4.15/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
From 10/30/13 notes. Had this on tap at Blind Tiger in NYC at their Avery event. PRetty expensive for an 8 oz glass.
a - Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of passion fruit, tropical fruits, fruity malts, spice, pineapples, juice, and light floral and citrus notes. Awesome nose; the passion fruit comes through huge and give it a great tropical fruity nose. Love it.
t - Tastes of fruity malts, wheat, grains, tropical fruits, passion fruit, spice, yeast, and citrus. Nice taste for sure, but not as sweet as the nose and less tropical fruits, and passion fruit, in general compared to the nose. Good but a step down.
m - Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Perhaps a touch too carbonated but otherwise really good and easy to drink.
o - Overall I liked this one a lot, and it is definitely a beer you could have more than one glass of. Easy to drink and light with a great tropical fruity nose. Worth checking out and would love to have again, especially if you like witbiers.

Served on-draught into a stem-tulip at the Verdugo Bar in Silverlake, Los Angeles. Reviewed from notes taken during Verdugo's anniversary event. Due to the nature of the event (standing room only with few surfaces), I wasn't able to review as in-depth as I'd like. Expectations were high given the brewery and description.
A: Pours a two finger wide head of beige colour. Soft complexion. Fluffy and luscious. Head retention is great - about 6-7 minutes. Smooth texture. Great lacing and "legs" as the head recedes.
Body colour is a cloudy murky yellow. Poor vibrance; it's dull - kind of disheartening for a witbier. Nontransparent. Low translucence. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Passionfruit, mango, tropical fruit notes abound. Clean malts, wheat, clean barley. Floral and fruity hops. Lightly grassy. Pineapple. Crisp and refreshing as hell. I love the interplay between hops and fruit. A delightful aroma of moderate strength.
No yeast character is detectable. No clove. No alcohol.
T: Passionfruit is obscenely evocative here. Body is comprised largely of clean wheat and barley. Spritzy and refreshing. The floral and fruity hop notes complement the tropical fruit quite brilliantly. Really well balanced. Good complexity for the style; it's a unique approach to a witbier. Well put together. The fruit is a highlight for me personally; masterfully executed. Really a tasty beer with superb depth of flavour.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Refreshing. Excellent execution, with good body and thickness. Complements the flavour profile very well. Quite well done.
Dr: Extremely drinkable. I could happily down this all night, by the growler even. An excellent and unique witbier form Avery. I'd definitely get this again and would recommend it to friends. Hides its ABV very well. Really good stuff. Try it if you see it.
