2.59/5 rDev -29%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow color with a frothy, two finger white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very light colored for the style and possibly over carbonated. The pillowy white head takes forever to finally settle leaving chunks of soapy lacing behind.
Spicy aroma with a strong peppery clove presence that's followed by earthy hops, bready yeast, malted wheat and ain't light fruit. The clove character dominates the nose and overpowers most of the other wheat beer notes. Underneath, there are some stale, soil-y hops, bread, bubblegum, banana and apple. No citrus character or much else of interest in the nose. Other than the clove, the aroma is kind of bland.
Light bodied and a bit more interesting than the nose suggests but still somewhat pedestrian. Some dry, earthy clove and zesty citrus rind countered by bread, wheat and banana. Finishes with earthy hop bitterness that is fresher and more flavorful than the hop presence in the nose hinted at. The citrus character which was missing in the aroma shows up strong in the flavor with slightly tart lemon juice and zesty lemon pith. The flavor and mouthfeel fall off mid-palate resulting in a watered down, mediocre beer. Very easy to drink but not all that interesting.

Poured a hazy light straw color with a creamy-ish white head. Head has moderate retention and some nice lacing. The aroma is spot-on with nice esters and fruit. The taste is a little washed out, like it had some water added after it was brewed. The flavors are there, they're just muted. The body is thin, as well. It's not bad and definitely an easy drinker.
