Happy Hour doesn't not get any better than at my local Gordon Biersch. This beer goes down so smooth. It's more of a spring and summer beer, but can really be enjoyed year round. It has a hint of banana that can be both smelt and tasted. If this beer was available in kegs, it would be a permanent staple.

Served on-tap at Gordon Biersch in Raleigh Durham International Airport (RDU)
A: Pours a cloudy golden orange in color with some light hints of golden yellow and apricot highlights along with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer along with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of wheat with a hint of breadiness along with some light to moderate aromas of lemon citrus and banana + clove. Smells like what I expect for the style though maybe a slight bit flatter than some of the exceptional ones.
T: Like the smell, upfront there was a light to moderate flavor of wheat which is followed by moderate amounts of banana and clove. There are light hints of lemon citrus and just a touch of earthy/spicy yeast. Minimal amounts of bitterness.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Easy to drink and enjoyable but unfortunately (or fortunately) I have been spoiled by having many great beers in this style... this is not a bad version of the style but just a little better than middle of the road.
