4.38/5  rDev +19.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz brown stubby bottle, capped. Label states that this is a Limited Release. Pours our a pale-golden yellow with tons of tiny bubbles. Very small head that doesn't last at all.

Smell is wheat, lemon notes and also some clove and banana. Almost leaning towards the smell of a Belgian beer. Taste is sweeter than I expected but in a good way. Malty banana start this beer out and it ends with a nice spicy bitterness. Nice little yeast bite that adds some complexity.

I am drinking this in the mid to upper 40's and it really brings out some great flavors. Still clean and easy drinking but tons of layers of flavors. Very easy drinking beer that I would love to have one tap.
