A CL growler into my tulip tumbler. A lightly hazy, golden straw color. A standard pour yields a good sized head of two to three fingers and gentle amount of carbonation visible at first. The head recedes and the stream of bubbles vanishes. Some lacing on the sides and a ring on the top of the brew.
Smell is gorgeous. Lemon and Belgian yeast, spice and banana. A trace of sweet alcohol with malt and light floral hops swirl underneath. Mmmmm Good.
Taste is perfection in a glass. This beer blends my favorite weiss/wit characteristics with exceptional Belgian pale ale flavors. A sweet and broad malt palate combines with lemon and spice upfront. Banana, butterscotch, and yeasty fruit like flavors sweep in from there and take you to the tingly hop finish. Firmly bitter but blended sublimely into the malt structure the hops remains and lingers as the malt gives way to biscuits and more faint butterscotch. Alcohol barely there and is a binding feature and taste that never draws attention to itself,
Mouthfeel is carbonated and lively with cream at the top. It is light enough to wash down the greatest thirst and weighty enough to let you know it's not water. For the style it doesn't get any better.
Drinkability is phone home good. Let you buddies know you have found the next great session beer. Slightly elevated in abv it nonetheless begs to spend the night in your glass until the wee hours.
Oh, and by the way, this growler has been in my cellar for just over a month. Scott Vaccaro has done the world of beer a huge service with this one. Thank You!

Poured from bottle into snifter
Appearance- pours a hazy gold with a short, creamy, bubbly head which recedes quickly and leaves some minor lacing.
Aroma- faint spice and citrus, bready, yeasty
Feel- medium, oily, little carbonation tingle, and finishes crisp but very smooth
Taste- taste follows the nose, to a degree- less malty, more spicy/citrusy with a hint of banana towards the end
Overall- This being my first beer in the Belgian style realm, i liked it a lot. It's not that heavy of a beer and very drinkable. That being said, it isn't too complex, which I believe makes it good for those who want to get into Belgian style ales.

Got to try on tap fresh from the brewery the other day and I thought it was very nice. The appearance was a hazy yellow with a decent head. The smell had a lot of wheat and banana to it. The taste was similar with great notes of banana, and even a little bit of spice. The feel of the beer was a little light but refreshing in the heat. Would definitely get again.
