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.

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 (14869) - 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

3.5
Bebum (1062) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Hazy straw. Medium body, smooth texture, intense flavors, rich but lively mouthfeel, nicely carbonated, average length. Moderately bittersweet, refreshing in acidity. Fruity, resiny, floral. Delicious, interesting character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a can poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a fruity finish.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 On draft at iTap Kansas City. Aroma 6/10: slightly bready and sour in the nose, not necessarily in a fresh way. Appearance 3/5:,hazy golden with little to moderate he'd retention, but still pretty served in a tall hef glass Palate 4 /5: solid carbonation, full mouthfeel. You definitely feel like you ate tasting this beer. Taste 6/10: I'm a little torn on this beer. I like the mouthfeel a little too, its wheaty and there's a nice fruity tartness. But that tartness turns into a sour, almost overly ferment, off flavor as it sits on the palate. Overall 13/20: finishes a tad too tart and not so good funky to me. The passion fruit ends up feeling a little rotten, which lowers this rating for me. Final: 3.2/10

This is good... assuming you like passion fruit. Slight tartness in the finish, but clearly not a sour beer.

The passion fruit is more noticeable in the bouquet, rather than the taste. Refreshing for Summer nonetheless.
