Iíve wanted to try this beer for a while and have liked some of their other varieties. The aroma is probably the toughest part to rate. Itís off a bit and doesnít do the beer any favors. Has an almost musty, sweaty, earthy smell. Pours a nice hazy golden yellow with a moderate white head that dissipates pretty quickly and leaves just slight lacing. I appreciate what they are trying to do, but not sure they accomplished it. Has lots of citrus and spice on the tongue that finishes with some exotic flavor. Not sure if itís passion fruit, but itís not bad. I probably wouldnít seek this one out, but it is a refreshing light wheat hybrid with exotic flavors that would be good over the hot summer. I give 5 Rabbit all the credit in the world for trying new things with exotic Latin flavors.

On tap at Comida in The Source. Yellow-green and hazy appearance with a diminishing head. Tropical, fruity and refreshing with light spices and hints of breaded malt. Light bodied and easy to drink. Nice.

Poured a yellowish color from the bottle with aromas of light clove, passion fruit, some lemon, and a touch of malt. Flavors were light passion fruit with some lemon, clean malt, a light spice in the aftertaste, solid.

Bottle. Hazy pale straw yellow pour with a smallish white head. Nose is kinda unremarkable but the mouth is a pleasantly fruity (passion fruit), mildly tart, light creaminess on palate, refreshing.

BiereLuc (1170) - Montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Jaune paille, trouble au possible, peu mousseuse. Nez de lime avec une pointe de coriandre. En bouche, la lime, de pair avec la coriandre, donne une saveur surprenante de... RHUBARBE! Oui, cíest exactement Áa! Pour le fruit de la passion, on repassera, mais pour líoriginalitť et le feeling de rhubarbe, je jubile un peu.

Pour is a murky yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a big fruit. I donít know if itís the hops or the touch of passion fruit but this is plenty fruity. Flavor is a bit sour then some tropical fruit juices. Finish leaves a bit of the sour fruit juices on the tongue. I could not drink a lot of this as it is way sour but having one really cleanses the palate with the fruit and high carbonation.

BeerBunker (956) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Looks like a vodka and orange juice. I donít know how else to describe the color. Aroma is of citrus, especially lemon, with wheat and some spice. Smells very fruity. Taste is big on the citrus, but not very acidic. Lots of wheat. Has a nice spicy character as well. Very earthy. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is very carbonated and goes down easy. Just very easy to drink, and it tastes good.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
A hazed golden wit with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, very nice sweet fruity biscuit malt with loads of orange pulp, coriander notes, flowers, very fragrant. In mouth, a superb mix of tropical fruits, papaya, feijoa, guava, cloves and coriander, very nice and refreshing. Bottle at Mondial 2015.
