As a witbier, this one plays the part well; its color is a clouded light yellow, like white gold but a shade darker and still quite pale. The white head, while very foamy, is quite substantial, resting at over one finger tall for some time, and at least one finger for most of the session. Lacing is left in firm, thick rings and webby patching.

The nose has a fruity note and green apple skin, but mostly herb. Herb is very strong, a very particular note almost like basil, and some grass and lime finish out an aroma that's both unusual and intriguing, and one some would find strange.
With the herb, the fruits come out in the flavor, particularly something tropical, while the lime peel adds obvious zest and tartness. Combined with the light body, it is very juicy and refreshing.
Speaking of, it's got the right heft for a wit, light in body with with depth. Crispness goes all the way and remains alongside a firm creaminess.

Serving type: on-tap

3.63/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appears a cloudy yellow golden hue with bright effervescent fine bubbled white head. Fine speckled lacing left behind as it dwindles.

I don't know much about this beer it's a wit with lime instead of traditional orange citrus peel. But other than that it smells, like bready wheat, lime citrus notes are bright and lively, mild fruitiness with spice kicking out some character...again it's aromatic like a light summer citrus perfume.

Flavor zings the palate with lime juice sour character, penetrates to a numbing level of tart and spices on the palate. Extreme tartness with each sip, almost a salty sour like those found in a German gose, it dries the palate out completely with coriander and lime zest...the bottle mentions passionfruit and I'm looking for it but I can't find that traditional tropical fruity citra like character. It blossoms some floral quality definite acidity with the lime zest, and more fruit juice and spice combo in the finish.

Mouthfeel is dry finish, a slightly salted rim glass may help this beer it's margarita like in nature with the witbier/lime hybrid creation going on add the spice character drying things out and this finishes like the desert. Light to medium bodied carbonation carries it all well.

Overall, this beer was drinkable however, I feel it was a challenge for my senses and the palate to contain everything that was going on. A bit of a cluster but at least I enjoyed it, and I plan to do some food pairings with it.
