A: lovely straw yellow, with a gorgeous white foam head
S: spices, clove, cinnamon and some banana, along with a saltine cracker like malt.
T: clove and cinnamon at the forefront. I don't get the fruit so many others do, and my review reflects both that and my general dislike of clove flavors. The malt comes through in a cracker-biscuit way.
M: stellar. 5 stars easily here. Carbonation is high, but the bubbles are tiny. It's amazingly effervescent.
O: a gorgeously crafted beer by all accounts. If you like the spicy flavors, clove in particular, this is a must try. For the style, this is amazing, I just don't care for the style.

Bottle (6034):
Pours like a white ale, cloudy and about the most white yellow I've ever seen. The head is fluffy, sustaining, but not much lacing.

Nose is pure classics wheat, with some meadow, very light earth. There's a touch of banana, and a bit of clove, but also a lemon tartness I get in some sniffs.

Taste follows the nose, perhaps a bit more banana I noticed than a few earlier sips. Feel is quite smooth, especially as the beer warms a bit. Carbonation stays strong, letting the beer linger.

Nothing to complain about this beer, unsurprisingly. Solid but unexceptional, but as always, difficult to rate a beer that hits its style on point - is it "average" or "the standard"?

Beautiful brew. Excellent fruity yeasty esters. Banana and pear highlights along with a nice balancing act of nutty, bready, honey sweet malts and clove spice. Fruity, crisp, and refreshing. Finishes with a nice flavorful drying quality.
