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.

3.9 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.
