3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Davis, CA. 16 ounce sample. Clove-like, banana yeasty esters in the nose. A bit of floral aroma also makes a presence. This is rather aromatic and quaffable. Transparent golden body with a small, wispy whitish head. Spritzy citrus, lemony astringency to start. Becomes more banana-like with some cereal graininess in the middle. Finishes with some light, metallic hoppiness late. Flavorful, crisp, refreshing. Thankfully, this is not their hefeweizen that is just filtered.
