Poured a glowing golden yellow, with minimal head and lacing, sediment dancing liberally. Missed the bottle-memo on how to pour. . . my bad. Smell was dominated by the banana tones, while the taste really brought everything together: the fruity, citrusy notes, as well as the spicier clove notes. Loved it, would most certainly put it on par with with a lot of Bavarian brews I've had. Mouthfeel was great as well, a bit less bubbly than similar styles.

A - Pours into my glass hazy golden straw in color with about two fingers of white head, moderate retention and lacing.

S - Banana, clove, yeast, bread, citrus floral hops, and wheat.

T - Has a lot more to offer than the aroma, sweet and very banana forward off the bat, as that mellows more of the clove, yeast, bubblegum and lemon citrus come forward.

M - Medium bodied with crisp/bright carbonation.

O - Was pleasantly surprised by this one, somewhat muted on the aroma spectrum, but the flavor profile is very enjoyable.
