Bottle. The pour was a medium golden amber with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that dissipated at a good steady pace down to a very light film and a small collar, which did allow for some light streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt and a light musty yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), banana, pineapple and a touch of coriander.
The taste was sweetly acidic throughout and had a sweet-tart pineapple flavor early on, then a yeasty tart fruity taste slowly but surely took over with notes of banana and citrus and a light hint of spice making their presence known towards the finish. The flavor hung around for an average time after consumption with a tart fruity yeast flavor left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a lively carbonation.
Overall an extremely flavorful brew, with great body and nice drinkable feel. I definitely see me drinking this one again...

Clear body, light golden orange in colour, with a huge white head, thick, with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma of bananas, bubblegum, wheat,
Nice taste, what one expects from a hefeweizen, lots of bananas, bubblegum especially on the aftertaste and quite a bit of clove on the finish.
Medium body, carbonation on the right levels.
Overall pretty decent and honest, and very drinkable.
