Pale gold, light white head and light lacing. Nose of musky, sweaty fermented fruit, underhopped and husky wheat. The flavor is thin, husky, light carbonation esters. The finish is husky too, spicy tart rotten fruit. Yum!

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours sightly hazed yellow w/ a short lived, medium sized, spritzy spattered froth. Residual lacing is minimal w/ a thin ring and a silky canopy. Aromas of heated rubber peach pits. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are crisp, clean, and refreshing w/ a defined passionfruit popsicle essence. Slight earthy citrus and biscuits. The finish is bittered nicely. Very dry and the flvors are some what muted, even after a little warming.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with a good amount of carbonation and a soapy off-white head. The aroma has clean wheat, light sweetness and hints of lemon and passion fruit. Medium / thin body with way too much carbonation. The flavor is a bit carboardy with some indistinguishable fruit (I assume it is from the passion fruit) and some graininess. Most of the flavors are then completely muted by an onslaught of carbonation. After that leaves there is a lingering spicy fruit taste. Fair beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle enjoyed in beautiful Hawaii. Part of a mixed six pack. Poured a medium yellow with a little bit of orange sunset. Sweetness on the toungue with a little wheat yeast ending. Refreshing. I could enjoy a few of these.

Tasted at the brewery in Kona. Strong tropical fruity flavors in a wheat beer. Sweet and even. Easy to drink in small doses. Good and appropriate for drinking in Hawaii.

12 oz bottle in Hawaii. Very fruity aromas. The Yeasty wheaty aromas that I expected were not there. More fruit on the flavor. Some Wheat twang, but mostly fruity. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale yellow with an orange tint. Disappointingly non-existant fizzy head. Nose opens with the standard tang of an american style wheat beer before opening into a significant amount of citrus. If you’ve ever sipped passion fruit juice, that flavor will be unmistakable, but I believe there’s a helping of some citrus hops backing this as well. If I were a bee, I’d be attracted to the perfumes of this one.
The beer is on the light side of medium-bodied and is a little thin on the palate. It’s malty, dry, and crisp with a short, clean finish. The passion fruit reappears at the end.
As flavored wheat beers go, you can do worse. This might be a good one for your anti-beer friends.
