i need help parsing this..

For example, active man heard a message - VOICEMAIL I think? I see it's a homonym with 'man' for 'Mail' but how is 'Voice' parsed, or am I completely wrong?

Grammar? active voice as opposed to passive voice?

I'm not sure these are correct but if they are I need the parsing explained..

One way to brew ales for parish event - JUMBLE SALE? (Parish event) I can see 'Ales' = 'Sales' (Anag.) but the rest..

Unfortunately ensnared in forest - ARDENNES? (Forest) I can't parse any of this at all so perhaps it's wrong.

Sharp point made about passion fruit - TANGERINE? (Fruit)

One way to brew something would be to jumble it up. hence, jumble ales gives jumble sale.

sharp point - tine
passion - anger.
