3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a quickly fading.
Nose shows big banana notes but also sweet malt and spicy hops. Nice malt character, suggesting at honey.
Not as good flavours, very little in the way of typical wheat beer characters, mainly just honey and spicy hops.
Body feels a bit watery.

I’m not clever, or big. I’m a little pea. I like owls though. Pretty and deadly. Not like me either. We agreed tonight that we’d blow a stadium filling behemoth rock band off the stage. Not short on confidence are we?
