Description 

Mischief Managed is our series of fruited Berliner Weisses. This version is aged in our French oak Foeder on passionfruit and guava. Tart, crisp and clean, this juicy Berliner Weisse is refreshingly dry. Berliner Weisse yeasts are notorious for causing mischief in the beer if not managed correctly, so we kept this beer squirreled away in our French oak foeders at the Garage for months.

Mischief Managed - Guava/Passion fruit by Monday Night Brewing is a Berliner Weisse-style beer with guava and passion fruit, brewed by Monday Night Brewing and judged as BJCP Category 29A, Fruit Beer.

Only a low carbonation level seems apparent upon opening, judging by the very quiet hiss. It sounds fizzier as it pours, but results in no head. There is a thick, moist ring of yeast sediment around the bottle lip despite upright storage for about two weeks. This beer has a fruity and sour aroma, which comes off as clean. It is an opaque orange in appearance. The flavor is also fruity -- passion fruit and a general tropical character dominate -- with no hop flavor. It has a tart, drying finish. Overall it is light and crisp with moderate-high carbonation, but not lively like a typical Berliner.
