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.

Wow. A wheat beer with a lot of unfermented Passion Fruit juice, it tastes like. If you like Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy, which appears to mix lemonade with beer, this might be the next step for you. Kinda "eh" to me. Yes, it is thirst quenching.

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.

Erzengel (2536) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2014
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

DuffMan (6646) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Golden, clear, cap of white foam. Sweet grainy aroma and flavour. Nearly no fruit character to speak of. Odd. Not good.

Bottle. Clear deep golden color, creamy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of dusty lemon. Taste is hay, straw, light citrus. Very hi carbonation detracts from the flavor a bit.

snoworsummer (2051) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2013
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.

sonnycheeba (3470) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear gold with fizzy head that immediately dissipates. Aroma is bread and cookie malts, light toffee, tropical fruit, and light floral notes. Flavor is thin, bready malt base with some light fruit sweetness and faint floral notes; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Plus amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light malts, a little fruit, and light dough and hops. Flavors all pretty light. Average texture. Not great.

Clear golden colour with a small white head. Weak aroma of sweet fruits. The flavour is sweet fruity. Tiny hints of bitterness and wheat there too. Very mild.

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
