Appears an amber brown with a nice sized off white head that holds nice retention. Nice sticky lacing is left on the inside of the glass.
Smell is bittersweet with a toffee like malt, and a nice fruitiness.
The taste is of the same aromas.
Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly sweet, sour, and bitter.
Not too shabby.

On tap this week at the brewpub outside bar. Very lacey, and the head retention was one quarter inch. Bananna, wheat plus in it so have made it more summery . Sweetish. Not so drinkable but OK. Tasted a bit boozy. Active carbonation in yellow body.Definatey a reformulation.
