Dark yellow, almost american standard looking color except a bit more darkness and body to the color. It has a huge puffy white long-lasting head as is appropriate for a wheat beer. I may have just had my first experience with diacetyl. I think I have a really high detection threshhold and this seemed to be overpowering so my guess is that this beer was loaded with the stuff. There wasn't a lot to the flavor or aroma underneath so this beer actually depended on this flaw for flavor. I didn't try their other beer at the festival because I the halfpint samples at the Southern Brewer's Festival didn't leave enough room to sample everything so I only hit brewers twice when their beer was good.

Served in a 20 oz imperial pint glass, the beer is a hazy straw color with a smallish white head.

The nose is of subtle grains, citrus and spice.

The beer has a nice, slightly astringent taste. You get a bit of pepper and a dash of coriander. The expected banana taste emerges by the 2nd sip.

The mouth is crisp and a bit light. This is an easy enough drinker given the hot humid conditions that existed while I was at the bar.

World class, no, but more than servicable.
