12 oz can dated 6/8/18, BIF. Poured into Yakima Valley Hops wide mouthed glass.

Color is bright blonde/gold with a small head of 1/2 finger receding to a ring.

Very nice passion fruit aromas with hints of mango and vanilla cake. Very slight wheat presence at the tail end of the nose.

Good balance on the palate. Nice sharp wheat kernel and a dialed down presence of passion fruit, mango, and peach. I'd actually call them nuances of the wheat more than flavor. Faint sharp spicy hop (spicy hallertau or saaz?) at the back end, and more mango skin.

Feel is buzzing with carbonation, has a light acidity, and is light bodied. Zero creaminess, all carbonation.

Overall a tasty and light wheat beer. Try it as an alternative to your usual summer slam and you might like it.

Very good easy drinking wheat beer. Hint of passionfruit and mango is there but not to much, I would have preferred more flavor. I do like the low ABV, making too his an enjoyable beer to drink and share.

Nice hot weather refresher. Not much lacing, some bubbles. Fruity nose, but that's about it. The taste is nice and refreshing, wheat with passion fruit. Really really thin, though.

Gold in color with a light haziness. There's a fingernail of off white around the majority of the rim and covering two-thirds of the top. The aroma is passion fruit and mango and seems to not overwhelm. The taste is a bit muddled and perfumey with dulled mango and wheat. The passion fruit doesn't seem to appear in the taste. This beer prickles the tongue a bit and seems a bit heavier in terms of carbonation than you would expect for a wheat beer.

Can. Smells really artificial. The passion fruit I don't really get much of but yeah the mango is there in pretty full force - especially on the nose. I enjoy passion fruit more than mango. Would like the ration to be flipped. The flavor was more sessionable and enjoyable than the nose.

everyone has tried diluting a bad beer with fruit juice because they dont want to throw it away. In the case of this beer it would be better to throw it away. It doesnt taste anything like a beer and has no other qualities that are attractive.
It SUCKS. But the brewer sure didnt think it was worth less than 10 bucks a six pack.
Its total garbage. Dont waste your time.
MOuth feel is lousy. It has no feel. The taste is juice not beer.

12 oz can purchased in St. Pete on recent trip, yes funny name for brewery.
A: pours a fantastic +2 finger white frothy foam head, some spotty lacing, suspended sediment in the pale golden body, some carbonation
S: fantastic passion fruit and mango aroma, some grain
M: light body with semi dry finish
T: passion fruit, mango, wheat, grain, cracker, yes as others said Kix cereal but I think that is just the grain
O: great brew, hot weather drinking, sessionable

From a May dated 12 oz can.

It delivers as advertised. It smells like passion fruit. Its like a stick of Juicy Fruit gum. The passion fruit and mango are both there when you drink it. It tastes like liquified pink Starburst and Kix cereal.

As bad as those descriptions sound, they are pretty accurate I believe and it is enjoyable. I admit, I was drinking this on the gulf on a hot ass day, but I liked it overall more than I probably should. Very refreshing and not nearly as artificial as it sounds.

thanks to my buddy for bringing this one back from a recent trip down south. this is the first i have ever heard of jdubs, and despite that being a lousy name for a brewery, the stuff inside the clever retro looking can is quite tasty. passion fruit and mango both in this one, and you can really get an honest sense of both fruits in here. i like that i can pick up the wheat too, like a chex cerieal puffed wheat thing going on, its appreciable through all of the fruit. its sweet, but the passion and the mango are equally proportioned. i dont get the authenticity from the passion fruit though, its missing its tang. the mango is nice and pulpy though. it loses some refreshment value because it is sugary, but when ice cold this is totally crushable. i think i need to be on vacation in florida to fully appreciate it, but its definitely a one of a kind brew, and the carbonation cuts some of the sweet. good not great in overall quality, but this is a beer i could see buying in the right context. it has me curious for more beers from these guys too...

Pours a hazy yellow golden color with white head. Mango, passion fruit (lilokoi), and some raw wheat notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with very floral and fruity notes lingering on the palate.

Pours a hazed amber with thin fizzy white head, a few dots of lace trailing. Smell: wow, a big blast of pure uncut passionfruit juice... just hints at mango and wheat cracker. Taste: more balanced here with passionfruit upfront into mango into snappy grain and wheat cracker, with a little coriander-ish spice, then more passionfruit to finish. Carbonation feels slightly excessive by the end of the glass. This delivers on the promise, a refreshing fruited wheat.
