look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: Cloudy rusted wheat body. Pure white head with great retention and spots of lacing.

Aroma: A lot of wheat, malts, banana, and even faint strawberry or other tart fruits.

Taste: Very grainy and malty up front. The banana is subdued and there is a pleasant spiciness I find in the taste.

Mouthfeel: A bit bright, carbonated.

Overall: Just absolutely solid.
