3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Very interesting take on Witbier. The lime and passion fruit work. If you like witbier then you’ll enjoy this. Refreshing and good for summer. Fruity but not too sweet. I’m not so in to witbier but I still thought it was decent. Has that wateriness that many witbiers have. Serving: Bottle

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015 BJCP Category: 24A Witbier
AROMA: Lime peel and some passionfruit. Sweet floral notes. Slightly tartness. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Pale banana yellow; extremely hazy. No visible sediment (or CO2). Small white foam almost completely dissipates. 1/3
FLAVOR: Mild tartness (akin to lemonade) up front which grows stronger throughout the swig. Passion fruit and lime are prominent; some coriander spice in the background (this could be considered a fruit or SHV brew). Solid wheat base and pale malt backbone. Innovative for the style. 17/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light body; smooth texture. Crisp, but not spastic. Refreshing with a mild fruity aftertaste. Lot of flavor for only 4.3%. 5/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Tasty, refreshing and sessionable. Controversial for the style. This would be great in cans. 8/10
TOTAL SCORE: 40/50

Passion fruit gives this beer an exquisite aroma, which sadly doesn’t carry over so well to its flavor. Flavor is a little sweet tart. Body’s a touch thin; Overall not too bad. Been waiting a long time for someone to use passion fruit in beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample from notes. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, orange and lemon citrus, light spices, hints of tropical fruit, thin watery, just a one time thing for me.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy, yellowish-green, with a medium, bubbly, white head. The nose is lime, straw, coriander, tequila, and selzer. Relatively sweet, with a light, dry bitterness. Light body, crisp, acidic, and very effervescent. This is an interesting and well made wheat.
