Deep red / brown in color. It pours with a large wheat head. The aroma is sweet with caramel malt, fruity ester and a nutty quality. The flavor starts sweet but then moves on to a spicy phenol, banana ester, then to a roasty chocolate malt. It is more agressivly flavored than its German cousins but more flavor is not a bad thing al long as you are ready for it.
