A - Pours a cloudy golden-yellow with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly, leaving a solid ring around the glass.
S - Ripe banana and cloves with a good amount of sweet pale malt.
T - More hefeweizen notes of ripe sweet banana and spicy cloves. Plenty of wheat and pale malt, along with an ever-so-slight bubblegum taste. Incredibly balanced, the banana and clove are excellent.
M - Creamy with a medium-thin body. Carbonation is nice and crisp.
D - Excellent drinkability, an almost perfect summertime beer.

A: Hazy blonde, with a nice and semi-creamy white head that sites a strong two-fingers over a 10 ounce pour.

S: Wheat graininess, a scent like fruit peel, with soft banana scents upon a swirl - I don't really pick them up a great deal before a swirl. Clove aromas are nice, with a mellow 'field grass' scent.

T: The bottles makes a pretty accurate description of 'ripe banana and spicy clove.' There's not a whole lot more to add onto that, really. Easy going on the palate, but robust enough to suggest more. Good stuff.

M + D: A good bit of body to it, almost a little slippery - molten butter slick in some ways, though that's a very unappealing way to describe it and that's not actually the case. I sometimes prefer wheat styles to be a little crisper, but it's not always something that comes with the style... still, it's a nice, low alcohol, inviting summer brew that I will be looking forward to as gets even hotter.

Aroma - Bananas, citrus, spice. Actual a good amount of spice.

Appearance - Cloudy yellow with a tint of orange. Big white head from the pour was slow to dissipate thanks to a lot of carbonation.

Taste - First banana then spice carriers on for some time. Most of the flavors of this beer are upfront without much on the backend. Just no real aftertaste.

Notes - I like the amount of carbonation that really complimented this beer.
