Passion fruit gives this beer an exquisite aroma, which sadly doesn't carry over so well to its flavor. Flavor is a little sweet tart. Body's a touch thin; Overall not too bad. Been waiting a long time for someone to use passion fruit in beer.

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.
