This was poured into a weizen glass. The appearance was a hazy/cloudy burnt orange color with a sustaining white foamy head for a good minute. Then dissipates at a nice pace. Lacing slides into the beer. The aroma starts off with some sweet bready wheatiness. Cloves and banana esters are there, but because of the green bottle, yes, mild skunkiness starting to show up. The flavor leans sweet first but ends up balancing between the sweetness and spicy clove. Dry clove spice to super mild banana esters aftertaste leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionable smooth sweet crisp feel. Carbonation seems pretty light. Overall, getting this done before it becomes a skunk bomb. Damn, I hate green bottles! Why, ugh, please stop, this is 2016. Science has disproved that these bottles should no longer be used.

I was lucky enough to have this on tap in Fredericksburg, TX on a porch on a beautiful spring evening with an exquisite wienerschnitzel. Needless to say, it was fantastic!!!
