look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with about two fingers of head, settles to less then one finger while drinking. Light banana yellow color that is very murky, no visibility through the beer. Active carbonation while drinking.

Smell: Lemons and Lime dominate. Comes off as a doughy bready aroma. Some bubbly yeast character and wheat accents. Leafy greens on the undertones. A little single dimensional though, could use some more complexity on the wheat tones, the lemon/lime comes on too strong.

Taste: A slight watery wheat front. The high carbonation creates a bright feeling on the palette. A little weak but picks up with a bitter body of citrus fruits. Again the lemon and lime dominate. The finish is a funky sourness which lingers on the palette for a while.

Mouthfeel: Sour. The high carbonation really comes through strong as well.

Overall: A decent brew. I got to try a sample size at work and sprung for a six pack. A good summer drinker that has very bright fruit accents which can be a nice change of pace for summer beers.

Cloudy golden, with thick fizzy head of white carbonation. Sudsy, insubstantial lacing.

Nose is sweet wheat and a rush of floral, citrus, and tropical fruit. Very nice and unusual.

Taste is very malt-forward, with accents of mango, passionfruit, and plenty of lime. This is a tropical fruit-oriented wheat beer that would go down perfectly in a warm weather situation. Easily sessionable, and an enjoyable, unique brew.

Is this what Corona would taste like if it were good? Poured into a glass from the bottle, the beer was a golden color with a slight white head. The aroma is immediately noted with a big hit of lime. Unlike some beers made with lime by the Big Boys, the lime does not seem synthetic or candy-like in the aroma. This was a good initial impression. In the initial taste, one detects lime, wheat, and an occasional note of more bitter lime like rind. There is a definite sweetness, yet the beer finishes dry. One may even catch a note of more exotic yeast dancing across the center of the tongue. The carbonation would seem to be incline to erase the lime note, but the citrus is strong enough to linger for a few moments. Overall, this would be a great warm weather beer or an excellent partner to Mexican food.
