Amazingly simply amazing. Sipping this beer I cannot describe the plothora of flavors present in it, but I'm not at that point, so I'll start with the appearence, which is mighty fine. Pours kind of a ruddy golden, head is like heavy cream, god it's beautiful. Left a huge covering, if not thick lacing.
It smells fairly standard, reminding me of a wheat beer and duvel. IMO the weakest point of the beer.
The flavor, god the flavor. smooth, complex and rich. Spicyness from the alchohol, wheat flavors, mild banana, sugars. God, I list all those and I can't even approach what I taste there. Amazing, simply amazing. In the back of it all, just a touch of bitter from the hops that calls out the contrasts and makes all the amazing maltiness of the beer just stand out even more.
even more than the flavor though, this beer rolls around the mouth, in perfect coordination with the carbonation and the full mouthfeel. It's almost like what champaigne would taste like if it had a roundness to match the carbonation.
As you can probably tell by now, i've had a bit of this stuff. Why? it's damn drinkable. Amazing, amazing brew, no if ands or buts.

Apperance-golden hazy with a beautiful white head that sticks around for a while.
Smell - spicy, orange, hay, funk
Taste- orange, green banana, dry, slightly sour, hides abv very well
Mouthfeel - very nice smooth, full mouth feel
Overall - A lovely beer. Very refreshing, delicious and beautiful to look at. Available at a decent price. Not an easy beer to get where I live but will pick it up when I travel to another city.
