(12 oz can, canned on 05/04/2018, purchased warm... poured into a Chouffe tulip)

L: extra-cloudy, peach-colored liquid; tall head formed but collapsed soon after

S: very potent passion fruit on the nose, so much so that it's a bit hard to tell this is a Wit; very potent, fragrant, juicy nonetheless

T: passion fruit out the ass - huge up front, heavy in aftertaste - but with a healthy pop of the coriander in the finish... 'tropical & tart' is quite dead on... the slight hint of alcohol in the background is the only thing that keeps this from tasting like a virgin cocktail... the Belgian yeast eventually inches it way forward, though the base beer is far from in control

F: kind of on the lighter side, but carrying dead weight - bit of a thick sediment-laden midsection... carbonation mild, prickly

O: will probably seek a fresher can and compare... the flavors seem to compliment each other, but shouldn't the passion fruit ought to provide a subtle exotic color to the base beer instead of coming across like a fruit cocktail?... why bother calling it a Wit?

The heavily hazed golden amber yellow beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/4” white head that soon recedes to a thin irregular island of foam, a ring around the glass and some scattered patches of lacing on the sides. Sipping creates scattered patches of lacing. Long before mid-way through the beer there’s only a tiny ring around the glass and a few widely scattered patches of lacing.

The aromas are mostly about the passionfruit (think kiwi, pineapple and just a hint of banana). In the background there’s some coriander and a bit of wheat.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the passionfruit up front as the star of the show. The coriander and grains are in the background as members of the supporting cast. There’s a bit of both sweetness and tartness in the background. There’s also some citrus and spice from the orange peel and coriander.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and very lightly prickly from the moderate carbonation. The finish begins as the fruit and sweetness begin to fade, followed by the citrus and spice leaving the ending to some light, dry, fruity tartness.

Overall this is an easily drinkable and enjoyable beer. While the passionfruit is the star of the show it does not conceal the wheat, malt and coriander, all of which remain in the background. A beer I’d be willing to have again and may even go looking for another. Certainly I’d be willing to have two, maybe more, in a row.

Off the bat this is a super fruity smelling and tasting beer - I guess that's why they call it a "fruit beer". If you love Blue Moon I am sure you'll love this beer - if you love Arrogant Bastard I am sure you'll hate this beer. The overall flavor is like a Lemon Head infused wheat beer - big sour apple notes and some tropical fruits. Not bad if you love white wheat beers. The can has a super cool tiki theme which is partly why I picked this one up. Check it out if you're a big fan of the Belgium Wheat style beers.

Fresh can into a wheatbeer glass. Not a lot of froth or head; minimal carbonation. Color is a lovely clouded yellowish thing. It's a very still beer. Once in a glass, it doesn't move. smells great, tastes excellent. I'll buy more.

Very little head which dissapates a little too quickly...even for my preferences. Smell is or spice and coconut...yes, lots of coconut. Comes on very tart, almost as much as a sour but not quite. Once the tartness dissapates you're left with some coriander and a little orange taste along with a "passionfruity" flavor. I'd describe it as simply a tropical version of the Avery White Rascal with the tartness or the El Gose and a dash of tropical. Best enjoyed cold, in a can, near the beach.
