Ordered a pint of this at the brewpub a few nights ago. Following review based on notes.
Appearance: Hazy orange-gold body with a thin, sticky, white head on top. Head retention is pretty weak, but the beer leaves a ton of goopy lace on the walls of the glass.
Smell: Red berries, wheat, and caramel emerge at the onset. As the beer steadily warmed, I picked out pan dulce, overripe banana, and mild spicy notes. Sweet and subtle, with a good deal of complexity.
Taste: Wheat, banana, pan dulce, and alcohol. The alcohol isn't offensive, but it's very apparent - makes for a lot of dryness and floral esters in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Actively carbonated in a very nice way: fine bubbles roll across the palate, producing a massage-like sensation. Malt-forward with a dry, estery-sweet finish. Lighter in body and cleaner-finishing than other wheatwines I've tried.
Drinkability: Very enjoyable, though not terribly intriguing. A little sweeter finish would probably help this one out.
