look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy gold with a 4 finger foamy white head from a gentle pour, with very good retention and lacing. The aroma has bananas, cloves, coriander, and citrus.

The taste is sweet with bananas, bubblegum, cloves, coriander, and citrus. This is the perfect beer to drink on a warm day like today. Very refreshing.

Light bodied with high carbonation and a light sweet aftertaste. I almost move the taste score up to the next level, but barely decided against it. This is very good though, and worth buying again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Eye: hazy red golden. with a white cloud-like foam.

Nose: light character - with slightly fruity sour smell hints of metal and a whit soapiness.

Tongue: Slightly sour yeast, harmonious - only a hint of hoppy bitterness at the end. Very fresh - only a hint sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Fresh - lots of nice integrated carbonation.

Afterthought: Lingers lightly and rather shortly on the palate.

Overall: Very pleasant but unobtrusive beer; perfect for the summer. Could be a little bit "wheatier" - though no complaints...
