Pours amber with a quickly fading.
Nose shows big banana notes but also sweet malt and spicy hops. Nice malt character, suggesting at honey.
Not as good flavours, very little in the way of typical wheat beer characters, mainly just honey and spicy hops.
Body feels a bit watery.

A. It has a straw color, it is completely opaque, hazy. It has a small foamy white head with no head.

S. It has a very wheaty scent to it.

T/M. It has a strong grape and grassy taste. Wheaty with a hint of alcohol. It is a bit tart. A medium body.

O. It is just a bit too thick, but just a clusterfuck of flavors. It's not bad, it just feels like a well-made macro wheat.

Drank it from a tulip glass. I don't remember the specifics as I drank it yesterday afternoon. It had a very dry Japanese, Sapporo-esque dryness that I didn't prefer at first. After a few sips it really grew on me. An interesting Beer with a very light smell.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of bananas.
T: The taste very much follows the smell and has flavors of wheat and bananas. There are some hints of spices towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a good representation of the style.
