They term this a "Hoppy Wheat Beer with inspiration". The inspiration is zest, corn, coriander and other fresh taco ingredients. Tried on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne (and at least once since, although I can't recall where—it may have just been again on a later day of the festival).
Pours a very light golden colour with solid hazing. Body is light, but with a heft to it. Head is creamy and full and pure white. Lace forms in pleasant thick sheets with some bubbly elements. Carbonation is hidden in the haze.
Fragrant and bright on the nose: slightly herbal, but spicy as well—indeed perhaps some coriander, but also plenty of zesty citric hops. It's very vibrant and alive and does work very nicely.
Taste is also excellent. Light, crispy corn characters on the start would be out of place anywhere else, but here they're worked into the rest of the beer brilliantly: coriander, chilli and fragrance, which dance through with a slight mexican spiciness through to the back. This is crisp and mild and again fragrant with corn and coriander. Feel is light but bright—matching the rest of the palate.
This is a very refreshing beer, but also very different and with stacks of character. It absolutely delivered on its promise, and most of all, it's just good damn fun.

Pours amber with a massive head.
Nose shows doughy wheat, wafer bread, herbal coriander, lime and a savoury note. Really does conjure up images of tacos. Some spicy and floral hops underneath.
Less intense flavours. Mainly cornbread with a hit of lime followed by a bit of the coriander.
Carbonation could be a fair bit higher.
Interesting and enjoyable stuff.

Pours a straw colour, huge cloud to it. Basically looks like a witbier. Off-white head, medium thickness. Yeah, looks good.
Tangy nose. Lots of fruity hops with lemon and pineapple dominating. Possibly a touch of coriander and maybe some lime but it could just be a placebo effect.
Taste has a good malt base with a touch of corn to it; tang takes over midway with a big passion/pineapple new world hop flavour. Slightly citric, and then a decent wallop of coriander towards the back. It's mostly tangy and refreshing but a nice twist and kick with those other flavours.
Mouthfeel is slightly disappointing, fizzy and thin. Bit of malt presence saves it from feeling like a soft drink.
Very refreshing, tasty drop. More hoppy than wheat beer or Mexican-infused beer but I'm still a fan.
