Hazy blond color; quickly disappearing head. Spicy aroma; light rubber and light wheat too. Highly carbonated, with a very simplistic flavor, some malt, too much carbonation, some spices, light banana, high alcohol perception and low bitterness.

Clear blond beer with a nice white head. Aroma of yeast and herbal hops. Herbal taste, dry, medium bodied. Nice dry herbal finish. Normally I avoid beers of bigger breweries but this one is for sure not bad.
