[email protected] Owl Farm, Brooklyn. Murky yellow color, small white head. Banana sweetness in the nose. Light to medium-bodied. Riped sweetish banana in the flavor. Light coriander in the nose and aroma. Mellow, light. Despite the ingredients tastes more like German hefeweizen than witbier.

Disig ljusare gul öl med ett lättare vitt skum. Doft av citrusfrukt, malt och lättare vettetoner. I smaken tillkommer örtighet från koriandern.

Bought this on 7/12/16 at Krogers @ Swift Creek Midlothian Va. Bottled on Date is 6/8/16 so fairly fresh! Very cloudy and a pale yellow in appearance! Up front you definitely smell the spices from the belgian yeast, these spices hit you first then a littte orange and malt? Very carbonated and clean tasting at the end! Refreshing beer!! I am outside and very much enjoying this beer in the heat of the afternoon! ENJOY!
