look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance is hazy gold and straw like with a huge white creamy head. Lacing sticks to the glass and a 1/2" layer of head hangs around to the last drop.

This beer smells great and has a strong aroma; can smell it almost a foot away from the glass. Strong aromas of lemon zest, bananas, and orange.

Taste is similar to the smell with a banana flavor up front and a lemony aftertaste. Is a very carbonated beer that has great mouthfeel; a light feeling beer that is full of flavor.

Overall this is a great beer, would really be good outside on a summer day. I don't drink this style much but will be picking up more as the weather gets nicer. Looking forward to trying more wheat beers to see how they compare.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Golden yellow, cloudy, rich full creamy head, a lot of carbonation, excellent.

Aroma: Clove, banana, sweet smelling beer. As expected.

Taste: This is a flavor explosion. So much going on. Cloves, banana, but also lemony, honeydew melon. Not overly sweet. No off flavors. Long sweet finish. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Medium, crisp, carbonated but not overly so.

Overall: An excellent example of this style, and this is one of my favorite styles of beer. This would be enjoyable with almost any meal or in any weather.
