Had this in the Mug Club 20 oz mug. Very yeasty and had a spicy taste to it. Was a very pale yellow, also smelled of banana. It was very carbonated and you could really taste the malt at the finish. However, yet again just about any beer by Rock Bottom is OK in my book. Not my favorite at Rock Bottom, but a good beer overall.

Served on tap in a big ol' mug at the brewpub.

Appearance: Cloudy pale yellow (akin to a Twinkie!) capped by a small layer of foam which remained throughout most of the consumption. No real lacing to speak of.

Smell: Light smell of oranges and coriander spiciness with bready and yeasty undertones. Faint whiffs of banana esters come through occasionally.

Taste: Slightly sour/tart wheaty malts with a splash of lemon and coriander/pepper on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Overly aggressive carbonation kinda hurts the tongue a bit, but keeps it light. Perhaps the keg pressure was too high or something?

Drinkability: Easily drinkable and good for sessions. Some off flavors and sensations here and there that prevent this from being frikkin' incredible. Still, this is a nice little wit. The new brewer apparently likes wheat beers so I can't wait to see if he delves into some of the other sorts in the near future.
