Appearance is hazy, straw colored. Very foamy put that didn't settle for a few minutes.
Smells immediately wheaty, banana notes, almost a slight sour at the end.
Slight banana notes on the immediate taste, classic wheat bite. Wishing the punch was just a tad stronger.
In the mouth it feels pretty mellow, doesn't stick around too long, a small amount of Bute but not too prevalent.
Over all, a great wheat beer, would definitely drink another if I didn't buy a build your own six pack.

Hazy light gold color. Huge creamy foam, excellent lacing. Aroma of bananas, cloves and bit of hay. Some low grainy-sweetness. Medium-light body, very creamy, soft carbonation, bit of yeast spiciness. Low dry finish, short lasting. Some sweetness passed from flavor to a finish. Fantastic wheat beer.
