On tap at Rock & Brews in Paia, HI.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thick swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, banana, spice, and slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with wheat, caramel, banana, and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a solid aroma, but the flavors are a bit muddled in my opinion.

Serving type: on tap.
