Year of New Beer: Batida with Passionfruit, Southern Grist Brewing Co/Finback Brewery (Nashville)

Written By: Dion on 02/19/2020

An aroma with loads of passionfruit, tangerine, lime, and coconut transports you straight to the islands, and the transition to the tongue holds up its end as well. A moderate punch of sour courtesy of the lime, with passionfruit providing a juicy, slightly sweet note that is augmented beautifully by the lactose and creamy coconut. I've never had the cocktail that inspired this beer, but now I want rectify that. Love the flavor profile in this. Sour, sweet, and incredibly tropical. I almost passed on this when I stopped at the brewery, but I'm so glad I didn't.
