BJCP 2015 Guideline

Fruit Beer Specialty Fruit Beer


BJCP 2015 29C Specialty Fruit Beer example
29C - Specialty Fruit Beer


Overall Impression

A harmonious marriage of fruit, sugar, and beer, but still recognizable as a beer. The fruit and sugar character should both be evident but in balance with the beer, not so forward as to suggest an artificial product.


If the additional fermentables or processes do not add a distinguishable character to the beer, enter it as a normal 29A Fruit Beer and omit a description of the extra ingredients or processes.
