Concrete Beach Brewery Tropic of Passion

What the brewers say

“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.”
