Great looking beer. Good frothy pale white head and a slight cloudy golden body.

Smells robust of cloves and other spices, plus a touch of lemon and sweet bready malts.

Taste is true to nose, spice-heavy with clove and banana notes, plus a thick bread taste and sweetness. Banana bread, I guess, but with a touch of tartness maybe.

It's medium-bodied and not necessarily something you can easily throw back, which I find interesting because I feel this brew (and many witbiers) appeal to the type of folks looking to drink a lot more than enjoy a lot.

I don't mean that as a diss to this beer, I find this to be reasonably tasty, but something prevents me from enjoying it fully. Wish I knew what that was.

I actually think this is a great beer to bring to a party, either winter or summer, since it's in cans and seems to be conservative enough for those not necessarily into beer and good enough for the beer-obsessed.
