look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass, no freshness date visible, but it does have a diagram on how to pour the beer.

A: Pours sort of a pale and cloudy straw yellow with a pure white half inch head. No lacing. Very very pale looking, almost the sickly sort if you get my drift.

S: Good deal of yeasty funk with hints of orange slices and bananna. Not much else though

T/MF: A bit watery but still has a good enough mellow orange bananna and bread yeast flavors in here but they all fell a bit watered down. There is a good deal of carbonation that leaves the mouth tingly but not overly dry.

D: Not a bad wit but there are better ones out there and for less.
