A friend gave me a 12 oz bottle to try, and I'm really excited about drinking this one.
Appearance: Hazy yellow with a nearly nonexistent head. It really just does not look appealing, quite frankly it looks like urine in all honesty. (I apologize if I'm offending anyone but thats what it honestly looks like.
Smell: The aroma is a blend of spicy cloves and coriander, sour citrusy lemon and lime, as well as bananas wheat and yeast. Quite pleasant all in all.
Taste: Mild malt at the forefront, which quickly transits into tart lemon citrus than shifting to a spicy clove, banana and coriander character with the yeast and wheat at the back of the taste buds. Very tasty and satisfying flavor
Moutfeel: Smooth light and crisp, a bit tingly on the tongue, but all in all very pleasant sensation.
Drinkability: All in all this one goes down quite well, the sourness is a bit strong. But, all in all its has no problem easily making its way down the throat.
Great brew all in all, the one problem I have is that its just doesn't look appetizing at all, other than that its excellent

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.
