Medium sized white head, decent retention and lace. Lightly hazy with a yellow, light gold color. Nose is nice, Citrus, lightly bready malts, orangey and spicey, light bananna notes too boot.

Clean, spicey, almost dry finish. A groovy Wit! Thanks to Mr. Fry for the bottle. YEEHAW!

On tap at Logan’s pre-GABF party. Has a really strong yeasty sulfur-like aroma. Cloudy pale yellow with a thick white head. Palate is very milky. Tastes of lemon and banana from the esters. Cloves as well. Hard to get past the sulfurous aroma, though.

Very strange...Okay i got two different bottles (both were in identical bottles) one poured darker than the other. The darker version had plenty of floaters that seemed to be suspended throughout the beer. Lighter beer had more head and lacing. hoppy aromas. flavor was similar on both bottles. with flavors of oats, wheat, corriander, and banana. finish’s with a light hint of hops.

Tap @ Logan’s Pre-GABF party. Poured a hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma was clovey, yeasty, sweet and wheaty. The aroma seemed dry, like dry air not dry lacking sweetness. The flavor wheaty with light notes of clove and banana. The finish was dry with some bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Pre-GABF party. Hazy straw color with a huge head. Clove is fairly strong in the aroma with hints of banana. The flavor is very quite good with balanced clove and cinnamon. There is a pleasing yeasty flavor spiked with a hint of fruit (reminiscent of banana and pear). The mouth feel is very creamy with is likely contributed to by the addition of oats to this brew. I enjoyed this and hope to have it again one day.
