3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow pour with white fluffy head. The nose is fruity with hints of grass. Initial flavor is sweet and fruity highlights (mango/passionfruit) over the lighly grainy malt bottom. Slightly tart finish. I’d like more wit yeastiness to show through in this style...but I enjoyed this refreshher just fine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale yellow and super hazy. Nose is musty, spicy, orange, bright citrus, orange, and lime. Flavor is musty spice, citrus, tart lime acid rind. Really pretty strange and I’m not sure this is the best mix for a wit but glad to try.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some wheat and coriander notes. The flavor has some orange, wheat and coriander. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light copper with small white head. Aroma of passion fruit and citrus. Light body with sweetness upfront and a nice passion fruit flavor. I would classify more as fruit beer than a Witbier.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Nice and unique, this is certainly a fruit beer...very passionfruit forward. Medium bodied, very easy going, the unfiltered yeasty tones really smooth out body. The lime shows up in the finish. Cool use of flavors. A hint artificial, but I’d go back for another of these.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Fruity, lightly tart and sweet aroma, with hints of lime, orange, coriander, faint honey and wheaty grain, with some doughy yeast notes and peppery spice in the background. Thoroughly cloudy medium dirty yellow in color with a very slight, fading head. Flavor is lightly sweet, citric and gently tart, with touches of passionfruit, clove, lime and lemon, not much in the way of any sort of hop profile, just a touch of bitterness late, which is fine for the style. Thin and low in effervescence on the palate giving a bit of a watery feel, body is light-medium. Not terrible by any means but certainly not something I would seek out.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured out a hazy yellow with an anemic, quickly disappearing head. Aroma was of lime and fruit. The taste was like that of Corona with a little more spice complexity. I expected a little more wheat in my Witbier. Hops were equally citrus in effect. Probably good on a hot day. I’ll be struggling to finish the 6 pack.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is under rated, and offers a great deal to the right pairing.
Aroma was mostly citrus, and bubblegum, appearing pale, hazy and sparkling. While the head was big bubbling large white froth, tasting lightly sour but rounded by passion fruit’s notes, with a light body. It was generally fizzy, with a long lime finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle with no date but purchased at Trader Joe’s, so hopefully pretty fresh. Pours with a nice head into an old school Hoegaarden tulip glass. The head fades quickly and completely dies. No lacing, no nothing left over. Makes me think there is way too many nontraditional ingredients in this brew. Color is dull golden, its completely murky. Lots of bubbles shooting up to the surfaces, looks like tiny mosquitoes hitting a lake on a hot summer’s day. Pretty whack looking actually. Now, the beer is super cool and novel. Simple puts its a limeade/beer mix. one could look at that as a good thing or a bad thing. I really like it. Aroma is full of fresh limes, citric, fresh, and lively. Maybe some coriander. Flavor is similar but a sweet, not well attenuated beer. However, a great tart and refreshing lime aftertaste. Cool stuff. I like it, this is way better than any radler, all radlers should be this.
