4.33/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A - Poured a cloudy, pale yellow. There is a relatively low head that pops up, retains for a short while, and forms a film on the top of the beer. The visible carbonation is quite lively, and the fine, small bubbles aid in the formation of light lacing on the sides of the glass.
S - Really nice strength of aroma here. The yeast leads the way with light banana, some sweetness and hints of spice.
T - Follows the nose. The flavor is complex, yet light. Typical wheat beer flavors with very light spiciness. Normally I'm wary of beers brewed with spices, but these add to the beer, rather than becoming the dominant presence.
M - Really nice. Medium-bodied with supporting carbonation that leaves a tingle on the tongue. It has a mildly dry finish, with a slightly funky aftertaste.
O - I could easily go through a six pack of these, particularly in the warmer months. Normally I savor a beer for 20 or more minutes, and I drained this one in less than 10. Definitely wanted a second. Highly recommend.

A - poured a very pale straw, very light color. Sight haze. Head was massive frothy large bubbled 2 fingers, dissipated to a nice soapy froth, although was always lively did not leave much lacing.
S - pungent banana and fruity yeast Esthers dominate the nose. Slight citrus and herbal notes follow, coriander, anise, and clove... Tons of fresh breadyness round out the nose, smells fresh and inviting.
T - I feel the taste follows the nose exactly, no surprises here... Tons of fruityness from the yeast with lots of banana, herbal notes prevalent with a good amount of citrusy coriander, still getting a slight licorice-esque anise and some clove. This taste is supported by a great bready biscuity wheat malt that is crisp and refreshing. Finishes with a clean citrusy bitter.
M - great mouthfeel, very refreshing. Crisp and dry with a good amount of body to the mouthfeel from the wheat.
O - one of the beers that got me into craft back in the day, over the years this hasn't changed and is still just as good today. Overall all just a perfect example of the style to me. Looks great, smells and tastes phenomenal and is really crisp and thirst quenching.
