Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Gulden Draak tulip glass.
A massive white, foaming head appears as you pour, and then thretens not to leave without some coaxing. Leaves a few mm of head for the rest of the drink and laces the glass.
The smell is summer for me, slightly earthy, but overriding freshness, like a field on a breezy summers day, with the wheat, some floweriness, and citrus tones coming through.
The taste starts of with these fresh tones, a wheaty, yeasty taste which is light and refreshing, then following that some mild spices and citrus flavours can be found, almost warming you up with the alcohol taste infused.
Overall an immense drink, I might go right now and order a whole crate of the stuff!

Slightly hazy lemon with a modest ivory head. Orange zest, clove, wheat, lemon, coriander, and floral hops form the very strong aroma. Banana emerges late. Flavor is slightly more subdued, with citrus leading, and becoming bready and toasted mid palate. Citrus notes strengthen in subsequent sips, dominating the profile.
Delicious take on the style. I love the bready malt presence, and the fact that it's not bubblegum or banana laden until the finish.
