A. Hazy bright yellow. Inch of white head.

S. Banana. Sugar. Malt. A nutty fragrance, maybe almond or hazelnut.

T. Banana and clove. Light pepper.

M Very light. Crisp. Tangy.

O. It's OK. I wouldn't put it up as one the best of the style. The clove is too powerful.

The aroma is lightly spicy with a little banana and dough plus a touch of latex and browning apple. The cloudy body is a sunny amber with a white head. The flavor is spicy, sour, and bitter with some waxy, honey-like sweetness; the finish is grainy and mildly sweet. The body is somewhat light but well carbonated and spritzy.

A little too sour and bitter for my taste, and not well balanced with the more pleasant clove and banana typical of the style. Still, the texture is refreshing and the flavor isn't altogether bad. The aroma isn't too appetizing though.
