Almost looks like a watery banana milkshake. Cloudy as fog soup. Blonde and almost illuminated by light refracting off of suspended yeast muck. If the head looked anything better than foam smear, I think I'd feel seriously turned-on right now.
Thick, hefty wheat and white bread with prominent yeast banana (unripe), stanky lemon, pineapple, and a clip of white pepper. Fair note of orange in here, too. Smells like Pineapple-banana-orange Dole spilled on a slice of Wonder Bread. Fantastic.
Bready with thick slices of white, partially stale. Creamy banana and wheat, with an emphasis on the wheat. Banana peels back a bit and gets countered with lemon and orange citrus and yeasty nuttiness. No lingering spice effect, the pepperiness is gone. Tangy gooseberry finish with a flighty bitterness.
Thick, supple, and creamy with a harmonious carbonated crispness. Excellent.
Pretty damn good, despite the initial letdown after the nose.

Quite dry, that's the thing that sticks out. Smallish head but classic yellow and cloudy look. Fair amount or lacing. Clear banana on the aroma but it didn't show up so much in the flavor. Quite tart along with the dryness and a distinct citrus (lemon flavor). Reasonably full-bodied and decent softness on feel, but also some prickliness.
Good and solid, not exceptional, but good and solid.
On tap at Sweetwater in Burlington.
