What our panel thought

Aroma: “Clas­sic hefe aroma of ba­nana, strong clove, earth­i­ness, herb, and bread. Leans to­ward spicy phe­nols, smoke, and black pep­per, with bub­blegum and over­ripe pineap­ple to back them up. Over time, the smoke be­comes stronger, with a hint of vinyl emerg­ing.” Fla­vor: “As­sertive ba­nana and spice, blended with smoke and clove—more so in the fla­vor than on the nose. Some honey and wheat that’s lightly tart and cracker-like. Cit­rus and orange notes, as well as grassy and herbal hops, and low-to-mod­er­ate bit­ter­ness and acid­ity. The body is medium, and the fin­ish is bit­ter and dry.” Over­all: “It’s bal­anced be­tween the fruity es­ters and spicy phe­nols and crusty wheat fla­vors, with a soft body and a touch of bit­ter­ness in the fin­ish to clean it up.”
