look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass
A: Pours a hazy golden-straw color. This is a foamy white head of about one finger which has decent retention before fading to a ring of foam.
S: A mild but enjoyable aroma. Lightly toasted malt melds with a somewhat fruity fermentation profile. Overall fairly sweet, with notes of caramel.
T: The first thing I pick up is the sweet and light toasty malt flavors. This is quickly joined by a light, noble hop flavor which provides just a touch of bitter grass. The fruity fermentation flavors and yeast become prominent in the mid-palate, with notes of phenolic banana. Clove joins the flavors in the moderate length finish.
M: Fairly thin and slightly watery, but this works with the medium-high carbonation. Fairly crisp and easy to drink.
O: Pretty good beer. Some phenolic Belgian flavors in a beer that is overall easier drinking that your standard Hefeweizen.
Serving type: can
