Bottle. Cloudy, yellow-orange color with a tall fine head. Aroma of wheat malt, cloves, citrus, bananas. Less fragrant than expected. Rather spicy flavor, medium malt richness, bananas and cloves, pepper, a touch of citrus. Somewhat grainy. Not as rich as usual, lighter but spicier than usual as well. Interesting, and good enough, though somewhat lacking on the malt side.
