Passion Pit is an American Blonde Ale brewed by SaltWater Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a can.
The blonde pours a somewhat clear marigold hue and is topped by a thick cap of puffy white foam that shows modest retention. A smattering of lace clings to the side of the glass and a steady stream of bubbles continuously rises.
The aroma is bright with a scent of tart passion fruit. It’s backed by a hint of musty wheat and yeast.
A taste of doughy bread leads the palate and is mixed with a twist of citrus. A tangy note of passion fruit lingers through the finish.
Its feel is relatively smooth and crisp with a light body and moderate carbonation.
A variant of the LocAle, the Passion Pit’s use of passion fruit makes the palate a little more tangy than tart. Better than its sibling, the malt is allowed more presence, giving this brew a better balance. And this blonde has a really nice flavor for such a low ABV. This session beer makes a really good choice if you’re knocking back a few on a sunny day at the beach.
