look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A - Straw, slight haze. Didn't stir the yeast cake up at the bottom. Maybe I should've. Fluffy off-white head, fades quickly. Very nice lacing throughout.

S - Coriander, pepper, citrus, lemon. spice.

T - Light biscuit, spice, orange.

M - Medium body. Not as light as other wheat beers. Medium carb.

O - I don't have a lot of experience with wheat beers, but this one seems to be a slightly above average.

The guy who sold the bottle to me gave this beer a lot of praise. Pours a cloudy witbier blond with a disappointing soda fizz for a head. Smells good, though. Cloves, banana, yeasty sweet rolls. Altogether makes for an enticing aroma. Tastes just like it smells. For my taste it badly needs more carbonation. Rather than dancing on the tongue or delivering a refreshing feel, its body feels flat and lifeless, a bad quality in a summer beer. All in all, it tastes good and is worth trying but needs that extra carbonation to give it some snap.

What an aesthetic name... poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a hazy, watery golden color with almost no head. Smell is actually similar to a hefe; there is a slightly spicy, clovey, banana presence. Taste is just like the nose... much better than the appearance. Mouthfeel is pretty light in both body and carbonation. Overall very drinkable, the alcohol isn't perceivable and it goes down easily. I would recommend this beer.

Sampling right now on 5/11/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 10 ounce glass 'boot'.

Pours a light hazy straw yellow in color with a 1/2-finger of a fizzy white head that settles down to along the sides of the glass. Lots of streaming bubbles rising up from the bottom and sides of the boot. Very little lacing is seen. The aroma is of malts and wheat with a hint of light spice. The taste is pretty much the same with a light hint of citrus as well. Very easy to drink with no bitter or harsh aftertaste. A great summer seasonal brew for a hot day. Overall, I like this one.

Poured gold with less than one finger of white, poor retention, and spotty lacing. Not much of a nose besides some modest banana and lemon. Very thin flavor profile, and raw bitter finish. Definitely missing more fruit balance. Thin bodied and decently carbonated. Nice feel for sessioning, but unfortunately not enough flavor.

I was not too impressed with this beer.Extremely light yellow color and the smell had a hint of sourness to it.The taste is OK but there is a subtle metallic taste to it.It is drinkable but there are much better beers out there to try.I would only drink again if it was free.
