The beer starts out with a prominent rich, bready, grainy wheat character in the aroma balanced by a moderate level of ripe banana, very light clove and a light citrus tartness. The flavor follows the aroma closely, and adds light mixed berry fruit and a low, pleasant hop bitterness that helps to dry out the residual malty sweetness that emerges mid-palate. The banana and clove slowly fade as the beer warms. A very light spiciness from the wheat develops late and lingers into the aftertaste. The fusion of German Weizen characteristics creates a unique and flavorful beer that is pintable and enjoyable to drink.
