Nice foamy head. Almost explosive in its headiness. Cloudy light caramel color, almost orange. . Very nice light color. Light taste but still bold. Tangy but not sour. One of the best liquid bread weiss biers. Very nice thick feel. Light earthy smell. Light on the alcohol. A great solid buzz.

Opaque golden-orange color. Weak lacing, slides right back into the glass. Little head. Highly carbonated; even spritzy. Strong banana and orange flavors, biscuits. Sweet. Light mouthfeel, but a little creamy as well. Zero booziness.

Overall: This is definitely a sessionable beer. Very easy to gulp. Non-offensive for sure. The flavors are pretty straight forward: banana, orange and biscuits. Nothing too complex. Not enough backbone or bold flavors. I would say this is an average to slightly above average brew.
