Served on tap into a shaker glass at the brewpub

A- Poured a semi-hazy golden color with a frothy head that left glass coating lace

S- Big banana, clove, and marshmallow like sweetness, some grains. Very aromatic and with a pleasant and unique sweetness in the aroma

T- Bananas and cream. Big banana flavor, clove, marshmallow fluff, and citrus notes. Big bold clove flavor and banana flavor lead and it becomes an almost marshmallow type flavor.

M- Smooth, prickly carbonation, finishes dry

O- Very drinkable with some very traditional and unique elements. A great beer I was fortunate to come across in Idaho.

Pour: Pale golden-yellow color with one finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Pretty much looks like your standard American lager.

Smell: A light hint of citrus with a little bit of wheat and pale malt and a slight hoppy character.

Taste: Light, crisp lemon flavor supported by a light wheat malt backbone and finishes clean with a light bitterness and no aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp with high carbonation.

Drinkability: Very refreshing, about like drinking soda.

Final Notes: A rather interesting beer of sorts, think of it as a filtered American Hefeweizen. A great beer for summer refreshment and makes a really good black-and-tan with the Midnight Satin, but not anything I seek to drink all the time.
