12 oz. bottle poured into a New Belgium snifter. Enjoyed a couple of these on draft this evening and came home to find a bottle in the fridge waiting for review.
A - One-finger head of white, big bubble foam that dissipates rather quickly, leaving a thin lace across the surface. Lemon yellow in color and opaque. Cloudy when held to a light.
S - Clove/banana with a citrus and pine hop background. Almost bubblegum in the nose.
T - Very much like the nose. Banana really jumps to the front, showing off the fruit. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg in the finish. Subtle spicing makes the finish, not the hops, although I'm editing my review to note that Bell's website says they don't use any spices in this brew.
M - Fizzy. Pronounced carbonation. Good body and structure. Finish lingers longer than the lightness of the beer indicates.
D - A different twist on a winter beer. It's very much in the hefeweizen style but doesn't have the crispness in the finish you'd want in the summer. Very tasty. Could easily drink several of these in a session.
