4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle - BevMo
Aroma - suprisingly fruity, solid wheat base...reminds me of fruit cocktail.
Appearance - cloudy golden orange body, 2" white rocky head, great retention
Taste - caramel, cloves, banana, light citrus zest, really nice
Palate - it defines smoothness and velvet/creamy texture. Carbonation melds perfectly.
Overall - world class greatness here, really a great price too

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a very hazy golden body with a tall vanilla head. Nice retention with lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is mostly clove and overripe banana, but bready wheat and clover honey notes are picked up underneath. Creamy medium body has an ideal carbonation. Taste mirrors the aroma. Clove and ripe banana, accented by a lemony zing, yeast, and sweet bready malts. Subtle hops add a spicy/earthy bitterness. Excellent all around.

Enjoyable beer. Good head, strong taste, solid head. It’s a rather strong beer so enjoy slowly.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Brown, cloudy, unfiltered
Aroma: Banana and cloves, not too strong. (But I have a weak sense of smell.)
Palate: Typical wheat beer texture, soft feel with medium weight.
Flavor: Fruit(Banana)-spice-malt-and hops can all be detected, higher alcohol content (7.1%) is well hidden. Hop flavor is detectable but low.
Overall: Great wheat beer. Very similar to German Hefe-Wizens which is my favorite style and this fits in very nicely. The higher alcohol contentment isn’t noticeable in the taste. I’ve tried this several times; sometimes the malt flavor is stronger and the banana flavor is less whereas other time the banana flavor is stronger and the malt flavor is less.

solid overall; but nothing special; lots of flavors/aromas but not much really stood out. I also had an odd taste at the end that I am not sure of; would be a good thirst quencher on hot day but won’t go out of my way to try again..

Bottle. Poured an cloudy yellow color with an average creamy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate banana, wheat and clove aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a completely clouded yellow gold into the glass with a large white head. Aroma is bready with banana and clove esters. Flavor has a bit of bubblegum flavor as well as a very low amount of alcohol coming through for a 7.1% beer. Good beer, would like to try it fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Banana, apricot, flowers, yeast, soap, and spices are all detected within the fine aroma (although the soap is a little weird). Golden orange cloudy body with a big white head and frothy lacing. Dry with a boozy kick and a medium malt body. Crisp wheat, banana and pear along with apple fritters and cloves. A sturdy brew."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Cloudy yellow orange colour, dense creamy white head. Aroma of bananas, wheat, yeast, as it warms some sharp alcohol as well. Flavour is sweet, fruity, banana and pear, lots of yeast, some chemical plastic-like note (probably from the yeast), bittersweet finish with some alcohol. Medium bodied. This one is not on top form I guess.
