Hazy bright yellow gold color to the beer. Huge head filled over two inches with pillow-like white bubbles. Slow rising microscopic bubbles in abundance. Minimal lacing.
Fruity aromas have a banana backbone mixed with cherries and pineapples. A strong scent of yeast is heavy with the other aromas in the nose. A light spice to the finish hints of peppercorns.
The taste on the tongue are great. Ranging from a sweetness of malts and fruity sugars to a spicy note that starts light but emboldens itself on the tongue. Low bitterness is just right to keep this from being cloying.
Just a bit watery on the tongue. Beer clings and struggle to show all its flavors on all mouth surfaces. Carbonation burst is pleasant without overwhelming.
A fantastic brew. This one should be enjoyed best by itself to appreciate the complexity. Beware the alcohol content, as it sneaks up without a hint of it's presence. Well worth trying for any beer lover out there.

On tap @ Library Alehouse.
A: Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades slowly to a thin cap and leaves spots of lace.
N: Estery, cloves, bananas, wheaty, faint bacon.
T: Sweetish malts balanced well with estery fruits, bananas, cloves, with a mild ABV heat and a nice woodyness.
M: Medium body and semi-medium carbonation. Fruity, estery and wheaty finish.
O: Hard to describe how intricate this beer is. Almost a cognac-like thing happening which is probably from a magical combination of the wheat and malts. An interesting "big" weizen. Again, why have I not tried this before. Really liked. Give it a try.
