Being brewed with wheat, barley and oats it has a complex flavor, partially tasting like a wheat beer, but not really. I thought it was different, interesting and very good.


Look: cloudy yellow hue with a 2-3 inch white frothy head

Aroma: bread, yeast, banana, maybe pear

Taste: Wheaty dough flavor with banana, pear, cloves and yeast, as well as a flavor of darker breads with bit of caramel sweetness.

Feel: medium body, creamy

Well this did make an impression on me. With an explosive entrance it frothed out the top of the bottle when opened non-stop for several minutes. Quite a yeasty explosion. Beautiful honey glow. An amazing beer.
