==Introduction==

So often, crafty beer gets a bad rap for being produced by macrobreweries in order to take up shelf space at the supermarket in place of microbrews. While I do not often review these beers as I prefer local and microbreweries, sometimes I do get free stuff from friends at parties. This one, since I liked it, my friend gave me a bottle. I found this one to be, pretty tasty. Check it out!

Aromas:
Bananas, clove spice, vanilla, caramel, apple pie notes, biscuit bread, cereal grains, hazelnut hints, coriander spice, orange peel, peppercorn, cinnamon, honey, strawberry yogurt hints and brown sugar.

Flavors:
Bananas, coriander spice, orange peel, peppercorn, cinnamon, honey, strawberry yogurt hints, ginger, clove spice, vanilla, caramel, biscuit bread, cereal grains, hazelnut hints, brown sugar, apple pie, pecan pie hints, cane sugar and apples.

Aftertaste:
Finishes with Coriander spice, cinnamon, ginger, banana and strawberry hints. No alcohol in the taste, hazy honey colored body, crisp and refreshing mouthfeel with an easy to moderate drinkability.

Overall:
A very good wheat beer. Despite this one being from a macro, they made a consistent product. The Banana and strawberry yogurt flavors are delicious on this one. I feel while it is a well-made beer, people may not want to try it since it is from a Macro. This one, like the ShockLate are some of my favorites even if they are from Macros. I don’t agree with what they do for the shelve space nor would I go out to buy it but when I like something, I am sure to put it here. So if you like wheat brews you may or may not like this one.

Anime Corner:
Tomoe Mami from Madoka Magica was used in this pairing since I wanted to find a piece of artwork that would go with the colors of the label but also the whole banana them of the beer mainly.
