Good head for a bar pour. Lasting like wheat beer should have. The liquid is appropriately cloudy with a lime green hint to the yellow color.

Lots of semi-sweet wheat smell.

Quite sour for the style. Quick ending finish. Full bodied , yet has an equally high level of carbonation. Simply put a very wheaty beer. Although tart, I detect some berry sweetness.

Serving type: on-tap

Not really a full review, as I only had it at a store tasting (but it was a substantial size "sample"). Bottom line, the combination of price and taste did not encourage me to buy it, although I would say that it's representative of its type and is worth trying for those who like it (I generally do not).

The pour had slight head, clarity hard to determine in a dark-green plastic sampling cup but it appeared cloudy. The brewery rep clearly had a long day and did not really want to be there, but this was the item he really wanted to push, as it is new and timely. He repeatedly stated that it should taste like cloves and bananas although there are no cloves or bananas in it. He was half-right. There was a noticeable green-banana nose and a very clear banana note on the tongue. Not so much on the cloves -- no characteristic bitterness or spiciness of any kind. Slight undifferentiated citrus note to go along with typical yeasty goodness. Other than that, fresh but unremarkable. I'm not likely to go back to it, as I have a mixed wit case to deal with and all are substantially lower-priced.
