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

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.
Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose
The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.
The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.
Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.
Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
