1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (660ml). At Volo, shared with blankboy. Ugh. Poured slightly hazy pale yellow with a huge white diminishing head. Aroma - whoa! - not cool, sugary tropical fruit and metal. Taste is also very fruity, tangy, metallic, thin, sugary, syrupy and harsh. Really wish I hadnít - couldnít finish my half.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. 3 y/o beer that was kept @ the DC fridge. Pours clear light gold with a thin layer of foam. Nose - faint grass, lots of monin-like passion fruit syrup. Mouth - murky, vegetal, some passion fruit. Flat, no carbonation, short finish. Donít like passion fruit in my beer and thus I doubt Iíd like it in its prime.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. The bottle spent the last few years at Dancing Camelís cold storage room at about 0 degrees celsius. Clear golden. Aroma of floral hops, some fruits (a hint of passion fruit) and a bit of oxidized notes. Medium-bodied. Surprisingly still quite decent and even pretty hoppy, canít find too much passion fruit though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally rated February 2006. Bought this limited brew at the LCBO on Rideau street in Ottawa. Created for Valentineís week with passion fruit concentrate. Pours a slightly hazy light golden colour with a great big white foamy head. Retention is also great, and the lace is all over in small patches. Great passion fruit smell with hints of their regular traditional ale. Mildly syrupy mouthfeel. Good sweet start in the taste department, with notes of honey and the passion fruit. Then, leads into a slight grainy and bitter finish. Some grapefruit is also in the finish. Smooth aftertaste. As you all must know by know, I love fruit beers. This one is a first for passion fruit in a brew, and I think it is well-brewed. Not too sweet to gross out the stomach, but not too dull like some fruit lagers/ales.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks Boutip for the strange and obscure beer with passion fruit. Bright straw coloured brew, clear and clean with a very bright white sticky cap. The aroma is bluntly fake on the passion fruit side, wheaty, light grain, a bit perfumy on big swirls and deep breaths - an interesting aroma which is quite powerful that doesnít quite work. The taste is similar with more emphasis on a sharp and tart tangy punch, underlying bitterness. Some cardboard. Syrupy and fake, it is still refreshing due to the tartness. Finishes out with a lingering tart bite. I do like this more as I go just do to the light sour tart character. Not a bad beer yet not a good beer. Youíre right presario - cardboard isnít a fruit! LOL. had to add that.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Insanely exuberant bubbly white head that takes ages to settle on top of a bright yellow body. Faint, dusty fruit aroma, slightly estery. Palate is very overcarbonated. Light tropical fruit on a slightly yeasty pale malt body, very gassy. This wasnít too bad, but the carbonation really hurt it.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Yellow with large porous head. Familiar fruit scent, almost could be raspberry. Flavour; I didnít know cardboard was a fruit. Root and fruit pit bitterness. Not a pleasant beer but might have been better in the winter when brewed.

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with lots of small bubbles within and a large white head and good retention. Aroma of sweet, cloying tropical fruit. Taste is sweet tropical fruit which hides just about anything else. Definitely overcarbonated. Meh.
