First had: on tap at Wicked Weed, Asheville

Hazy golden-orange pour with a small white head that receded to a ringlet, and spotted the glass with lacing. Fruit-forward in the nose, as would be expected, passionfruit, mango, orange, floral hops. More of the same in the taste, tropical fruits (mainly passionfruit of course), citrus, herbal and floral notes, and some hints of saison yeast, but if it wasn't in the name, I'd probably have some difficulty IDing this as a saison. Light-medium body, soft and pleasant. Very good overall.

On-tap at Wicked Weed Brewing, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is very hazy orange-yellow in color. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Strong aromas of passion fruit are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of passion fruit and also has some hints of ruby red grapefruit.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No dryness is perceptible.
O: I really liked this saison because it delivered lots of aromas and flavors of passion fruit.
