Pours a very hazy golden color with a thick head. Head retention is good. Lacing is decent. Has the funky yeasty fruity aroma. A little more hop and a little less fruit would be nice. Strong yeasty funk taste with very fruity aftertaste. It is a little on the sweet side but still good. Still would prefer a little more hop to it.

I had barely poured an ounce in the glass and got three inches of bubbly foam, that's how alive this brew is. After a more deliberate pour I was able to achieve a solid head of soapy bubbles crest above the glass resembling merange. The color was bright golden with a current of bubbles emanating from the bottom.

Strong hints of banana and clove with sweet notes of bubblegum, the scent is fragrant but not overly complex.

The taste is a deeply satisfying melding of malt, grain and yeast. The yeast characteristics come through stronger with a sweetness and spiciness. The banana, clove and bubblegum-like flavor are more subtle than in the nose and attach to the malt and grain.

The feel is very full and the massive carbonation dissipated after letting it sit. I drank this cold and a bit warmer and found it better refrigerated.
