The taste of this beer was exceptional, tasting the passion fruit added to the flavor.

A beer that is seasonal, yet not only lasts to memory.. but to memories. Its complexity covers your tongue as you swish it around your mouth. The flavors come at you like a Swiss army knife, because there is variety from every angle of the flavor spectrum. Its like thanksgiving dinner in the Tortugas while your beaching it with your cornucopia of flavors. The lime peel and coriander assist the passion fruit to sneak into this cerveza inspired bottle of tangy funk I would like to call wildy infused beer science. Its like a tweeked up version of a sour beer with a mexican beachy beer cocktail get-up with some fruity wheat smells of art. It's a twerked up beer on steroids, that brings me back to that first memory... of my first sip.

Poured on draft into a room temperature tulip pint glass.

A: Pours a hazey straw with a foamy white head which settles somewhat but maintains decently with nice lacing. A good-looking beer.

S: Smells of tart citrus, lime zest, coriander, spices and what I thought was pineapple but ended up being passion fruit.

T: Notes of lime and herbs with a little spice. Very alive on the palate with zesty, refreshing flavor. A little fruit sweetness on the back end.

M: Smooth, medium body with good carbonation which lends a crispness to it despite the presence of fruit puree.

O: 5 Rabbit strikes again. I've never had a wit like this and would gladly drink more. The citrus is refreshing, the carbonation comes through nicely and the passionfruit comes through without being cloying or artificial. I honestly don't understand the tepid reviews for this beer; it's a fantastic twist on the style and is a great outdoor beer.

Smooth citrus without getting too sweet and the spice rounds it out. If I'm sitting in the sun all day, this is the beer I want with me.

Very tasty but seems far from a witbier. no flavors associated with the witbier style here but a seriously delicious offering nonetheless. Passionfruit forward.

8/14...pours hazy translucent yellow, light white foam layer. Lime, lime peel, wheaty nose. Fruits too. Tart lime wheat flavor. Spices blended in, but the lime citrus controls. Fast flavor. Quite tasty. Love it.
