3.24/5  rDev -6.1%

Appearance (3.5) : pours a hazy banana yellow body with three fingers of stable lacing at the top.

Smell (3.5) : banana peel, some old pineapple, a sugary sour aroma overall. A little wheat.

Taste (3) : Some fresh wheat, honey, a little green apple, coriander, lots of spicy bite. A little banana aftertaste. What can I say, it tastes like a wheat beer. Nothing exceptional in the least.

Mouthfeel (3) - carbonated, creamy. Ends crisp.

Overall (3.24) : A big disappointment. It's a wheat beer, sure. But that's all it is. Snapshot is better.
