With the warmer days of summer upon us and only getting warmer (and more freaking humid... damn the Ohio Valley...), beers like this just sound appealing. Review is from notes taken on 5/23/2012 and poured from the bottle to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pour is a very hazy and cloudy, darker straw color with an apricot core; starts with a big two finger, billowy head with great retention -- looks like a pillow sitting on top of the glass; with the murkiness, it's difficult to see too far into it, but the carbonation appears strong near the sides of the glass.

Smell: Smell is solid and it's making my mouth water a bit -- plenty of biscuity/bready malt with a fair presence of some cloves and that smooth banana; slight citric presence, perhaps of lemongrass and just a touch of hop bitterness.

Taste: Really matches the smell to a T, and that smooth yeasty banana presence makes my night; plenty of it, and the slight bitterness in the back just balances it all out. This beer will definitely make my top ten session list with flavors like this -- getting through the six pack should prove to be no problem.

Mouthfeel: Body is between medium and light in terms of weight, and the carbonation is plenty strong, yet avoids being sharp; a mild stickiness is left on the roof of the mouth; smooth and goes down easy.

Overall: I'm lovin' it. A great beer with great flavors; body is light enough that it's not going to weigh you down but you know you're still drinking a "real" beer as opposed to something watered down that simply quenches the thirst. I will definitely be picking more of this up as time goes on.
