Many, many thanks to gawnphishin for sending a growler of this elixir my way.
A - The beer pours a beautiful pale golden color with a creamy 2 finger white head with decent retention. This beer is haaaazzzyyy, nearly opaque. A moderate amount of lacing remains on the glass.
S - Wow. These aromas are heavenly. Deep aromas of banana with other hints of light fruitiness. Notes of wheat and grain become present as the beer warms. The smells are VERY inviting.
T - The tastes are akin to the smells. Bananas and cloves are strong up front. Very smooth and well balanced! Mild notes of vanilla seem to come through on the finish. Slight grain sweetness. This beer is undeniably one of the tastiest beers that I've ever had.
M - Light/medium smooth body with a well-balanced carbonation. Very clean feel.
D - I honestly don't see how the drinkability can get anything other than a 5. I love that the ABV in this beer is low. The beer just tastes so good, my glass is empty before I know it.
The only thing that I'd do differently next time is to drink this beer in the warmer months of spring/summer.
