First had "Passionfruit Devil" poured from 12-oz. can into pilsner glass. With both sharp (orange peel) and sweet and round fruit additions (liliko'i), this is a very bold, fruity Belgian white ale.

Nice golden hazy milkshake look to this brew. Quickly dissipating off white head from my can pour. Passion fruit sweetness and malt on the nose. Wow, a bit sweet in the flavor department. Flavors of peach, pineapple and passion fruit with zero bitterness to counter. Slight Belgian yeast and maybe a slight initial bite when I dig deeper. Full of carbonation and a bit syrupy. Overall, a bit too sweet.

Awesome beer, my current favorite flavor!
Strong notes of tropical fruit and strong taste of spice, sweet yet not too sweet, little to no bitterness, satisfying tart finish.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: The Bruery 6-oz. taster
From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $2.42 (10 pct. off with a variety 6-pack)
Purchased: July 7, 2017
Consumed: July 8, 2017
Reviewed as: Witbier
Misc.: Canned on April 18, 2017 at 9:20 a.m. MT; Split with my wife

Picked this one up as part of a variety 6-pack at Bine & Vine, landing me 10 percent off overall. Had been wanting to try this for a long time, but didn’t want to spend the $11.99 (at least) for a 6-pack. Was happy to see it in single-can form.

Poured a gold, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white fizzy head, which dissipated quickly. Some bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Average watery lacing. Decent watery retention. (Sight - 3.25)

Smelled juicy peach, apricot, nectarine, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, cloves, herbal and dry grass. (Smell - 4.50)

Taste followed the nose. Got peach, nectarine, apricot, passion fruit, sugary pineapple and mango. Not sure of hops, but would guess Mandarina. Tropical juice galore. (Taste - 4.50)

Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, juicy finish. (Feel - 4.50)

Wow, this was tremendous for a Witbier. Best Witbier I’ve had by a mile. (Overall - 4.50)

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a Weissbier vase; canned on 03/22/17.
A: Pours a hazy, bright golden color with a one inch, white head.  Low retention and limited Belgian lacing.
S: Toast and orange/mango aromas, which do not persist well as warms.
T: More sour than tart with added passion fruit overpowering virtually all other flavors.  This tastes more like a Gose than a Belgian style IPA.  Minimal bitterness and perhaps a bit salty (?).
M: Medium bodied, light effervescence.
O: Alternately described at a Belgian style IPA and a “fruit added” Witbier in the production notes, this does not really hit either mark and is basically a straight up fruit beer. Interesting idea, less than stellar execution, as aroma transient and flavor balance not quite on.
