The beer pours out in a hazy golden yellow color.

The aroma is just spot on. Big banana, clove, some lemon, orange.

The flavor follows with a refreshing banana, clove, and a hint of orange/lemon.

The beer has a good smooth mouthfeel that cleans off the palate nicely.

This beer has a really good amount of flavor and really sets the standard for the style. Still, not mindblowing, but just really well done. A bit lighter on the mouthfeel than I possibly prefer.
