A-The beer has a hazy blonde appearance with a white thick foam head that settles to a white lacing ring around the glass.
S-The beer had a yeasty and slight banana aroma initially. As the head settled down and the beer warmed, the beer gave off a faint citrus and peach or fruit smell.
T-The beer has a bitter/yeasty and herbal taste that as swallowed changes into a peach like sweetness with a very slightly bitter/herbal aftertaste.
M-It has a very light mouthfeel that is accented by the higher level of carbonation.
D-The beer is well balanced and has a light and refreshing taste. It's lighter body and carbonation make this a refreshing and easy beer to drink.

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!
