this would do out by the pool, and I'd have to agree.

Doc Brown Ale

Style: Brown Ale

ABV: 6.4%

As the night was winding down, it seemed appropriate to clock in one of the core beers that Funky Buddha will be offering in the future. After spotlighting Hop Gun IPA last week, the brown ale on offer seemed like a good choice to take on, especially as a way to wind down the taste buds after a night of the flavor circus. It has a medium body and is roasty enough to have a decent flavor profile. Much better than most commercial browns out right now in bottles.

If you somehow missed the grand opening festivities, get yourself acquainted with the brewery on a less crowded day, and see what the Buddha has to offer you. As always, drink good beer, and #drinklocal.
