What the brewers say

“Belgian-style wheat infused with copious amounts of passion fruit.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Juicy tropical fruit flavors of peach, pear, mango, cantaloupe, citrus, and passion fruit. Like a can of ripe fruit cocktail with a very fruity, very tart edge. The retronasal is dried apricot and tropical fruit juice. There’s a smooth wheat character beneath that brings everything together, along with some herbal and grassy notes as it warms.”

Flavor: “Surprisingly intense passion fruit up front, with a pleasant tartness to balance the sweetness from the fruit and the wheat. Coconut flavors remind me of a Piña colada. The wheat character beneath serves as a secondary but supporting role, and the carbonation heightens the acidity, but also clears off the palate, encouraging more sips.”

Overall: “An amazingly flavorful, fruity beer that surprises with an intense passion-fruit character that takes hold and doesn’t let go. And so. Much. Fruit. The beer does hide underneath somewhat, and it does feel like drinking a can of tropical fruit cocktail, but the passion fruit is very well executed.”
