Absolutely LOVE this beer. One of my summer go-to's, so crisp and refreshing. Tons of passionfruit on the nose and it explodes with passionfruit, citrus, some spiciness and zest with just enough tartness to balance it all out. It's so insanely crushable, easily my favorite witbier and I'm super bummed its not a year round offering

The beer bursts out of the glass of tropical fruit. It's straight Tropicana mango, orange, and pineapple juice with a wheaty base and finish.

The aromatics on this are incredible and fruit flavors on the palate follow quite well. On tap, it reminds me of a Funky Buddha beer with its absurd aroma.

This is pretty much my all time favorite Witbier. It smells amazing, passion fruit to the max. The taste totally backs it up. So balanced. A little tart, some dryness to balance out the sweetness. My only complaint is the cost and the availability. If they can figure out a way to do this year round or at least half the year and package it in 6 pack form for $11.99 (4 pack is steep at that price for a 5.2% beer...) I would drink this all summer long and make it a staple.

Thanks so much to my brother Tim for sharing this with me pre-FNM show, enjoyed chilled from the can in a goblet.

The color is golden with light hazed thick white head with very fine bead. The smell has lots of tropical presence -Pure Passionfruit with strong fruit in the nose and mild wheat accent with subtle sweet aroma. The feel is great with tons of fruity texture with a mild tropical taste with juicy and semi-tangy sweet fruity textures with semi-dry finish with moderate carbonation.

The taste has great passionfruit flavor -like you just cut one open and dropped it into the beer with slight tangy juicy tropical quality that is sweet yet the malt flavor of wheat adds depth with a light malt backing to soften the acidity of the fruit slightly with a semi-dry lightly sour finish of yeast. Overall I loved how the fruit dominates this a great tropical wheat -the wit yeast is a perfect fit for the passionfruit, one of the best fruited wheat beers with a ton of passionfruit in the flavor, not just aroma. This is almost Hawaiian-punch like, it is so tangy and juicy you want more after it is gone.

Look: Cloudy, thick, off yellow color.

Smell: Passion fruit up front hint of sweet smells and wheat.

Taste: Not what I expected. Not so much wheat but you get the spices and passion fruit.

Feel: Felt like a tart saison or even a sour. No where remotely close to a wheat which for me was a good thing.

Overall: Super tasty beer loved it!

Really successful, soft-touch deployment of passionfruit to impart this wit with a fresh, punchy, hop-grassy tropical buoyancy. Beautiful, bright nose, bright; dry, sparkling flaxen color; extremely smooth, pleasant, light mouthfeel. Just a clean, lean yet well-structured and sophisticated, super refreshing, tiki-tilting wheat offering—and a pretty perfect hangover beer to boot.

Poured in a pint glass for review purposes, would recommend drinking it from the can. Light foam, cloudy, darker than usual for wit beer.
Very fruity nose, extends to taste, also sharply tart. Super refreshing, one of the beers I was happiest to discover this summer.

On tap at Avery. Pours a slightly-hazed yellow-straw color. Light passion fruit. Quite fruity. Subtle, but absolutely there. Delicious. Super drinkable; had to get a second glass of this one.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Hazy to cloudy opacity with a fine textured head that goes quickly. Aroma is a bit funky in an interesting & good way, exotic, i guess is the word. Flavor is well balanced with the fruit on the wheat beer. Very refreshing. Now for a second with lunch.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Package: 355 ml can.

Appearance - Densely cloudy medium gold.

Smell - Citrus, spice, and more citrus.

Taste - At first sip when it hits your tongue you get the initial wheat ale, then your smacked with citrus, spice, bitter of the passion fruit.

Mouth-feel - This is tart, very smooth though.

Overall - I am not a sour person, I am even here and there on tart but I will say this is a dangerously sessionable beer. It is tasty, refreshing and well balance. You could kill a lot of these on a hot afternoon. I will defiantly pick this up if I see it the next time state side!

One of the best Witbiers I've ever had. The aroma is dominated by the passionfruit followed by orange peel, spicy Belgian yeast and coriander. The taste is very juicy, tropical fruit forward and refreshing. Amazing beer!

Excellent Beer. A great Berliner Style brew with a perfect addition fruit. As the Can States, Tart and Tropical. I cant state the product date of this can but the tartness is present indeed at this tasting. As for the color aroma this and that. Well... The color and clarity is a hazy bright orange and its beautiful. Flavor is so bad that you should ship me all you have.

L - hazy yellowish white amber in color. White head that quickly went away.
S - intense notes of passion fruit
T - very sweet initially with very distinct flavor of passion fruit. Small hints of citrus hops flavor at the tail end but overall a very sweet beer.
F - light and crisp.
O - Avery always impresses. This beer is intense fruity flavor. This paired with a Hawaiian plate lunch would be perfect.

Wow for the style this beer blew me away. Probably the best fruit forward summer beer I've ever had. The Belgian yeast meshes very well with the light tartness of the fruit. I enjoy the banana esters of a Belgian yeast and this beer just melds perfectly. I would definitely load up a cooler of this beer for a long weekend at the beach. Wow Avery... wow.

Destroyed a couple 4 packs recently, winding down with the last can for a review.
Pours a hazy pale gold, nearly opaque, with a frothy head and spotty lacing around the edges.
Aromas of coriander, citrus zest, and a funky tropical note of guava.

Taste is nicely tart with a perfect amount of passionfruit, giving off a fruity tropical vibe, surfing on a smooth wheaty wave underneath. Body is light and crisp, easy drinking and refreshing. A great rendition of a witbier with a tropical twist. Really enjoyed this beer.

Thanks to Thomas & Jenny for the tip on this one!

10 oz. draft at GBD (Golden Brown Delicious), unknown brewing/bottling date, drank over 30-60 minutes out of a tulip glass

A: 3/3 - straw yellow coloration, murky (cannot read or see through), initial eggshell head settles into a retained glass lacing with some carb islands, moderate carbonation for style

S: 9/12 - moderate passionfruit and wheat aroma hits immediately; milder coriander, lemon peel and seeds of paradise; a touch of alcohol in the nose

T: 18/20 - on the front of the tongue, there's a slight bitterness that opens the taste buds and gives way to huge passionfruit flavors; there is a moderate wheat malt character that develops over time and mild alcohol notes; finishes dry and inviting of sip after sip

M: 4/5 - light bodied with high drinkability; moderate-to-high carbonation

O: 9/10 - excellent Belgian wit base with a moderate passionfruit nose and enormous passionfruit flavor; very high drinkability to boot and could really crush this if it was more readily available; I'll go out on a limb and call this my favorite Belgian wit - highly recommended if you can find it

TOTAL - 43/50

Really love the passion fruit in this one! Very nice dose of spice and ample tartness in the sip. Very refreshing and palate-cleansing. Highly recommended witbier!

on tap at blind tiger

A- this thing looks like orange juice it is so cloudy orange. You can't see through it at all. Small white head with modest lace.

S- very tropical, tons of passion fruit, pineapple, mango, papaya. A little bit of sour tartness.

T- tropical fruit dominates, but the tartness helps to balance the beer. Dry earthy spice. Prickly carbonation.

O- Shockingly good version of a wit-esque fruit beer. I recommend you get this if you run into it. Tropical flavors lend themselves very well to this beer.

A decent base witbier. The spices and passion fruit give it a nice mild tartness and modest fruit presence that is similar to a mild gose (although without much hint of the saltiness you'd expect in a gose)

Draft at the tasting room.

Pours a very cloudy and completely opaque pale golden yellow color with hints of golden straw when held to a light.  Looks like a Berlinerweisse with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into lasting ring.  Chunks of lacing left behind.  

Slightly earthy, spicy aroma with a bunch of citrus fruit, bready yeast and banana notes.  Peppery with lemon zest and coriander/clove as well as a ton of citrus.  Lots of lemon peel and the passion fruit really stands out.  

Medium bodied and fuller than expected with a decent amount of dry spice up front that lingers over the bready yeast, banana and promient citrus into a slight dry finish.  Lots of bready yeast and banana complimenting the strong lemon and passion fruit.  This balances the spicy dryness resulting in a complex and very refreshing quaffable beer.

Can. Art is on point. Pours a very hazy apricot color with a thick, white head. Aroma is passion fruit, peach, pineapple and distinct wheat. Also a distinct and pleasing taste. Passion fruit, pineapple, nectarine, and peachy fruit flavor. Wheat and a light pinch of Witbier spice. Finishes with a light tartness that is almost Berliner like but much juicier and cleaner. Light bodied. Love the label art, love the fruit they decided to showcase, love the smell and the flavor. Bringing Witbiers back in style.

Bright yet opaque golden in color with just a wisp of foam. Can't say that I know what passion fruit smells like but this beer brings tropical fruit such as Guava and mango to mind. Sweet fruit is balanced with just a bit of sourness. Creamy mouthfeel with a clean finish. Highly drinkable.

A real surprise. Delicious aroma and taste of passion fruit with crisp, dry refreshment of a well done witbier. Almost a berliner weisse tartness as some noted. Perfect summer drinking but with real complexity to it.
