Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy lemonade color with a pillowy white head with no lacing and moderate retention.
Smell of banana, cloves, and citrus.
Taste opens as bubblegum and develops with a taste of orange peel and finishes with a lemon pepper taste that does not linger. Creamy feel with low carbonation on the tongue.
Overall, I love this beer. It is a perfect example of the style with no pretense. I look forward to trying this beer on tap at on Milwaukees East side.
