3.78/5 rDev +8.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Unmarked bottle at 42 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of coriander (weak) and some unidentified tropical fruit (strong)
Head small (2 c m), off white, fizzy, quickly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Body light yellow, hazy: bright yellow sediment in bottle
Flavor surprisingly tart with a fruity flavor which unfortunately ends quickly.
Palate light to medium, watery, carbonation lively
Being part reptile, the name alone made me try this beer. I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor, not knowing what passionfruit tasted like, and always enjoying a little lime in my beer. The tartness of the brew surprised me as well; I was expecting the sweetness of a weisse, not the tartness of a Berliner Weisse. This is a brew I’ll try again, despite the lack of head and lacing.

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.
