Latin-style Witbier brewed with spices and passion fruit. 5 Lizard is a creamy and refreshing wheat beer with some spicy complexity and light touch of passion fruit for a delicious and slightly exotic flavor.

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.

So I grabbed this, uninspired like, just for the tick and to fill out my mix and match sixer. Little did I know it would be one of the more interesting beers I selected. Not that its a great one per se, but hey, some of the other beers were pretty bad. Anyways, hazy dull yellow, modest head. Big fruity nose and flavors, I never ate a passionfruit but this must be full of it. Tropical fruits, sweet, touches of a spicy and citrus character throughout. Semi-dry at the finish though, and balanced. As a witbier, any phenols were covered by the adjuncts, a welcome thing to do. Would one call this a Florida wit?

12 oz bottle courtesy of shrubber85. Bright cloudy yellow color that resembles grapefruit juice. Aroma is still really fresh with limes and juicy tropical fruits.

Flavor is much like the aroma with the juicy tropical fruit and lime with a mild tartness from the lime. Mouthfeel is soft with a mild, subdued spice in the finish. Very refreshing! One of the best in style I have had in a very long time. I wanted more when the glass was empty. And with the ABV so low it would be easy to kill 8 or 9 of these.

Frutada, com cheiro de maracuja, nada mais. Sem graça, sem harmonia. Não vale a pena experimentar.

Pour on tap, hazy golden pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, wheaty notes into a bit of pear, some slight coriander, clove in there, hints of orange as well. Taste is a mix of grass, white fruit, some peach, pear, some hints of spice, coriander, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Pretty tasty.

Sampled at the STL Hops 7th Anniversary Party - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has a bit of melon, pale malt and mango. It has a medium / light body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts with melon, fruity Belgian yeast and citrus. The finish is clean and smooth. Nice wit.

Bottle courtesy of weihenweizen. Passionfruit, lime, wheat malt, and coriander aroma - the aroma was screaming "drink me!" Cloudy yellow with a moderate white head. Wheat malt, lime, passionfruit, and coriander flavor. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly dry finish. I hope I’m able to find more of this one.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Aroma is nice passionfruit, medium body, medium carbonation, and thin small-bubble lacing. Taste is nice passionfruit and hints of coriander. I could crush a bunch of these outside in the summer, If you like passion fruit you should try this.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Taste tart, fruity, funky earthy flavor. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
