Bottle: Unfiltered
Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.
A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A bright, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

Koelschtrinker (12638) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Süßer Lebkuchengeruch, etwas nach Schokolade. Süß-herber Antrunk, ausgewogen. Sehr gewürzig und eigen werdend, z.T. im hinteren Bereich unstimmig. Gewürzig-bitter im Abgang, zu krass, daher disharmonisch. 8/8/9/9/10/8

bhensonb (12440) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Almost perfumy aroma of light fruits and a bit of yeast. (This one may be several years old) Nice golden color (with chunks!) and a vigorous white head that laces a bit. Starts with a light fruity flavor, develops a bit of malt, some spicey mix - light clove & cardomon? The finish is sweetish with an underlying hint of bitter. In the end the mouth is left with a very mild bitter. I’d say this light ale ages very well (in the cool dark).
