Exceptional appearance! Fluffy thick white head with tons of lacing.The color is a hazy brownish-red.Tastes stronger than the 6.5% ABV the bottle says. Maybe because it has alot of body.Sweet malt nose but not much more than that.Very drinkable with crisp bite.No real hop taste or smell,but there is some bitterness on the finish. Would like to see more hops.Has a bready,dry,grain taste.

Appearance - pours a gorgeous clear deep copper/light auburn colour. very nice off-white head with a lot of volume and good lasting effect. there is some nice lacing occurring along with some good carbonations.

Smell - banana, malts, sweetness, citrus and some fine hops, very dynamic yet good smelling beer.

Taste - very clean and fresh tasting beer. this beer offers the malts upfront with some banana and citrus taste. the hops finish the beer off with some slight bitterness but nothing lasting.

Mouthfeel - add volume brings a little more bitterness out, but for the most part the beer remains the same.

Overall - such a fine tasting beer upset I only have one to taste. would love to sit back and have a few good sessions with this beer.
