3.06/5 rDev -7%
Served from a 12 oz bottle.
Pours a semi-opaque coppery orange with a substantial off white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving about a quarter inch of foam.
Aroma is disappointingly faint, featuring none of the classic banana bubblegum notes I associate with this style. Basically all that is to be picked up is a muted wheaty, malty presence. While it is not unpleasant, it is certainly underwhelming.
Taste is basically a continuation of this trend, which is to say that what is there is pleasing, but I wish there were a lot more of it. Wheat and malt notes are in the fore, but far too muted to make much of an impact.
Mouthfeel is actually above average here. This beer is fairly substantial yet still very smooth and easy drinking. Carbonation is vey pleasant and invigorating.
Overall, this beer is pleasant, and would be appealing on a very hot summer day when you are looking for something to quench your thirst. That said, there are several other beers that are far more satisfying and representative of this style.
