Aroma: Bold fruity esters and spicy phenols. Banana and clove, lots of wheat, a good dose of lemon citrus. Belgian yeast, mildly spicy although not peppery.

Appearance: Straw. Moderately hazy. Small white head dissolves quickly. Little lacing.

Taste: Lots of lemon, some black pepper. Bitter malt, Munich or Vienna and some Pilsner. Residual white sugar. Sweet from the lemon and malt. Good dose of bitter from the malt and yeast.

Mouthfeel: Light body. Finishes mildly dry. Carbonation is light, but is obviously present.

Overall: A bit odd with the lemon and strong black pepper. Some good some bad, nothing special.

Drank on 5/2/2012. Bottled 3/26/2012.
