Bottle - Picked this up on a whim in a mix six and whoa...very solid stuff! Classic hazy golden appearance with a huge white head. Nose is a little off, with some sharp boozy notes mingling with the sweet wheat and banana notes. The taste is where this shines, with a smooth wheat flavor augmented by a touch of bubble gum and clove. So balanced. Smooth and creamy in the mouth. Num num num. Really good stuff!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
APPEARANCE- vibrant whit head, slightly orange golden and high turbidity.
NOSE- strong, ’crisp’ scent.
FLAVOR- definitely a European style wheat ale (vs an American style), notes of cloves and a slight bit of banana.
NOTES- not an overwhelming beer. Nice drinker for hot day, but i wouldn’t seek it out.
