Pours a great looking beer. The brew has a light golden unfiltered appearance. There is little carbonation, but a thin white head that laces all the way down the drink.
Smell is nice. There is a base of nice fresh wheat. The wheat base is highlighted a nice banana and sugary smell, but very spicy as well.
Taste is dominated by the refreshing and light wheat taste. The spiciness comes through very nicely at the end.
Mouthfeel is very nice for a wheat ale. It is a little thinner than I am used to for a wheat ale, but it makes it very refreshing and crisp.
Drinkability is awesome. There is a lot of taste to this beer that makes you want to keep drinking it. But the beer is also very crisp and refreshing. Perfect beer to have on a hot summer day.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.
Light orange, to dark lemon yellow body, slightly lighter and brighter towards the bottom of the glass. Head makes about three fleeting fingers of soapy white head to fall and quickly disappear into a good thick collar, but thin puck.
Standard hefe nose on the bouquet, but hints with much more strange peanut butter like yeast esters. Faint clove, little malt wheat chewy character, and no sense of sweetness. THere is a thick sweet peanut quality coming off this however, and a strange out there hint of nut and dry quality on the nose.
Palate hints toward hefe quality, but with spicier notes, and subdued classic hefe quality. Wet bodied with a lighter feel, and not sense of malt chewy character and depth. Almost peppery, near hot finish on the clove like ester front. Density really missing, and the bubblegum sweetness and where is the lemon.
It's an interesting take on the style, and comes off a bit strangely amped, but still a bit lifeless unfortunately. No regrets trying it though, and no harm either.
