Bottle, at Encore Liquid Lounge in the Loop. Fruity nose, but different than the usual wit nose. Hazy yellow color, the bottle pour bubbles can’t keep up, leaving a thin scrum of bubbles. But the taste is a big, big surprise: Not a hint of passion fruit, but a slap on the back. Makes for a different kind of fruity tartness. Some lime works in midway through, or sweetened key lime. And the spice? My fall back guess is cilantro or sage. After a summer parade of mild light wits and kölsches, this is a refreshing splash in the face.

12 oz bottle. Pour is very hazy lemon-flesh yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet rock candy-malt, faint lemon notes, and light floral notes. Flavor is faintly tart with hints of lemon, light topical fruit notes, faint floral hops, and a slightly salty finish.

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.

alexsdad06 (8434) - Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2016
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.

GTAEgeek (1845) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2016
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.

Travlr (20303) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Draft. Hazy to cloudy yellow color, thick white head. Aroma of lightly spiced rising bread dough. Taste has grapefruit, mixed spice. Not bad.

ajnepple (4835) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2015
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.

hayduke (4484) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Sampled at GABF 2015. Poured a cloudy yellow with dingy white head. Nose of citrus and spices I think. Medium body. Favor interesting with a lot of spices. I get cloves for sure. Not bad.

burg326 (5253) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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.
