Pours a slightly hazed bronze with 3 fingers of fast falling eggshell white colored head. No head retention or lacing, stays a little hazed

S: Juicy fruit & pears

T: Follows the nose, some bready sweetness as well up front. More pears & breadyness as this warms, slight phenolic presence & a little bit of clove. Finishes fruity, a little dry, with some golden delicious apple skin

MF: Medium body with restrained carbonation

Drinkable, but a little restrained, even a tad timid for the style

Can. Poured a clearer yellow. Aroma is of strong Belgian Hefe yeast. Banana! Smells like Laffy Taffy Banana. Wheaty, too. Flavor is a ton of banana from there are some cloves and more wheat on the tongue. Banana pudding. Light bodied. Very peppy carbonation. Did not enjoy this beer that much.

Poured into a pint glass. Very hazy straw color with a small head that recedes quickly and doesn't leave lacing. Aroma is citrus, coriander, and unexpected grassiness. Taste is orange, coriander, and clove with a wheat backbone. Some of the spice and citrus from a hefe with the backbone of a wheat. Medium body and medium carbonation with no aftertaste. Crisp and refreshing.
Interesting blend of hefe and witbier that isn't conventional. It's more hefe than witbier so the classification is right. This is a good summer and football drinker.
