Wheat Ale with Passion Fruit, 5.5%
San Diego's Green Flash is more well known for it's hoppy beers (as are basically all breweries in San Diego...), so I was slightly surprised when we first saw Passion Fruit Kicker, a wheat ale, on our beer lists. It pours pretty clear for a wheat beer, and smells rather like a berliner weisse. However when you taste it, you get the full force of the combination of passion fruit tea and fruit juice. A little bit of tartness from the fruit, a little bit of sweetness from the Belgian yeast with a clean and crisp finish. I suppose it's actually more of a summer beer, but I find in these darker months, it's easy to get bogged down in the impy stouts and this is a nice, refreshing alternative.
