Pours a pale straw colour, huge cloudiness throughout. White, webbed-out head dissipates way too quickly. Good apart from the lack of head but that's a big 'apart from'.

Banana on the nose in spades, but plenty of hefe spice as well. Clove and coriander with a whisper of pepper. Quite spicy, quite nice.

Taste is quite grainy upfront, but lots of nice hefe notes come through pretty quickly. Banana, white pepper, clove and coriander. Good balance and nice flavours.

Decent body, bit of sizzle from the carbonation. Not bad for style, quite bitty as well.

Actually decent hefe. Would be nice if Squire did more of this and played with more styles rather than seemingly rehashing the 'POR-hopped pale ale' formula they tend to work with.
