AirForceHops (3531) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 4, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Dark brown color, very little head or retention. Nose is real similar to caramel covered banana’s. The flavor is sweet and malty with a banana nut bread type flavor. Also some assertive fruitiness that has notes of apples and clove. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and some Earthy malt tones. Yeah… not bad at all yet somehow forgettable.

Bottle shared by irishboy. Pours hazy, dark, slightly ruddy, amber. Aroma suggests old/aged malt with light fruits. Med body. Flavor is malty,fruity, esters, with a suggestion of wood. Just less than dry, but neither too sweet or too bitter.

IrishBoy (3889) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bomber from TheEpeesist. Nose is fruity with a funny pineapple guava, way overripe banana, apple note, mixed with a sweet coffee note. Lightly hazy copper with a small pale beige head. Flavor is fruity with a light cloves note, and toffee and a hint of bitterness.

bubbleflubber (1854) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours a deep caramel-amber into the glass, with a fully diminished head that leaves no ring nor lacing of which to speak. The nose is doughy and malty. Flavors are similar, light caramel, lots of sourdough, a hint of tannins, and finishing with crisp carbonation and a lingering sour cherry. The mouthfeel is medium and semi-active, with a juice-like texture. Not bad, but somewhat forgettable.

TheEpeeist (3401) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2013
22 oz bottle, love the label. Hazed cola brown with a spongy oatmeal head. Nose is candied walnuts, grape, dates and banana. Medium body with a lively tingle. Taste is green banana, clove and burnt sugar. OK for the style but nothing to bring me back.

KornDogg (537) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle. Wheat and clove aroma. Hazy dark amber body. Flavor begins with wheat and subtle sweetness, followed by clove, spice and fruit. Malt finish. Very smooth and well balanced. Alcohol is well hidden and tastes much lighter than the actual abv.

ryanscourt (798) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Ruby brown, aroma is strong sweet and spicy. Cloves banana and some caramel malt sweetness. Nicely carbonated. Banana sweetness blends nicely with the malt sweetness. Spicy finish to balance out the sweet sticky flavors. Like this style and this beer.

JohnnyJ (4559) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Draft at the gettysburg local. Pours a clear reddish brown, and an off-white head. Banana, wheat, bubble gum, light spice, and sugary sweetness. Thin-medium body. I don’t like this style very much, and I didn’t like this beer very much.

Tap. Pours clear brown with a medium, creamy off-white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is banana, wheat, earthy and spicy hops with dates, plums, ans figs. Flavor is malt dominant with banana and clove esters with light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

obguthr (4101) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Moderately strong aroma of fig, almond, stewed apples, and clove, with an undercurrent of chocolate, really nice and dunkelweizenish. Mild babyfood quality. Clear tea colored, no head. The flavor is more of a stewed apple and clove variety, much less dynamic than the aroma. Medium body, can be tart. Alcohol well concealed. Somewhere between dunkelweizen and weizen bock, it’s a good offering for fans of both styles.
