4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a murky dark amber brown, with a good inch of sudsy tan foam. Decent lacing, very good head retention. A little banana yeasty aroma, not a whole lot. Interesting earthy grainy aroma in there too.
Complex wheat flavors - dry and tart, sweet and bready, a little nutty, some huskiness, some caramel. Starts out medium bodied and mellow, finishes on the lighter side. Unobtrusive carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like a mix of black and gold color with a thin head. Aroma of musty bananas. A little more banana in the taste, mixed with wheat and a bit of malt. Unfortunately, it was a bit watered down and left me wanting something a bit beefier out of it. It’s still good, though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown, very murky, like a settled mud puddle or a raging Northshore stream in the spring runoff. Color of amber burnt sienna, topped with a 2 finger head of fading espresso foam head. Deep complex wheat aroma, with nuts, lemon, coriander and avocado; somewhat weak, unfortunately. Flavor starts very watery, but grows slightly to a full and dark rich wheatness. Tart and a little sour. Not many esters or strong fruit notes, like I would expect. Finish is very crisp and clean, but not appealing. Sugar on the back end. Aftertaste of slight roasted brazil nuts and sour pears. A little too sour and a little too bland and watery too be an astounding wheat.
