3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Sweet Mullets brewery’s taproom, just west of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with a creamy off-white head that has some excellent retention and extra lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some pickled ginger, light banana and some very faint clove. Taste is light bodied, with plenty of hefe flavors including banana notes, clove, golden grain malt with wheat and, of course ginger. Finish is quite smooth and semi-sweet with a hint of tart fruit with an excellent balance aftertaste of banana yeast, clove and ginger.

On tap at Sweet Mullets. Pale golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is mild with ginger, banana and spices. Taste is on the milder end and the ginger accents the banana, clove and yeast nicely.

On tap at the brewery, was really surprised to see the abv at 3.9% because it had a ton of flavor, pours a clear yellow with aroma of sweet grain and some fruit, the flavor has a nice amount of banana mixed in with the spices in the finish, pretty darn good.
