Much better than anticipated. Just fruity enough for my taste. Wish it was easier for me to get.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Poured a hazy gold with a huge chunky head. Aroma was lots of yeast and fruit, with some slightly bitter tones. Flavor is more of the same, yeast and banana. Grapefruit is present, but sweeter than expected. Definately above average.

steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 26, 2008
produced on 5 129 78, trappist glass / somewhat hazy, amber-gold body, with a fizzy white head that turns out to sit well; a creamy, active mouthfeel; a tangy, live aroma; barnyard elements, and a quiet, fruity (banana), somewhat spicy flavor; not bad, and i liked it.

StefanSD (2307) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2008
355 ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a slightly cloudy dark yellow-gold color with an ample sudsy white head that clumps-up and lasts a while. The aroma is moderate in strength with Belgian yeasts, cloves and a bit of banana. The flavor had plenty of banana and bit of sweet lagered malts. The mouthfeel is medium in texture, leaning a bit toward the malty and pasty. The finish shows a touch of biter but is mostly just candy sweet. Overall: Too sweet for me, I’ll pass on this one in the future, but lovers of sweet concoctions may want to consider. Recommended with reservations.

Wonderfully complex for a blonde. Hints of banana, coriander, orange, chamomile. The finish is ideal for a Belgian. Use the right glass, though.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 330ml bottle. Pours a really nice hazy pale straw colour with a huge white head, that grew to fill my snifter perfectly to the brim. Aroma: A little faint, but what there is is lovely. Some really nice banana on top of yeast. Taste: Reflective of the aroma, but very tasty actually. More of the banana (something I usually love in Belgian’s or Hefe’s). Some more fruity notes, oranges, along with some great yeasty flavours. Clove and some really nice spicy bite is what defines the finish along with a touch of alcohol. I was craving something of the Belgian sort today (as well as recently), and this one sure hit the spot! Very drinkable.
