Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The dream begins with open top fermentation. At high krausen a foamy, rocky yeast head crests the sides of the fermenter releasing notes of black pepper and spicy clove. Unfiltered and cloudy with yeast, it's slightly tart & downright refreshing.

I am not much of a Wheat beer fan but this beer is a pleasant surprise. Decent banana flavors and hints of cloves. The color is a pale golden yellow. Not overly bubbly as you sometimes find with Whit beers. the taste is well balanced as well. There is hints of citrus that goes well with the rest of the beer. summer or winter this is a good beer to drink

A- Pours a nice bright straw color with just the slightest bit of hazy to it. A small white head quickly recedes leaving no lacing.

S- Smells of banana, clove, lemon, bready yeast, and a bit of pepper.

T- The taste follows the nose; wheat, banana, yeast, clove, other spices, and a bit of lemon zest in the finish. Very solid taste.

M- Fairly light in both body and carbonation.

D- Very easy to drink.

Pours a clear light gold into a tulip glass

A: Clear and light gold. No chill haze

S: Wheat, fruit, slight banana, slight clove

T: Wheat hits you first followed by a subtle fruitiness

M: Light bodied and refreshing. Very clean

O: A good example of an American Wheat. Clean, refreshing and light. The wheat flavor dominates with subtle hints of banana and clove. I will buy again.

A - Pours a bright golden-yellow color with just a touch of haze, with a finger of crisp white head. The head fades down to a ring around the glass with a touch of lacing.

S - Aroma is full of bananas flavor. There is also some nice yeast and wheat in the background to balance. Light citrus towards the end (lemon).

T - Starts off with some wheat flavor and also some of the banana flavor. Touch of yeast in the background. Through the middle more a more powerful yeast flavor with a touch of lemon and citrus. The finish has a lot of wheat and banana flavor with some yeast mixed in that lingers.

M - Medium-light bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Really smooth and crisp with a pretty nice finish. Only a touch watery.

D - Very drinkable. Very crisp and refreshing. The flavors are really nice here and pretty well balanced. The banana flavor is pretty nicely mixed in.
