3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, at Encore Liquid Lounge in the Loop. Fruity nose, but different than the usual wit nose. Hazy yellow color, the bottle pour bubbles canít 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 kŲlsches, this is a refreshing splash in the face.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Hazy straw with one finger head. Tart with some limey citrus flavor. Mild wheaty body. Iím a big fan of well done wits, and while this deviates quite a bit from the classic style, itís a tasty, unique brew. Would like a bit more traditional spicing, but well done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon zest, lemongrass, coriander.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
A perfectly fine rendition thatís refreshing to drink thanks to the assertive tartness (almost puckering, but balanced well with the sweetness). The aroma is very lemony / lemongrassy...simple but pleasant enough. An easy quaffer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Passion fruit, coriander, spices, wheat, citrus, subtle funk.
A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Passion fruit, coriander, wheat, citrus.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, fruity spicy finish.
O- At first sight, I expected this to be some shitty low quality brew from some random place. I bought it because I love Witbiers and I saw it had passion fruit so why not. Turned out to be quite good! Like any other Witbier but with definite passion fruit thrown in. If you arenít used to passion fruit it might taste a little off but I loved it. A little strong on the coriander and the lime was pretty minimal, but very very refreshing.
