Hazy yellow straw in color. A fingernail of white foam rests on top. Banana ester aroma is very compelling. The mouthfeel is a bit thin for me. The taste starts of with the wheat and banana flavoring. The finish is brisk, but fulfilling. I like the look and the aroma but that felt like a tease.

look: 2.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a slightly hazed gold with 1" of eggshell colored head (vigorous pour). No head retention or lacing

S: Cloves & green banana

T: Follows the nose, some ripe banana, white grapes & pears along some juicy fruit up front. More juicy fruit & pears, plus a little tartness & dryness as this warms, green banana & cloves as well. Finishes with some dryness, juicy fruit & cloves

MF: Medium bodied with lively carbonation

Easy drinker, fairly spot on for the style, easily the best beer I've had from these guys

Had this poured out of one of Urban Chestnut' euro-bottles. Color is a really nice looking hazy straw color with about three fingers of very fluffy head. Aroma is spice and yeast with a hint of banana and citrus. Taste continues with the spice, citrus and yeast. Mouthfeel is very crisp and effervescent due to the high amount of carbonation. Overall, this is one of my favorite Bavarian style Weissbiers that I've had. Will definitely be having some more. Prost!
