ABV: 4.8% | IBUS: 15 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“A foamy, rocky yeast head crests the sides of the fer­men­tor, re­leas­ing notes of black pep­per and spicy clove. Un­fil­tered and cloudy with yeast, it’s slightly tart and down­right re­fresh­ing.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “It’s su­per bready, giv­ing it a ba­nana bread char­ac­ter. Ag­gres­sive phe­nols—mostly clove, but also a light off-aroma sim­i­lar to open­ing a fresh ten­nis ball can­is­ter. Light musty/yeasty aro­mas, and a hint of cit­rus and other fruit es­ters.” Fla­vor: “Wheat up front, with clove spici­ness. The burnt phe­nols are more muted on the taste. The ba­nana and bub­blegum es­ters are stronger in the fla­vor, with a hint of tart­ness, and a nice clove zing on the fin­ish. Mod­er­ate car­bon­a­tion, chewy body, and a dry fin­ish. The veg­e­tal fla­vor starts to dis­si­pate as it warms and be­comes much sweeter.” Over­all: “Big fruiti­ness with the light ba­nana and le­mon. There’s some of that burnt plas­tic phe­nol in the fla­vor that keeps it from be­ing a world-class beer. The wheat in the smell isn’t in­dica­tive of the low breadi­ness in the fla­vor.”
