12 oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada pint glass.
Pours very cloudy with the color ranging from pale straw at the edges to a golden-orange color. 1 finger of moussy white head that exhibits fair retention. Aroma is fairy subdued. A soft and slightly bready wheat aroma is the first thing that I notice but moderate banana-like esters become more prominent. Moderate clove-like phenols also make a bit of a delayed appearance. Taste is pretty darn good. Soft wheat quickly segues to moderate banana-like esters and then some moderate clove-like phenols. There is a touch of bubblegum in the finish. Very well balanced. Mouthfeel is quite good with a wonderfully creamy body that is fairly light but aided by the suspended yeast. Carbonation is a touch on the low side but still works pretty well. Drinkability is pretty darn good. The esters and phenols which are very reserved at first build a bit but never become too much. This beer is well-balanced and easy quaffable.
