I've seen this in the store a lot. Finally decided to give it a shot, except that it's on-tap. Here goes:

A: Not that inviting. Very cloudy amber - looks exactly like apple cider with a head. Leaves good lacing, though.

S: Lots of...banana. Really a ton of banana. Accompanied by coriander, clove and lighter spices.

T: Follows the nose, except with the addition of bready yeast. Lots of banana and coriander followed by bready yeast; it almost tastes like a Belgian beer.

F: Nice and bready. Good.

O: Good beer, but I'd rather have a Belgian wit.
