Appearance: Probably the best look of any wit. Lots of foam and great lacing. Thick banana yellow in hue.

Smell: Banana, clove, yeast, and some minerals. Not amazing, but it hits all the right notes.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Lots of clove with a hint of banana. A bit sour in the finish. Definitely some grape/wine flavors here. Mouthfeel is very full-bodied and crisp. I taste some lemon as well.

Overall Drinkability: I was excited to try this one. It's quite refreshing despite the fact that it's a bit heavier. Overall, I'm not in love with this, but I definitely recommend it as a very good witbier.
