a: This was a murky, wheaty brown. It was served to me with medium sized creamy head.

s: All the usual suspects, bananas, cloves, and some bubblegum. With more subdued than usual level of sweetness. I also found some dusty citrus.

t: Not quite as sweet as other examples of the style. Plenty to like though, lots of wheaty bananas, surprisingly strong citrus, and hints of clove.

m: Big and chewy with creamy carbonation.

o: Not quite top tier, but I would order one again.

Food Pairing: (1)Tuna steamed with some vegetables. Good compliment to the beer, but the food was missing a starch component which I think would have put the pairing over the top. (2)Bananas sauteed with some brown sugar, ginger and cinnamon. The citrus bitterness contradicted the sweetness of the bananas, just enough to dominate and not wholly compliment the food's flavor.
A - Cloudy golden / light yellow-orange, very nice. Abundant pillowy head which settled to nothing and left little to no lacing. Disappointing.
S - Vanilla wafers, sugar cookies, apples. Interesting. Almost like a white wine.
T - Faint vanilla and orange. Lime zest, lemon, banana. Star fruit quite prominent. Yeast flavor very present- overstated. Not nearly as sweet as I expected from the aroma.
M- Light, but bitter. Somewhat sour. Citrusy hops linger well after the swallow, with yeastyness clinging throughout the mouth if care isn't taken to enjoy at a leisurely pace.
O- Given this beer's glowing reputation here and elsewhere, I can't help but wonder if I received a mishandled bottle. The main issue involves my limited experience with this style, which prevents me from properly appreciating or assessing it. Worth another look down the road.
