An exciting beer. Malty, but in a yeasty, almost Belgian style (not overly saccharine or too cereal in its wheat body). A thick mouthfeel, and a substantial but nuanced wheat palate make this a beer well worth sampling.

Look: Hazy, and dark yellow. The white head is quick to fall. Little lacing is left behind.

Smell: Quite a bit of exquisitely ripe banana, plus pineapple and bubblegum. Despite all the sugar, the smell is somehow crisp rather than cloying, perhaps due to some soft spice notes and a whiff of citrus juice.

Taste: Bananas at the forefront, with a distinct, sugary bubblegum finish. Thankfully, all that sweetness is nicely balanced by a light bitterness and some tangy citrus flavors. As the beer warms, some cloves come through, as well as a pale malt flavor which tastes like oatmeal cookie dough when mixed with the sweet esters. Very interesting, in a good way!

Mouthfeel: The body is medium, but there is an airy lightness to the midpoint of each sip. The medium carbonation makes the bitterness in the finish more apparent. Some alcohol warming fills the stomach after swallowing.

Overall: Innovative and impressive, though not quite balanced enough to make me completely head-over-heels. Still, this is worth more than one try, and is something I'd seek out for sure.

the first brew i have had from these guys that didnt absolutely blow me away with quality and originality. not to say it isnt really good, but just that it lacks that oh my goodness element the others have had. its essentially a big strong wit, with all the fruity esters you expect from such a yeast strain, tons of wheat malt body and even sweetness, and then a lemongrassy hop finish thats cool for the style, but lost to the fragrance and potency of the yeast just a bit. its delicate too though for being so robust, its just the sweetness hits a wall mid way, and then the yeast seems naked. the alcohol doesnt show though, making this a dangerously easy drinking brew. i like the belgian intensity, but its not unique from others like it. a well made beer overall with a cool mouthfeel, but maybe a half step behind the best they have to offer.
