COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve kicked it up a notch by adding a tropical twist to this refreshing ale. Get amped on Passion Fruit Kicker—a jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, smooth brew with sweet, tart, fruity flavor. We layer passion fruit tea and passion fruit juice with wheat malt and 2-row malted barley to bring you this exhilarating crowd pleaser. Your palate will do a 360 for more of this luscious wheat ale. Appearance—Hazy pale yellow with white beer foam. Aroma—Passion fruit pungency and fruit Belgian yeast esters similar to bubblegum. Flavor—Flavor has a prominent sweet tart passion fruit character that mingles with the Belgian fruit bowl esters. Note: This is different than the previous beer under this name which was a higher gravity ipa with brett blended with a wine barrel aged beer.

Pours cloudy yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma is passion fruit and light lemon citrus. Flavor is light and fruity with mild spices. Falls a little flat on the back end but otherwise very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy amber with low white head. Aroma of passion fruit and tropical fruit juice, artificial and candy like. Taste is mellow tart, passion fruit sweet, mild funky finish. Light and crisp body with average carbonation.

Aluminum can from Carnival: Poured a hazy glowing yellow colored liquid topped with a thick monstrous sizing of foam head which took a few minutes to fizz down. Aroma is fruity and smells like a fruit smoothie that included exotic fruit such as passion fruit, kiwi, and guava. The flavor taste like fruit juice fused with a zesty strain of yeast that makes this drink like some kind of protein rich health drink. Anything but a satisfying fruit wheat beer, but then again it did have a warning: luscious & tart labeled on the can. Ratings reflect how low I thought of this beer in flavor.

12oz brown bottle. Hazed yellow appearance, holds a small creamy white head. Nose is packed with passion fruit. Taste is tart, juicy passion fruit, other tropical notes, dry wheat base. Light tangy finish. Wow, very good, should have picked this up earlier, this would have killed it in the summer heat.

Took some work to get 12 oz can into pint glass. Lots and lots of head. Hazy yellow color. Good head retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is amazingly fruity. Smells great, almost unlike beer. Mango, tropical fruits (passion fruit), just about any tropical fruits you can imagine are in this. No hops. If anything, light tartness in aroma, breaks up sweetness. All that, and some wheat malt backbone.

Taste is light tart at start. Then becomes sweet and tropical. It's fresh, it's fruity. Continues light tart throughout. Lots of sweet tropical fruit, and tart also.

Mouthfeel is light. Nice carbonation. It's soft and wet. Kinda like biting into a fresh tropical fruit of your choice.

Overall, is it a good beer....not so much. But it is delicious, and it is highly drinkable. Lots of flavor, lots of fruity stuff. Very enjoyable, although it's nothing memorable. I'd drink it again, buy it again. I might or might not recommend it, depending on the person.

AgentAle (1853) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2017
Aroma is tart, citrus and field berries. Tastes is a light funk and earthy body fairly well balanced. A fair bit of funk but it mellows out nicely.

Plenty of passionfruit in the aroma, along with a bit of spiciness. The taste is tart, with lemon, more passionfruit and spices and even a bit of saltiness.

Taster pour at Craft Brew Race New Haven. Appearance is clear, dark yellow/light brown, light sparkle, finger-width head, small lacing. Aroma is strong, sweet passion fruit. Taste is not as delicious as the aroma as the tart aspects of the passion fruit overpower the sweet. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, soft carbonation and more tart than sweet finish. Overall, this is true to the nature of the passion fruit and I appreciate the mix of tart and sweet, but could have used a little more sweetness for my taste.

Tmoney99 (15135) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2017
Can. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium fruit sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Aroma: passion fruit, wheat, banana Taste: well balanced flavor of wheat beer from the start. Passion fruit moderste intensity in the middle and increases towards the aftertaste Easy drinkable
