11.2oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Look: Hazed muddle yellow, beautiful bubbly lace

Smell: Fresh bread, faint banana peel, mild spice, nutty yeast, dragonfruit, doughy

Taste: Smooth, crisp bite, clean graininess, mild banana pith, vague spice, yeast, chalky, dried grass, modest hopping, finishes dry

Very good, a bit too clean for my liking ... expected a bit more of the banana and clove but without those two pushing harder it is still a very drinkable brew.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass.

A: yellow, a little bit cloudy, massive head (had to stop mid pour to let it settle before I could finish pouring, and it wasn't at all an aggressive pour), lots of visible carbonation.

S: yeast and pear

T: Mild and sweet, almost like drinking apple juice with a gentle kick. I don't really taste bananas and cloves like I'd expect, but I do taste bubblegum.

F: crisp, slightly chalky.

Very nice.
