Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2014
2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Best by 01/14/14 Golden in the glass, neutral nose. The beer starts also very neutral. Where is the passion fruit? Smooth, hints of wheat. The mainpart is a bit more intense, but all aroma is very subtle. Nothing special or remarkable. In the end there are hints of fruitiness - probably the passion fruit here. On the tongue remains a wheat-ale like smooth aroma, nearly no hops, together with hints of sour passion fruit.
All in all very disappointing. No deep aroma, nearly no passion fruit, nothing remarkable. --> 7/11/6/7

Bottle. Golden, clear, cap of white foam. Sweet grainy aroma and flavour. Nearly no fruit character to speak of. Odd. Not good.

From a bottle. Pours clear amber with almost no head. Tastes like light fruit and malt, bready. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like bread and grains. Very mild fruit aroma.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
La. 31 Passione’ has a thick, yet, quickly dissipating head, a clear, bubbly, brilliant, orange appearance and pretty much no lacing left behind. The aroma is mild and nice- sweet, white wheat bread, white bread crust, a little bit of mustiness, and a touch of fruit, but just a touch. Taste is of those things, but one will pick up more fruit, here, with a bit of pepper zest. I could not detect any bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with a carbonation prickle. La. Passione’ finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is really nice. RJT

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lazy golden amber colored pour. No head. Some bubbles from the nucleation site in the NB globe. Looks like cider. Surprise, it also smells like cider. Well, more like apple juice. And that is pretty much it. Tastes like a passion fruit juice. Strange.
