Picked up an unmarked 12oz can from an undisclosed source for no cost - thank you! Poured into a standard shaker glass.

Appearance is an extremely unfiltered golden hue, frothy white head, decent retention, no lacing. Aroma has tons of tropical fruit up front, especially pineapple and lime, light spice aroma. Flavor follows aroma, and man does the copious amounts of wheat work well with all the esters from the yeast and addition of fruit - the tartness keeps all those flavors in check - great balance. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing with good effervescence, creamy body with a crisp finish.

On tap:
All head say at the edge of the glass in my pour, but it was a nice thin foamy white line. Very light lacing. The beer itself is cloudy yellow, marred a bit by a slight infusion of orange color, perhaps. Nose is powerfully fruity, tart - if you aren't as confudent in your experience with passionfruit (as I am not), it is on the tart side and could be sour apple, kiwi, some jolly rancher watermelon. It's actually unique, but that's the best I can come up with.

Taste is quite similar, but the carbonation adds a somewhat flat Sprite-like overall impression. Passionfruit flavor is a little more obvious in taste. The wit side of the beer is a bit lost in its fruity nature.

An interesting fruit beer. I think it could grow on me. It has some aspects of a sour, definitely those if a fruit beer, and in the end, I think I can get some hints of clove. Definitely not for all.
