A-Nice bright yellow gold, two finger head that doesn't last long.

S-Wheat with clove banana. None of the grassy/spice notes I expect from a BPA

T-Very similar to the nose. Not much bitterness. But the wheat and banana mix well and taste sweet. Had again, too sweet, balance isnt't where it should be

M-Medium bodied, not much carbonation, possibly on the watery side as well.

O-An easy drinking summer beer however the are so many other options in the style.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, honey, some Belgian yeast, some spices and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel, honey and some spices. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are definitely others in the style that I would choose first.

Best by Sept notched on label.

Pours golden with a thin head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is of mild bubblegum with citric spicing.

The taste is of light bubblegum with citric and light floral notes. Semi-sweet turning semi-dry in the finish.

Medium carbonation with a light-to-medium body. Smooth.

Not a bad brew. Nothing special, though. Easy enough to drink with a light "Belgian" character.
