Review from notes.

Smell: Banana and clove yeast, bready, and some fuit

3.76/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - Pours a cloudy golden orange with a white, finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a flat, smooth surface within minutes. Virtually no lacing.
Smell - Huge banana and clove notes smack the nose upon first opening. Faint citrus and wheat rounds out the aroma.
Taste - Huge banana character upfront and throughout, backed by a strong clove spice punch. Mild citrus (lemon zest) notes ring mid-taste before a touch of wheat makes it's debut near and into the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with lively carbonation. Goes down smooth and easy with a nice, crisp finish.
Overall - A fine example of the style, and another of the few U.S. breweries that has done it right. Not much in the way of bubblegum character, but the banana and clove combo is there without fail.
