Pours dark orange with a finger width white head, that disappeared in seconds. Taste and smell is of banana and wheat. Mouthfeel is nice and medium. Overall what a great beer.

Pours golden yellow with thick foam and sticky lacing. Smells of strong wheat tones, biscuit, malt, and banana. The taste is really nice, this is a great beer I must say, nice wheat flavors with a good warm biscuit blended in and banana on the back side. I really like this beer, I am a big fan of the style and Surly did this one justice, excellent!!

Great tasting beer, almost ''wine like'' smell to it. Good transition beer for someone looking to get into Tripels.
