Appearance- The beer was a bright golden straw color with a white head.

Smell - The banana shines with a bright spiciness.

Taste - Banana comes to the front. There is a pleasant spiciness with hints of clove and a hint of cinnamon. There is a presence of dried green apples a yeasty backbone.

Mouthfeel - The yeast adheres the taste to the roof of the mouth.

Overall - A spot-on interpretation of the style.

Very pale, clear yellow color with close to three fingers of airy white head that are quick to dissipate into almost nothingness. Big banana aroma. Quite clean and crisp smelling. Mildly soapy, but in a good way. Top notch. Light hefeweizen banana flavors in the taste, again with some soapy notes, a little bubblegum, clove, white pepper. Light bodied with some slight creaminess to it. A great brew. Would love this on a hot summer night.
