S-Lemon, wheat and bananas

T-Mainly lemon, not real strong. Some banana at the finish but once again not a strong flavor.

M-Light, carbonated and dry

D-Too dry and carbonated to be very drinkable.

Appearance- Don't let the name fool you this beer pretty cloudy but in a good way. It has nice cloudy hay yellow color to it. The head was virtually nonexistent but there was a little lace.

Smell- Definitely sweet other than that it is mildly citrus like.

Taste- It had a strong wheat malt taste, a little bit of sugar, citrus and some spice. I thought the aftertaste was a little bitterer than it should have been.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and easy to drink.

Drinkability- Average and refreshing.

This is a slightly hazy, pale golden colored beer with a small white head.
The aroma is nothing much to speak of, other than a bit of yeast.
Its flavor begins as a normal wheat beer, then follows with some spice near the finish. There is also a slight citrus presence.
Mouthfeel is light in body and a bit under carbonated.

This is a decent beer, but nothing about it stands out as special to me.

3.03/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: minimal head, clear, amber in color

Smell: orange, cinnamon, clove, and wheat

Taste: orange, lemon, light coriander, clove, and wheat

Mouthfeel: slightly sweet, light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: This is an ok witbier that has a touch too much spicing. Fairly undistinguishable, I will pass on this in the future.

A: A pale tangerine color is moderately hazy, with a strong waverly mist of micro-bubbles rising within. The capping is strong, 2 fingers, sea-shell white in color, with a frumpy, stryofoam like texture. The lacing is equally strong sticking well to the glass leaving a chunky, bready ring band about.

S: Pale oranges, wheat and a pretty good musky nature. Fairly simple, could use some sharpness as well coriander to spice things up.

T: sharp nature, pale oranges and wheat. No frills flavor that lacked a good spiciness (again coriander and a lemony touch would have been nice). Musky hops, some bitterness come on the close. Dry wheat base, mundane flavor and spicing.

M: Upfront crispness, very tight and well suited per style, but quickly turns to a washy feel after a few seconds. Bubbly, washy that loses credibility on the hold.

O: Besides a good visual nature the beer lacks in comparison to staple styles like hoegaarden. Lacks a good spicy nature, bite, with a fairly sloppy wheat base that comes off as ordinary as the spicing. Partly sunny is partly dull and overcast.
