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.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with white head. Light fruits, passion fruits most pronounced and a little yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied beer. Finishes with a little wheat note followed by fruit.

McKinney, Tx - Choice Beverage - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour, light eggshell white head. Aroma has some light yeasty accrnts, a hint of passion fruit fruitiness. Flavor is interesting with some passion fruit, some cake mix sweetness, some white grapes. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it.

Clear amber with a small whitish head. Aroma of tropical fruit, berries, and wheat. The taste is light grains with a nice, not too sweet fruitiness. Light bodied and very slightly dry. Pretty decent.

Cybercat (4290) - 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!

chinchill (3356) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2015
On tap. A mild, very drinkable beer that had some fine subtle complexities. Passion fruit? The thin body is a bit watery even though the carbonation was properly set.

EtTuCthulhu (1386) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2014
The beer pours a hazy amber color with a small white head that fades quickly to a white ring. The aroma blends passion fruit, acidity, Belgian yeast, and a hint of wheat. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet with a puckering aftertaste that is paired with some weird yet thin tartness on the tongue. The palate fuses a medium body, thin and slick texture, and an average carbonation.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Stamped Best By 11/2/14. Ok it ,looks alright with its pale yellow color and quick lasting fizzy white head. But after that it does not appeal to me much. Probably simply the style. Aroma of passion fruit and maybe a touch of malts. Light body. The taste is way too fruity for me. It tastes more like a fruit drink rather than a beer. There is this odd peat moss after effect.
