In terms of drinkability, this is superb. I get a beautiful array of flavors in the nose. I get some, honey, yeast, spice, slight hops, toasted grain, sweet malt, pineapple and passion fruit, some marshmallow and sweet candy undertone.
This drinks so smoothly, I get wheat, fresh hops and tropical citrus, a nice dose of spiciness and blended sweetness from grain and bread, malt, an almost maple syrup or molasses, and this great cotton candy finish that is sweet yet dry. Wonderful aftertaste, nice esters and sweetness. I thought at the beginning sip this would be like a triple or very belgium-esque, but is was surpisingly well balanced and superbly balanced. Great mix of flavors, alcohol is almost non-existent in the taste.

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.
