Enter The Dragonfruit: Backyard Bout #23

Ron Swarner

Which dragonfruit beer will you enjoy the most?

Enter The Dragonfruit: Backyard Bout #23

The Bruery Terreux Frucht, Urban Family Dragon’s Wrath, and Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion 016 in a beer-head to beer-head, all-out battle to the death at your home.

Which will be the ultimate dragonfruit victor?

The Bruery Terreux Frucht

4.5% ABV

One of The Bruery Brewmaster Patrick Rue’s oak foeders is dedicated exclusively to Frucht, his series of fruited Berliner weisse-style beers. This tropical installment has pineapple, dragonfruit, and prickly pear added. It pours a clear golden with strong carbonation, fruity nose and huge blast of — wait for it — pineapple, prickly pear and dragonfruit.

Urban Family Dragon’s Wrath

7% ABV

Refreshing and bright raspberry, accented with sweet, and subtly sour dragonfruit, this fruited sour is light on tartness, but big on fruitiness.

Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion 016

5.9% ABV

The latest Luponic Distortion series IPA makes a statement with bold flavors of peach, pear drop and dragonfruit, all derived exclusively from 100 percent natural hops from Germany, the Pacific Northwest and New Zealand.
