Quatro Graus | Passion Is Never Too Much

Quatro Graus | Passion Is Never Too Much

A fruit beer with lots of sour passion fruit. Fermented with two yeasts, being one tipically american and the second a german one, and complemented with a Halertau Blanc dry-hopping, it showcases a refreshing and juicy fruits complexity which will make you fall in love.

  • Beer: Passion Is Never Too Much
  • Style: Fruit Beer (29A. Fruit Beer - Pale Ale with passion fruit)
  • ABV: 7.5%
  • IBU: N/A
  • Brewery:
  • Look: orange color, turbid, with a very low white head formation;
  • Aroma: very strong presence of passion fruit as a whole, reminding both the fruit pulp and the fruit seeds. Light lemon notes. Very light yeast notes;
  • Taste: its taste brings passion fruit notes from the start to the end of the sip, with a medium acidity that is highlighted by the very high carbonation and the carbonic bite that comes from it;
  • Mouthfeel: Medium body, very high carbonation and a dry and short finish;
  • Overall: Very good fruit beer, with a very evident passion fruit. The carbonation plays an unfortunate role on this beer, as its excess (maybe caused by the fruit refermentation on the can?) has some collateral effects, like the disclosure of the acidity and, probably due to that, an acid harshness when the beer is swallowed. Despite that, it’s a beer that has potential and that, by correcting its carbonation, could become even better.
