Looks somewhat like a radler blended beer cocktail, little chalky - needless to say, the fruit dominates. Nose is reminiscent of a popsicle or candy. Lively carbonation lends the slight tart tinge a hand in coming to the fore, whilst there is an almost yoghurt drink follow through within the texture here. A little lighter than I might like overall but an interesting brew all round.

For warmer days, or as an accompaniment to a nice heat laden Mexican meal, this is a nicely put together change of pace type beer.

100% hazy pineapple color. 3 fingers of fluffy, soapy head.

Aromas of lime, agave, citrus, wheat, and coriander.

The flavor doesn't quite come through 100%. A lot of lime juice, some straw, funky tequila soaked citrus, hay, barnyard, and wheat. It's just...odd. It's not disgusting, but it's a face-twister.

Feel is on point, it's got a nice wit sharpness with a dry character hidden in there somewhere.

Overall, it's not something I'd revisit even if I had the opportunity.

Nice fruity tang to this beer. Would be great by the pool in the summer!

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.

Criminally underrated, excellent summer wheat beer. Golden-orange, hazy with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is on the lighter side, floral, fruity, grassy wheat. Super refreshing and easy-drinking, passion fruit juiciness, citrus, maybe some salt or am I imagining that?. Creamy mouthfeel, juicy with a tiny hint of tartness.

12oz bottle poured into a chilled pint glass.
Hazy light yellow colored body with thin and quickly disappearing head.
Aroma is grassy/earthy, is that passion fruit? I am not familiar.
Tart lemon flavors are refreshing and clean. Feel is light. Finish is salty and dry.
This goes well with lots of food.

Not distinguished looking and smells as much as fruit juice as it does beer... but still pleasant.
Taste and feel win bigger points for managing to be both tart and hoppy with a dry finish.
The dry finish somehow makes it go better with spicy food, in this case an Indian masala.

With one of its owners is the noted "second generation" beer writer and consultant Randy Mosher, they do lots of interesting things and seem to target their niche of making beer that goes with Mexican and spicy food. I intend to try more from this brewery and study it a little closer (including visit it.)

12 oz bottle. Pour is very hazy lemon-flesh yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet rock candy-malt, faint lemon notes, and light floral notes. Flavor is faintly tart with hints of lemon, light topical fruit notes, faint floral hops, and a slightly salty finish.
