Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours hazy yellow orange with a small white head. Smells of wheat and citrus. Tastes of bright orange citrus with nice sweet wheat. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a good beer.

L: Hazy almost straw yellow, foamy, glossy.

S: Smells good. Plenty of wheat and yeast. A little bit of fruity juice, peel, and spice to help it along.

T: I like the strain of yeast they used. It's less on the banana and no noticeable bubblegum is how I can tell. It's definitely passionfruity. The juice hits my palate, followed by orange peel, followed by a savory wheat finish colored with coriander.

F: It has a juicy mouthfeel, probably from an actual fruit. It's rather dry on the finish, especially for wheat, a bit tart from the various adjuncts--So juicy and tart would be a good way to describe it--It invites you back for another sip. The ABV is rather high for how light it feels.

O: I don't want to be unfair to this beer. I'm not a fan of adjuncts from the start. I will at least take time to note the difference between adjunct and artificial. There do not seem to be artificial ingredients present. It's plenty fine.

Poured from a tap on a beer wall. Very heady, I/2 glass of foam with with a lemonade colored, hazy body. Very nice aroma/ malted wheat, bananas & tropical fruit. Mildly sour with a hint of bitterness. Very nice flavor: malted wheat, yeast, bananas, passion fruit & lemon. plenty of carbonation. Refreshing & thirst quenching. Excellent.

Quite refreshing on this very hot day! It seems like it's definitely meant to drink cold. An interesting combination of wit and sour styles. The sourness overpowers some of the clove flavors I like in a witbier, but it's good for what it does!

Pours a hazy orange with a 1 inch white head, which slowly fades. Light lacing.

Aroma of sour fruit, orange, banana.

Taste is sour fruit, Belgian yeast, wheat, spice, orange zest.

Medium bodied, light carbonation. Dry, tangy finish.

This seems more like a sour than a Belgian style ale.
