Pours a deep red amber, and clear for a wizen, with a creamy, slightly off white head. This beer has a strong aroma, with the clove and banana coming from the yeast, and strong notes of cinnamon. The taste is sweet malt with hints of cinnamon up front, with the spicy tartness of a saison on the finish. As the beer warms the tartness becomes more pronounced, leaving a balanced and dry finish. Body is heavier than it looks due to the wheat.
