Pours a very hazy, pale golden yellow color with straw/banana hues and a frothy, pillowy white head. Great retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap/ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Strong bready yeast character in the aroma with zesty spice, banana and cirus fruit notes. Some bubblegum character along with a strong banana and yeast presence. Peppery spice with hints of clove, coriander, lemon zest and grains of paradise. Somewhat inviting aroma but the yeast and banana are really strong, negatively affecting the aroma, in my opinion.
On the fuller end of medium body with lots of bread/yeast and zesty spice flavor. Again, there's a very strong banana bread flavor along with some bubblegum, clove, coriander, pepper and grains of paradise followed by zesty orange peel. The spice character is strong and his beer has some good zesty citrus fruit sweetness but the yeast and bubbllegum/banana flavors are too strong for my liking. Decent but a bit disappointing given the pedigree of the brewery and my excitement over the possibility of this series. Hopefully the other beers in the series turn out better.
