4.33/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Pour: Extremely cloudy light golden-amber color with 2 fingers of white head that retained well and left lacing all over the glass.
Aroma: Big, bold aroma of wheat malt, some banana, a little bit of citrus/lemon, and a small spice note. A small yeasty note rounds it out.
Taste: The front end starts off with a big mouthful of sweet wheaty goodness which gives way into a banana and a little bit of bubblegum sweetness, and then finishes up with hints of citrus and spice and no aftertaste. Not quite as bold as the smell would lead you to think, however.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium, crisp, smooth, and with a fair bit of carbonation.
Drinkability: One of the most drinkable beers I've had. Leaves you wanting another sip, and drinks very smoothly.
Final Notes: I was hoping for a touch more flavor given the aroma, but it's very good and I'll be adding it to my regular rotation. Would make an excellent after-dinner beer or for refreshment after a hot day and you still want a lot of flavor. Highly recommended.
Serving type: bottle
