UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Very interesting take on Witbier. The lime and passion fruit work. If you like witbier then you’ll enjoy this. Refreshing and good for summer. Fruity but not too sweet. I’m not so in to witbier but I still thought it was decent. Has that wateriness that many witbiers have. Serving: Bottle

Keg at Radio Maria. Hazy greenish yellow, thin creamy white head, good retention. Aroma of passion fruit and wheat. Taste is dry lime, passion fruit, wheat. Thin, refreshing, good for what it is.

Good wheat beer for the summer. However, is an acquired taste that takes a little taking to from traditional wheat beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

8/25/17. 12oz bottle. I swear I’ve had AND rated this before, but oh well. Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head. Tropical fruit aroma, hint of spice. Good flavor, tropical fruits, spice, cream. Tasty.

Decent. Average witbier and it’s what you would expect. I didn’t get much spice.

A very solid wit bier. Like a beligan wit, but the yeastyness is understated and a splash of fruit tops it off. Tried at Bad Apple in Chicago in 2017 with Josh, Brandon and Dave.

JPDIPSO (6317) - Wauwatosa, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Cloudy straw color with a modest off white head and loads of chunks in the last few ounces of the pour. Tropical fruit and sweet sour (rhubarb) scents. Light sweet start that is quickly washed away by a citric/sour punch. Hints of spice and lime. I really didn’t think I would like this one, but it is a quenching summer fruit brew that I’m actually going to finish. 1/14

Hazy golden with a large white foamy cap. Big spicy citrusy nose that’s earthy and herbal but also has a lot of semisweet orange peel bitterness and coriander and black pepper. Crisp and gently tart flavor that’s orange citrusy, peppery, wheaty, passion fruity and crisp. Really kinda neat and fruity and gently tart.

Bottle - small foamy head, hazy medium straw color, good size fruity (passion fruit apparently) aroma and flavor, medium wheat backbone, mild yeasty spice in the finish, very refreshing and pretty good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours cloudy orange. Smells lemonade. The palate is light and crips. The taste is lemon. And a little fruity. Malty sweet finish with a little tartness.

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
