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

Scent of dry wheat, citrus, grapefruit, earth, dirt and grass. Taste of grapefruit, wheat, and dry, leafy hops. This is a really solid Wit; it is something I could drink on a regular basis.

Great on a hot summer day, definitely has a lot going on, strong lime and citrus taste up front, with wheaty beer lingering on the tongue afterwards. Almost a bit funky like a brett/sour at times. Grab these guys if you want an easy-drinking fruity beer while still keeping your dignity and not reaching for a bud light lime.....

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.

Arrives cloudy and the color of grapefruit juice, just missing the pulp. Very little head but some scattered lacing.
Smell is a mix of citrus, evergreen and funk.
Taste is grapefruit, Earl Grey tea, malt and a touch of funk.
Body is light, effervescence is mildly tart but overall this is very drinkable, much like a shandy with the fruit up front and the beer behind it. I like it.

Tastes terrible, way too much going on, too much lime, and overall low and for this style of beer. Wish I could give this back to the store.
