I truly love this wheat ale. Most fruity beers sacrifice abv, but not this one. The look is of a typical wheat ale, and the smell & taste are wonderful! I wish they sold it near Chattanooga, but am pleased it is available when we got to Disney World!

Appearance – No head on a yellow, slightly hazy body.

Aroma – Passionfruit, raspberries, slightly sour.

Taste – Passionfruit, a little sour, light wheat malt but hard to find.

Mouthfeel – A little viscous for a wheat beer, not quite cloying.

Overall – An interesting flavor blend, I liked it.

The ol' homegirl Trudie picked up a 6 pack of this stuff for me. Pours a dark yellow color, 1/2" off white head. Aroma was grain and some fruit juice.

Taste is more of the same, fruit juice and beer, together at last. Its relatively light bodied as it should be with the % of wheat being used. Isn't much in the way of contributions from hops or yeast to the flavor of the beer. Carbonation was good. To me its just another dumbed down simple fruited beer aimed at the more restrained peeps. These are good beers to have around when someone doesn't want a hoppy beer or a heavy beer. Just bam, here you go, this should be easy drinking enough for you, prolly goes better the warmer it is outside.

Decently tart, pretty close to the puckering level of it. Doesn't have the foamy or thick texture of a wheat beer, more light than that. Can definitely taste the passion fruit and strangely, almost as strong is the tea taste, a little strong and not as well balanced as the kush beer varieties from ale industries. Okay kcal count at about 160.

Nabbed a can at a Trader Joe's in Austin, TX for $1.67 USD plus tax.

Artificial passionfruit extract/artificial flavouring. Soft wheat. 2-row. Slightly tart.

Certainly refreshing. Light-bodied, smooth, wet, soft, luscious, and approachable without any faults (e.g. booziness, astringency, etc.). Well-carbonated.

A tasty wheat ale with an artificial fruit flavour that kind of works. Drinkable and enjoyable, but shallow and simple as well. Crowd pleasing work from Green Flash, but it won't dazzle discerning drinkers.

6/25...pours pale gold, light foam patches, but faint. Strong citrus sour. Punchy. Simple fruity taste, light sour, wheaty close. Crisp finish. Blends nicely with the malt. Creamy. Nice blend in the mouthfeel.
