Jacobins Passion Max is a spontaneously fermented beer made with lambic and Mediterranean and exotic fruits including passion fruit. Its flavour is truly unique: soft, rounded, fresh and most of all fruity. When you poor it into a glass, you canít miss its exotic fruit aroma. Its original Mediterranean straw colour appears as soon as you poor this beer into a glass: a delightful refreshing impression!

Ingredients: water, barley malt, unmalted wheat, fruit juice (25%, including passion fruit), fructose, hops, yeast, sweetener (acesulfame K), flavorings.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2016
250 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 04.01.15. ABV is 3.2%. Orangeish-pinkish colour, moderate off-white head. Aroma of artificial peach candy and tropical fruits. Very sweet flavour, strong notes of sweet and sour tropical fruits, again notes of artificial peach candy. A bit too far out on the weird side.

10-SEP-2015, bottle @Brussels appartment, with UlklÝbben. Hazy rhubarb color, no head. Aroma and taste is passion fruit. Sweet fruit. No funk or tartness. Actually not a lot of beer here. Just a nice and fruity drink.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 Further expansion of the Max theme, stemming from the Jacobins brand of Bockor ílambicí or lambic derivatives. This one is an amber coloured, light summer beer made with passion fruit extract, which is nearly all that the nose gets; lemonade-like, very sweet taste totally dominated by the artificial passion fruit, slight tartness but cloying nevertheless. Like many other light, overtly sweet fruit beers, only suitable for people who donít really like the taste of beer.

0.25l bottle. Actually been trying to avoid this for a while, but I guess I have to drink it st some point. Pours a cloudy really warm peach red body with a small quickly sidesticking white pinkish head. Smells sweet and sugary with lots of sweet fruity nuances. Sweet cherries, lychee, passion fruit and peaches. Lots of sweetness, but itís still not way over the top. Itís actually not as bad I had feared. Yeah itís sugary and sweet as heck in the mouth but itís still drinkable. Or sip-able at least Like how the artificial sweet fruits comes through in the taste. Not directly cloying, but it contains a lot of sugar. A herbal bitterness help kinda balancing it a tiny bit, but Iím glad this is a small bottle. 27.02.2014

250 ml bottle. Slightly unclear orange body with a fast disappearing white head. Aroma is artificial like wine gums. Flavor is way too sweet, artificial sour candy fruit. No bitterness and no beer flavors. Medium body and aftertaste with the same flavor as the rest. I thought they have stopped ruining the lambic reputation like this by now?

250ml bottle at home. Pours hazy pale cherry, no head. Aromas are low-fat generic fruit yoghurt, passion fruit in there, also grapefruit and peach melba. Taste is sweet, with a faint memory of sourness. Coats the tongue with something. Not very good.
