ABV: 4.8% | IBUS: 10 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“A del­i­cate, co­ral-tinged wheat ale. In­tense trop­i­cal fruit aroma leads into a full-bod­ied beer that show­cases the tart and slightly sweet in­ter­play of pas­sion fruit, leav­ing you with a dry and re­fresh­ing fin­ish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Highly aro­matic pas­sion-fruit rich­ness. Plenty sweet and tart in the way only pas­sion fruit can give. Lightly sweet back­ground malt is some­what hard to find, as are any hops. Fruit es­ters (melon, berry) blend into the back­ground giv­ing cen­ter stage to the pas­sion fruit.” Fla­vor: “First im­pres­sion is the taste of fresh pas­sion fruit. Fla­vors of mango, pa­paya, lemon, le­mon­grass fol­low. Good un­der­ly­ing base beer with a sub­tle hops bit­ter­ness and sup­port­ive bready malt. Highly carb’d with in­tense fruiti­ness that dances on your tongue. A lin­ger­ing not-quite syrupy mouth­feel and nice lin­ger­ing pas­sion fruit in the af­ter­taste.” Over­all: “Ex­cel­lent aroma and a nice drink­able trop­i­cal-fruit beer that would be re­fresh­ing for sunny sum­mer or spring days. It’s very fo­cused on the fruit. Some may find the syrupy rich­ness a bit much, but this beer is oth­er­wise very drink­able and en­joy­able.”
