BEER #1218

And what a mouthful it is: 5 Rabbit 5 Lizard Latin-style Witbier with coriander, lime peel, and passion fruit. Whew! And a supremely drinkable beer. This beer is brewed in Illinois, and apparently is owned by South Americans, hence the Latin-style part of the beer. And I’ll tell you, there’s no mistaking the passion fruit in this beer. We have a passion fruit vine in the back yard, grows all over the place like crazy. And every once in a while it actually bears some fruit, which is fairly difficult to process, but when mixed with ice cream gives it a nice sharp tangy flavor. And apparently it does the same to beer. Even with the coriander and the lime peel flavors, the pre-eminent mouthfeel is the passion fruit.
 Actually sorry I only bought one bottle from Lakeland Beer Revolution store, but will definitely pick up a sixer next time I’m there. And hopefully Mike will have some of their other ‘Latin-style’ beers to try.  Lakeland Beer Revolution
So ask for it and give it a shot, if they don’t carry it, pester your local beer store, it’s worth it.
