Notes/Commercial Description:
This refreshing pale south German style wheat ale is fermented to naturally draw out a hint of banana and clove. It's unfiltered and lightly hopped to achieve its smooth, pleasant flavor and cloudy appearance. Enjoy!

Pours a hazy lemony golden with a lingering frothy white head.

Wheat, lemon, orange pith, clove, and banana form the aroma, with a hint of coriander creeping in. There's a bit of bready malt.

Flavor is dominated by citrus initially, with lemon and orange giving way to lightly bready, slight sweet malt, then wheat, all riding on underpinnings of clove. Banana surfaces in the slightly dry finish. Pear esters and bubblegum emerge as it warms.

Body is moderate to a tad light, with moderate carbonation and a slightly creamy mouthfeel.

May be a touch sweet and citrus dominant, and could use more malt backbone, but has all the bells and whistles characteristic of the style.
