12 oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- A slightly hazy light golden color with a three finger head.

S- Wheat, bananas, cloves, some citrus hops, hints of earthy spices.

T- Citrus, bananas, wheat, cloves, earthy spices, tasty, but flavors are clashing some.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- This isn't a bad beer, but I feel Victory usually does a lot better. Flavors are just clashing too much for me.

Aroma of coriander, white pepper, straw, yeast, bananas, lemon; Saison like! Taste sweet wheat, citrus, pepper, lemon. Winter ale; Not!
