look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

a- looks appetizing. clear golden color. thick head that doesn't last too long. little lacing.

s- banana and bubble gum are the strongest scents. some floral hints here and there.

t-tough to put your finger on the style the brewer had in mind. could be the clean and overly filtered process the beer has gone through. it's not awful though. the banana flavors are predominate, the smacky bubble gum taste follows right after. the back end has some maltiness to it.

m- light to medium.

o-really just a very commercial Belgian Pale. clean and very filtered. the average beer drinker would enjoy. those with a more selective taste might be turned off. but hey, i'd buy it again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I poured a bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance- Clear golden color with two fingers worth of head. Good head retention and a fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Grain and floral aromas with a little hint of citrus.

Taste- Sweet malt flavors with notes of honey and citrus and a little bit of banana.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied, smooth, and crisp. Sticky feel after the swallow with a lingering sweetness.

Overall- A well balanced, good tasting beer. The flavor reminds me of a cross between wit and a hefeweizen.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Light golden colour with pretty good head retention and lacing, smell has some fresh apple, yeasty and lemon notes, banana bread. Taste has a clean feel, sweet apple, and stone fruit, light plum, lot of crisp malt, a firm bready yeastiness, a touch of warming pepper on the finish. Balance is pretty good but not much depth here. A refreshing yeasty bite though. Mouthfeel is full with a fair bit of carbonation, light mild bitter finish, finish is a bit messy. Overall its a refreshing easy drinking Belgian pale, fresh and fruity, but not that complex, not inspiring but drinkable.
