This sediment-laden beer pours a pale golden orange color. Its head is white and fizzy, standing two fingers high and retaining well. Yeasty particulates are noted, as well as medium carbonation. The aroma is malty and heavily wheated. There are strong whiffs of under ripe green bananas, with other spice and floral notes. The yeast is noted and a bit chalky. As is expected, the taste begins with bright wheat. Here there are also cloves and other dark spices. The middle opens up with the sweetness of banana heavy esters. Everything blends and amplifies at the top of the sip, quickly disappearing down the throat for a smooth and calm finish of malts. The aftertaste follows suit, and breathes with more of that clove, and a sour wheatiness. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium to heavy, and slightly prickly. The mouth is coated nicely and is fully satiated. The abv is appropriate, hardly palpable, and, when coupled with the beer's smoothness, makes for a highly drinkable beverage.
Overall, what we liked best about this brew was its bold aroma and clean, crisp finish. The style of brew dictates darker, hefe-like aromas, and this brew had them all. It was very wheaty and estery, with that perfect darkening twist of malt and spice. With such robust scents it would seem that one or more of them could overpower the brew's taste, but here, we are given a nicely blended brew with a surprisingly delicate finish.

Poured into an IPA glass. Don't ask.
Look: Murky caramel body. Cream colored head with decent retention. Light lacing.
Aroma: Buttered bread, toffee, and some old world European skunkiness.
Taste: Wheat, toasted bread, butter, caramel.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smooth.
Overall: Probably would get a perfect score if I had this fresh. Too many weird flavors from being an export.
