Appearance: a straw yellow color. forms a finger of a white head with decent retention and leaving behind a small lacing. slight haze to it and almost opaque.

Smell: slight belgian to farmhouse yeast. wheat and some muskiness. clove and spicy phenols.

Taste: opens with a slight candy sweetness along with a light belgian to farmhouse yeast. some clove and spicy esters. very light and balanced. slightly musty

Mouthfeel: light and wispy. a little refreshing but not overly so.

Overall: not bad but just not overly good. could be more refreshing and the mustiness takes away a bit on it.

Gold colored beer with suspended floating bits throughout. Head is large and fluffy for a short while before it turns to a thin patchy sheet and a ring. Aroma is spicy, with floral and fruity esters. Lightly phenolic... Banana cream pie, flowery, a little farmy, pizza doughy, with slight lemon/wheaty tartness. Taste is all of the above and pleasantly refreshing. Very easy to drink down and not overly yeasty either. Bell's did a good job with this one...

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into one of my snifters. This beer pours a slightly cloudy/hazy light to medium golden color with a white head that is about 1/3 of an inch thick when first poured that eventually settles to a good thick ring lining the inside of the glass. Not too much lacing though unfortunately. Aromas of some banana along with a peppery/spicy citrus zest. a grainy yeast smell, and a bit of herbal hops. Has a somewhat sweet, bready malt flavor upfront followed by the peppery/spicy citrusy zest that is followed by a slight herbal hop bitterness to round it out. Has a crisp, yet smooth, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate to heavy carbonation. Easy to drink in a good way.
