Growing wild on our grandfather’s farm fences and in the tree lines all around our Arnaudville home, we have consumed a lot of fresh passion fruit through the years. The vines still grow abundantly around our family’s crawfish pond and behind the brewery, along the banks of the Bayou Teche. When they are in season, after a hard days work, we look forward to sitting in the shade of a large oak tree on that bayou’s bank, enjoying the pulpy fruit till we nearly make ourselves sick.
When they arrived in Acadiana, our French-speaking ancestors discovered the passion fruit growing here and named it grenade (pronounced grruh-nod). We still call it that today, the fruit’s juice has a refreshingly tropical, guava-like, sweet/tart flavor.
Passionné is our wheat beer, which we brew to quench Acadiana’s warm weather thirsts. The ale is the color of a South Louisiana sun, and pours with the bright citrus flavor of passion fruit.
It’s hot out. Find the shade of a large moss-drenched oak tree on a bayou near you, relax and enjoy a bottle. Welcome to beer drinkers’ paradise.

Growler from Joe Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Pours a brassy gold color with a small frothy white head. Aroma of tart fruit and wheat malt. Flavor is light wheat and tangy fruit (passion). Light bodied and a hint of sour fruit in middle. Very refreshing and a nice hot weather wheat ale.

Enjoyed at BTBF 2016. Cloudy yellow color. Weed notes. Spicy aroma with some fruit. Fruity nose. Fruit on the flavor as well with an easy finish. Nice.

BelgianBeerGal (3856) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle grabbed in NOLA. Bubbly, clear gold color with a thin white film. Lightly sweet and sour aroma with a hint of grain. Its an interesting flavor. I wouldn’t immediately guess passion fruit but you definitely get some tart, fruity flavors. Pretty tasty.

Cybercat (5169) - Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Pours clear amber with a fairly thick and frothy eggshell head. Malty aroma has a definite fruity overtone to it - must be passion fruit. Flavor is mainly fruity - passion fruit again - with a malty underpinning and a hint of hops. Mouthfeel is average in the fizz and body departments, but it leaves a distinct passion fruit finish. Be passionate about your beer!

4/29/15. On draft at World of Beer Destin. Not understanding the low score here... clear golden pour with a nice khaki head, great lacing. Bold passion fruit aroma, light spice, clean. Really enjoying the flavor. Lots of passion fruit in my mouth and it lingers intensely in a good way. Very tasty!
