On tap a surly, pours a clear pale light copper with a medium white head. Fruity candied aroma, banana runts candy, and clove. Taste similar to aroma, like a watered down slightly bitter hefe-weizen. Meh.

Enjoyed on tap at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, MN while having a nice meal after seeing the Mark Mothersbaugh exhibit. I can’t say I’m a fan of this one, definitely not a fan of the style, lots of wheat. Just meh.

8oz pour on tap at brewery. Minneapolis.
Beer is much more transparent than expected. Aroma is nice, hefeweizen yeast, banana, floral hops. Pretty nice. Body is medium, a little lighter than j hoped. Not a lot of depth in flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours a Hazy gold with white lacing. It has a nice banana, clove, and smoke aroma, with a flavor that is biscuit and malt with a slightly spicy finish over a light body. It's like a dunkelweizen disguised as a blond ale.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
8 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 5-30-15. Pours a clear, highly effervescent, bright brass with a small amount of off-white to beige head. I wish there were more head. Otherwise, it looks good. Lovely, tart aroma features scents of banana, orange, lemon, banana bread, and caramel. Strong smell. Flavor is a bit stronger than the aroma. Smells more Belgian but tastes more German. Champagne flavor. Banana in the flavor but weaker than the banana effect is in the aroma. Tangy and mineral. Quite pleasant in taste. Light body. Lively, frothy, and refreshing in the palate. I was expecting this to be a subpar offering by Surly’s high standards based on the other ratings, but rather it is yet another big winner from this great brewery. I really like it a lot. It smashed my expectations, and it was perfect for the warm weather day in which I drank it outside.
