I may be totally shooting myself in the foot with this post because I want all of this beer for myself. Portland’s Breakside Brewing recently landed in Hawaii with 2 beers, Wonderlust IPA and their award winning summer seasonal, Passionfruit Sour Ale. Both are excellent beers, but I don’t get very excited about a new IPA anymore. I do however become like a kid on Christmas Day when there is a new funky beer to try. Most of the great sour beers being brewed in America are special releases that normally can only be found at the brewery or within the close surrounding area, so when one lands in Hawaii it’s exciting news.
Breakside’s Passionfruit Sour Ale (4.0% ABV) is based on the German Berliner Weisse style. It is brewed with a large amount of wheat and sour fermented with Lactobacillus, which gives the beer a wonderful mouth puckering tartness. I’m a massive fan of the style because it is light, spritzy, incredibly refreshing and finishes with a wonderful lemony tartness. Traditionall
