This pairs well with seafood. The liliko’i aroma is very pronounced in this brew. It really smells like a fruit drink you might get in Hawai’i. The taste is very similar but invites some tart fruit flavors paired with a subtle wheat body. Finish is tart with lingering fruitiness and low carbonation. Overall, for a fruit beer it’s excellent. You really couldn’t ask more from the style. Try it with breakfast: sunny side up egg, rice, pan fried tilapia, and of course spam...ono, brah!

On tap at OB Warehouse. Slightly peppery phenolic aroma with a light tangy fruit. Murky yellow under a thick, white collar. Flavour starts like a typical witbier, with light phenolics and coriander, but rapidly evolves into a tangy, lightly citrusy passion fruit and grains of paradise. Medium body, moderate carbonation, midway between crisp and smooth.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip snifter. There’s a bit of barnyard funk on the nose early, but it settles into a strong passion fruit, mango, pineapple, and banana fruit with a slight clove and pepper spice and an undertone of bread dough and a touch of soda water. The beer pours a murky banana yellow with a white, dense, thick fluffy soap head that’s active and unstable, leaving only a light retention and a runny lace. The taste is a medium high sweet, medium sour, and a light bitter spice. The texture is slick with a light fizz carbonation and medium light body that’s tart with a fruity and juicy profile containing secondary wheat and pepper flavors. It finishes with a tart tropical fruit juice note and a spice crispness with a sour candy zip. The aftertaste is astringent and lightly cloying with sour candy and banana notes as well as a spice freshness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Tip Tap Room, July 2015.
Hazy pale gold with a small white head that is fully dissipating.
Light passion fruit dryness in the nose with a touch of dry limeskin, wheat and a bit of coriander. Sweetness held in check for the most part, with round bubblegum-like esters on the end. No alcohol, no flaws.
Tart, lightly acidic and quite nicely done on the passion fruit. It’s authentic, not sugary or syrupy and adds a dry, earthy, yet mildly tart fruit flavor. Moderate carbonation, light lactic suggestions, tons of wheat dryness and mild citrus on the finish. No alcohol or flaws noted. Fine.
