12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip at approximately 50 degrees F.

A: Pours a honey-straw gold and forms a two-finger white head, which has decent retention. The body of the beer is cloudy and hazy, though not so much that one cannot see bubbles streaming steadily from the bottom. The lacing was patchy, but clung thick where it did.

S: Light bread with banana and clove, with Belgian candi sweetness. There's also some hints of something bubblegummy, and a light grassy note.

T: An almost hefe-like profile of light wheat, clove, and banana strikes up front, and is swiftly cut into by a veritable jagged spiked wall of spicy, grassy bitter. There's a faint fruitiness underneath that, something like a pear or green apple, though it is mostly covered by the hopalanche. I don't get much funk or sour from this.

M: Light-bodied and sharply carbonated.

O: I would likely rate this beer a bit higher if it involved a bit less grassy hop bittering, and a bit more sourness / funkiness. As it stands, this drinks like an over-hopped hefeweizen.
