This is a beer well done beautiful color and aroma, banana bread and cloves all the way. Too bad it's kinda expensive and hard to get by where I live.

Poured from a 500ML bottle to a cheap clear glass. Golden yellow with a slight haze, extremely dense head that dissipates to about 1/4 inch that resembles whipped cream. (amazing) Very complex flavors, wheat and grain upfront, followed by a slight sweetness and then a hint of cloves.(similar to Hoegarden but not nearly as assertive) The 1/4 inch whipped cream head lasted the entire glass. I don't know if this is bottle conditioned but it also had a small layer of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Really special, glad I found it.
