Share This Review

Passion Fruit Kicker is an American Wheat Ale brewed by Green Flash Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a wheat beer glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a mostly-cloudy golden yellow and is topped by a thick cap of fluffy white foam that shows modest retention. A smattering of residue clings to the sides and a soapy collar rings the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is tartly sweet with a scent of passion fruit and a hint of grain.

Flavor

The palate begins with wheat bread and a light citrus and transitions to a puckering squeeze of passion fruit. Backed by more wheat.

Mouthfeel

The ale is smooth and crisp with a medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Finish is somewhat dry and mildly astringent.

Overall

Bitterness is very mild but the fruity tartness lends balance to the wheat bread. Appearance is lackluster. Aroma is nice. The Passion Fruit Kicker isn’t the most interesting brew but it is light, refreshing, and easily quaffed. A good brew to have on hand for the less-discerning craft beer drinkers. But it’s not a bad brew for the connoisseurs either.

About the American Wheat Ale

The American Wheat Ale is similar to the German Hefeweizen but it has more hops and less yeast. Its color ranges straw to gold with varying clarity. Although the style typically uses less wheat than the Hefeweizen, its clean fermentation allows for a variety of wheat flavors with a complement of hops. Its feel hovers around medium or a little below with ample carbonation. The American Wheat Ale is similar to the American Blonde Ale, but utilizes Wheat instead of the typical Two-row Pale.
