S: Thick, bready spices. Feels like you could cut the aroma with a knife, wow. A lot of clove and banana with crisp apple/pear notes supported by some effervescent citrus.
T: Thick, flavorful, rounded experience. Everything in balance and hitting the right notes. The same aroma notes comes in full on at the beginning until the thick, soft body churns it into a lightly sour sweetness. Meanwhile the carbonation is almost providing a spicy experience with how prickles your mouth.
The flavor's are kicked up and pronounced! Maybe not the most intricate, but it's a delight to drink.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
