look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

One of life's simple pleasures, maybe not to simple. This beer has head for days, I got a little carried away in the pour and had to suck the overflowing head. Needless to say the head is better than three fingers of dense foam. The color is slightly hazy, matching a 10 on the SRM beer color chart. Very sticky lace that clung to the glass to the end. Smell is fascinating, with aromas of banana, cloves, tangelo, peach, and sun dried sweet wheat. Taste is almost beyond words and this is from someone who is not much of a fan of wheat beer. There are a myriad of flavors weaving in and out of each mouthful. There is banana, cloves, orange, lemon, vanilla, cinnamon, did I mention banana, well it was just great. Mouthfeel is very full and creamy, with lots of tingle. Just a pleasure to drink. Hard to come by or I would have much more of this.
