look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I know when I reach for a tasty beverage, the first thing that comes to mind is "sweat"... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises cracked wheat, banana peel, light orange peel, and a dash of muddled spices. The taste brings in more of the same, with a heavy bready component leading the charge. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a middling beer at best, one that just kinda sits there with little or no distinguishing character of its own. Sure, I suppose this could be used as a nice enough thirst-quencher in the Summer months, but it's just kinda bland for my tastes beyond that.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours hazy yellow with a white head that hangs around

Smells like bananas with a little bit of citrus. Very pleasant smell.

Taste was a bit of a let down. Not as much favor as the smell would suggest. Maybe It was a bad keg. A little bit of banana and citrus but not much.

Palate-Next to no carbonation.

Overall- A big let down. I got it from a bar that offered a ton of different beers to maybe it was a stale keg but I probably wont try this again.

Serving type: on-tap
