Served in bubble pint glass. Poured a totally opaque, cloudy yellow (I believe the keg had gotten quite shook up in transit) with about an inch of bright white head that had good retention and very light lacing.

The aroma was very good, noticeable yeast and wheat scents up front with some spices and coriander in the background. On the tongue there was a very bold banana taste across the tongue, with a sharp spicy aspect tickling on the finish.

The body was quite good, much fuller than most of the style and was just a bit sticky on the tongue. Drinkability was very good, you could easily have several of these. Overall, a pretty good beer that's different from the typical examples of the style. Certainly worth trying when you see it.
