4.61/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass and served at 40F.

A - Translucent and hazy yellow-gold, like hay. Ridiculous amount of bright white head develops, light and creamy. Reduces slowly and leaves a nice trickle of lace down the glass as it is drank.

S - Grassy, bready, picking up the yeast and the hop character in equal amounts. Extremely bright and fresh smelling. Banana esters and brown sugar. A bit of pear ester there as well.

T - A bit of a Belgo influence going on here? Some sweetness, caramel-like, folded in with the banana flavor. Its a bit like bananas foster. Along with that though is a subtle citrus character, along with a nice yeast backbone reminiscent of bread. Excellent!

M - Refreshing, light mid-palate and a remarkably clean finish. Detecting a bit of warmth on the roof of the mouth, but its incredible to me that this is 7.7ABV and is such a smooth finisher.

O - Among the best in my book. I love it, I'd drink it all summer if it were readily available to me. It will be on hand at my place for sure!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.
