A - A bit light on carbonation just a 1/4 inch of head that fizzes out very quickly. The beer is standard hazy bright yellow.
S - Smells of mild coriander spice and some fruity yeasts but it has a bit of sour fruit funk which is interesting.
T - Its actually quite good the sour note isn't fierce as expected like a squirt of fresh lemon. The spices are a bit timid and the actual yeast is fruity and inviting. I like it.
M - Light to medium bodied easy to drink.

Overall I am impressed with this beer it is quite good. I would drink it again.

This is definitely an interesting beer. When I saw "cerveza" on the label I thought perhaps it had some kind of Latin American origin, but it doesn't. If it did, I might have given it higher ratings as it would be one of the better beers from the region.

It opens with a mild aroma - almost too weak for the style - that is interestingly pungent of fruit and yeast. The appearance is on the slightly green side of yellow - odd and interesting as well. The taste is all over the place - yeast, fruit, sour, sweet. More nuanced than most of this style. The aftertaste is also mildly fruity and sour.

I like this beer. Had it not been from Illinois I would have been more impressed (but there are loads of great US beer makers).

A - very cloudy yellow-greyish color with an exceptionally thin white head that dissipates to nothing very quickly
S - exotic fruits: lime peel, passion fruit as indicated, wheat, coriander, lemon; different but intriguing
T - whoa lime juice! Passion fruit, coriander, lemon, very tart, tangy, and puckering, nutty wheat, yeast; quite different and refreshing
M - thinner body, lower carbonation, finishes tart and clean, while being semi-dry
O - not terrible but has some issues with carbonation and balance

3.65/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is a pale cloudy lemon juice yellow with a big white head that fades quickly leaving no lace.
Smell is of strong citrus rind with a light bready crackery malt coming through behind the big dose of lemon and passion fruit. Coriander is subdued but there is a pepper scent.
Taste is sweet upfront but then a big tartness of lemon peel and grapefruit. Coriander is very slight on the tongue but tartness is the overall king of this beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy yellow color with next to no head
S: Wheat, cloves and what I'm assuming is the coriander/passion fruit but it just doesn't work quite right
T: Better than the nose. The passion fruit & spices come through nicely along with the wheat but the lime/acidity from it trumps everything. I normally like acidic beers but not this much in a witbeir
M: Acidic, fairly light/crisp
O: Far from a drain-pour but definitely not a re-buy
