I guess I'll take the first crack at reviewing this one. What an honor.

Pours a white head. Color is a golden orange.

Flavors of banana, clove, an esters. A lot of bready malt. It's a steam beer with a twist. Very fruity and yeasty.

Mouthfeel: is very dry. Lighter bodied.

Overall, this is one of the better 'steam' beers I have had. Typical surly twist to take a style and mess with it. This one tastes great. Very easy to drink. My pint didn't last long.

On tap at Surly's Surlyfest event. Served in a Surlyfest stein.

Appearance: Color is a pale golden orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and about one finger of off white head which slowly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A very yeast driven aroma with hints of spices, fruit, and toasty malts. Big upfront hints of the Hefe-Weizen yeast along with hints of pepper, funk, and cloves. Bready barley malts with hints of biscuit, toast, grains, and straw. Fruit hints of bananas and citrus hints of orange peel, apricot, tangerine, and lemon. Also a slight hint of bubblegum. Hints of earthy hops in the background. A pretty interesting and good aroma.

Taste: Like the nose hints at, a very yeast driven taste with notes of fruits, spices, and toasted malt. Big Hefe-Weizen yeast taste upfront along with notes of cloves, pepper, and funk. Toasted barley malts with bready notes of biscuit, straw, grains, and cracker. Fruity banana taste along with a slight note of bubblegum. Fairly hoppy with citrus notes of orange, tangerine, apricot, pineapple, and lemon. Fairly drying. Quite an interesting taste. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Spicy and pretty drying.

Overall: A pretty good yeast driven beer. Hardly seems like a California Common. Its like a mix of Hefe-Weizen and Cynic style Belgian.

I had this beer at the kramarczuk's Kielbasa Festival on tap. This beer was clear gold in colour with bright notes of wheat and light crystal malts and munich hops. I could taste the sweet malts, which phased into lingering bitter hops on the palate. This beer was light, sessionable, and crisp.

Would I buy this beer again? Probably not.
