Passion fruit juice with a low, warmed-up English muffin and homemade lemonade aromas pour forth from the glass. A low, pale ivory head hovers above a slightly hazy, bright, pale golden color. I'm first hit with flavors of passion fruit juice, and a drying-out mid-palate via a lightly toasted wonder bread character. A clean finish of lemon juice, low peppermint and saline changes the tune. The aftertaste is crisp, very mouthwatering, dry, and fruity with a low Tahitian vanilla extract flavor. The mouthfeel is moderately watery, with low-plus body, cream of wheat creaminess, low alcohol warmth, and medium-plus carbonation, which produces a balanced and sessionable ale. This beer is great if you want to drink a non-syrupy passion fruit beverage.
