look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Completely hazy/opaque lemon drop color with a fluffy eggshell white head of 3 fingers. Lots of wispy lace left behind where the head once was.

The typical wit aromas are down under there with strong coriander, wheat, yeast, and clove; but the passion fruit overrides the rest of it, as well as some very leafy/stemmy cilantro notes. After a few sniffs all I smell are passion fruit rinds and cilantro.

Whoa. Super citrusy, fruity explosion with electric tingles of passion fruit, pineapple, and orange. Following behind is the cilantro and herb, yielding a very faint metallic note, and finally OJ.

Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a creamy finish. Slight julius-esque feel to it.

Overall, a super refreshing, super easy wit with lots of flavor and an out-of-the-box approach. Like a Tropicana Wit. Highly recommended by me.

An interesting twist on the wit-style. But, there was too much bitterness for me to want to appreciate the passion-fruit added.

Bought at Kroger's @ Swift Creek - Midlothian, Va 10/1/16. Date on bottom of can 9/3/16 (less than a month old!). 6 pack of cans was $12 plus tax! Amazing find! Poured a cloudy and hazy yellow gold and PUNCH you in the face Fruit, coriander and maybe a little bready malt. Awesome taste - passion fruit and medium amount of tartness but still later the malt (but not much!). Great combo and balance! Under-rated beer! Delicious break from the usual Hop Bombs! Can't recommend this beer enough - Absolutely best summer crush beer! Home Run Guys! Creamy and clean finish in the mouth. One of the best fruit beers I ever had! Beautiful!

Original, well-loved passion fruit wit-beer. But... the fruit juice dominates (and I want beer) and kills the head.

Appearance: Pours a very cloudy pineapple juice colored body with a fragile, faint head disappears and doesnt lace. In the end looks like grapefruit juice.

Smell: Passion fruit, pineapple with hints of wheat, grass, yeast, banana and coriander.

Taste: Tart passion fruit juice dominates, with pineapple sweetness a following wave. As it develops there's a pleasant see-saw of yeast, wit spice, bitter and tangy against the sweet fruit. Complex and original. As A bros wrote - a great Tequila back.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium body with low carbonation; juice like. Try 1.

Overall: A creative beer but still a juice induced flattish beer as all fruit laden beers must be, and I feel about them about as much as I feel about flavored coffee. (meh).

Finger off white head with mixed bubbles that dissipated quickly. Hazy golden yellow in glass. Very little carbonation

Wheat cereal, lemon zest, banana and bubble gum, yeasty on the back with some slight tartness

Citrusy, lemon zest, nice spice, very mild tartness, nice sweer aftertaste

Light to medium feel
Overall very good

12 oz. canned on 06.15.16

Pours cloudy gold with a quickly dissipating frothy white foam head. Smells like big fresh sweet passionfruit, some orange peel, coriander, wheat, crackery grain, banana, clove-like spice, with mild earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like big fresh sweet and tart passionfruit, some orange peel, creamy wheat, crackery grain, coriander, banana, clove-like spice, with mild earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and smooth with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice passionfruit witbier.

I'm not the biggest fan of fruit beers but being a tiki-phile I had to pick up a can of this beer based on the graphics alone. I was pleasantly surprised as to how much I liked this beer. It's fruity and light but not overly sweet or cloying. It was actually quite refreshing to drink. This might be my next go-to beer for drinking by the pool.
