2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, lightly amber and definitely golden coloured body with a very thin, single centimetre off-white head that fades like a soda. Aroma of malt, wine cooler, light fruit and a touch of caster sugar - nothing interesting. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic flavour with hints of earth, caramel, nuts and a touch of fruits, perhaps a smattering of passionfruit, but not much there. Aftertaste shows a malty kick, some light alcohol and a touch of sugars, but not much else and no definite passionfruit flavour anywhere around. Overall, a pretty bad beer with not much flavour and no complexity at all - a very simplex beer throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 01-November-2013 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 05-September-2014.

Drank on 23 Aug 2014 -- Poured into a Kolsch glass (whatever their proper name is). This was a very pleasant beer that paired extremely well with our Tuna appetizer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours gold, thin head. Some hay and malt in nose... Faint citrus. Taste is plain... Some malt and fruit. Nothing over complicated or overbearing.... Light body that feels this at times.

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

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
