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.

On tap at Magpie Irish Pub in Rochester, NY.

Pours an extraordinarily clear straw yellow, with a half inch head, and no lacing.

Smells like banana, clove, and Belgian yeast esters.

The taste is similar. It doesn't particularly bad, per se, but the banana and yeast flavors are just a little bit too much, and overpower any spices the beer claims to have. There's a little bit of clove, but it's just a banana story, like it was a hefeweizen, not a Belgian Pale Ale. Just falls slightly short in execution.

Light bodied, crisp, smooth mouthfeel, fairly drinkable.

A little bit of a miss here from CL.
