Eager to try this new brew. Poured into my Southampton weizen glass. Pours slightly hazy straw with a big 3 finger rocky head fading a bit and leaving excellent clumps of lacing on the glass. Clarity is kind of in between a hefeweizen and a kristalweizen.
Aroma is heavy on the banana which is a-ok in my book. Lush banana with a little bit of a tart wheat and yeasty cracker.
Flavor follows. Loads of banana up front mixed with bubble gum. A little bit of a cracker bready malt in the middle before finishing with another wave of banana backed with just a touch of clove. Despite the big flavors up front, it finishes crisp and dry. This one is perfectly balanced.
A little chewy, but overall still a very light beer with a medium level of carbonation.
I'm kind of hit or miss on Sixpoint, but this is a big hit. They nailed the perfect balance for this style. Clove is present but stays in the background and lets the banana shine through. The other 3 cans of this are going with me to the Indy 500 as I can't think of too many other canned beers that will be more refreshing than this.

Picked up a can of this yesterday from a local bottle shop, cracked it open and immediately smelled a strong urine odor along with rotten bananas, For some reason I went on to actually taste this abomination of beer, it was like Donkey Kong went on a banana binge and the gave me a golden shower the next morning. Putrid bananas and strong dark urine is all I can think of....but I looked at the bottom of the can once I was done muscling through this beer, since I dont believe in drain pours, and it was canned in July of 2013...7 months ago, I hope thats the problem. If not, I am seriously surprised that this crap came from 6 point
