The aroma is a bit yeasty but not very much like the style. The appearance is cloudy dark gold. The taste is not sweet. The palate is average. Overall its barely average.

Bottle from Julios. Pours out a cloudy light orange color. Frothy head disappears quickly. There is a Hefeweizen hidden in here, but somehow the funk and the boozy flavors dominate. Very muddled.

mansquito (5976) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is spicy, with light banana notes (I was expecting much more), some spiciness, light hoppiness, and bubblegum. Taste, at first, seemed to me like that of a Belgian ale. Only after a few sips did I really get the sense of what the brewers were going for in the beer. In any case, it wasnt bad.

Sample at Atlantic Beer Festival Moncton. Hazy pale yellow color, huge fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of lightly spiced banana. Taste is bitter medicinal clove.

Hazy golden color with a small white head. Nose is mostly banana with some spices (Cloves or Coriander). Extremely sweet mouthfeel but its still does a good job balancing the sweetness with the alcool and the small hop finish . Very nice sweet beer

Not a huge fan of this, but Im glad I tried it. The beer looked great with its dark hazy straw colour, with a frothy head that was quickly gone. Aroma was of grapes, citrus, wheat, grass, and coriander. The taste wasnt very pleasant, which included grapes, bubblegum, citrus, and musty old booziness. I also found the body a little off putting with a sweet syrup taste and low carbonation, that left some tingle on the tongue.
