COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer.

cthomas2390 (211) - Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Pours hazy amber with significant head. Clove on the very front with a subtle bit of bubblegum and some homemade banana bread if you really get your nose into it. Banana wheat tang on the front end bit, bread crust follows and theres a mild but identifiable hop bitterness right at the end. High carbonation, medium body but very creamy.

(Bottle) Clear amber brown with big dense white head. Pleasant subtle aroma, mainly banana ester. Medium body with plentiful soft carbonation. Nice balance between sharper fruity wheat flavours and the caramel malt. An excellent beer.
