Appearance:
Hazy deep orange colored body hosts plenty of carbonation streams. A thick, off white head reveals itself on pour and has great retention. Lacing is decent. Looks fantastic.

Aroma:
Bright bubblegum and clove assault the nose right away followed by fresh banana and a dash of cinnamon. Potent Belgian yeast character throughout. Exactly what you should expect from the style!

Taste:
Banana bomb! Plenty of light wheat character and clove. The flavors here are exactly what you expect after taking in the aroma - there are no tricks, with the exception of the banana that really comes through when it this beer hits the buds. Sweet Belgian candy on the finish with a hint of orange zest.

Mouthfeel:
Carb-a-licious! Again, perfect for the style - Light, crisp, and refreshing. Semi-sweet finish.

Overall:
The hefeweizen to beat in my opinion! Smooth and refreshing with plenty of character, you'd be hard pressed to find a better summer beer that will not only quench your thirst, but also please your taste buds!
