Visual: Pours almost clear pale golden yellow with a good-sized head, scattered lacing, a decent layer of foamy retention, varied speed singular streams.

Nose: fruity banana-pineapple wheat malt. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: fizzy, super crisp bite

Mid-palate: (lvl-2)-soft sweetness, (MAIN) banana, wheat malts

Finish: burpy, coriander dryness, subtle orange oils, thin-bodied dry malt finish.

Summary: Not super impressionable but very drinkable texture and mouthfeel. Flavours seem a bit washed compared to a simliar brew, Upright Brewing’s Gose.
