Pours golden with nearly no head. Aroma is wheaty with banana yeastiness, some sweet honey, and a hint of spicy grain. Strong banana flavor up front with a sweet finish and just a hint of funky yeast throughout. Feels like more of a hefe than a witbier. Plenty of carbonation gives a little prickle on the tongue. Crisp finish that is not normally present for me in a wit. This is actually pretty pleasant and I would be happy to have another.
