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

I was pleasantly shocked by this beer. A friend picked up a random six pack sampler not knowing what I was into, and I ended up trying this a few nights later.

A - Cloudy yellow with a single finger head, effervescent bubbles

S - Lime and citrus, pretty much masks any other flavors

T - Tastes like a berliner weisse, very carbonated, tart acidity (probably from the lime), and a very nice faint hint of passion fruit that just takes your mind off of the lime-yness for a second

M - Total berliner weisse mouthfeel, champagne like bubbles and a nice acidity that make pucker a little

i picked up more of this after trying, it stands out to me because it is not something I would have tried otherwise, but thought it was great.

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.
