In this special beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Green Flash Brewery. It is their Passion Fruit Ale. If you have read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this California base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this west coast craft brewery. Let us get into this fruit beer.
It has a cloudy yellow color without a head. The smell has a heavy passion fruit notes. The taste has a heavy passion fruit notes with a slight tart aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.greenflashbrew.com):
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.

In the end, I am not into the fruit beers as much. Fruit beers have been around for many years. These beers normally pop on the market during the summer months. There is a nice balance and it is a pretty drinkable beer. I am happy to see them picking passion fruit. There is too many blueberry, orange, etc on the market. There is not too many passion fruit beers on the market. It is a great beer just not for me. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
