Sampled draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, Texas.
Pale orange, cloudy. Big estery banana aroma. Balanced sweetness along with some fruitiness. Starts promising the finish is disappointingly short and syrupy where metal gives way for banana pie.

Cloudy orange-blond color with creamy head. The aroma is lightly fruity and feety. Some wheat flavor, mild spices and banana, light feeling of stale water.
A simple one.

2006-12-17, draught at Humperdink’s, Dallas, 5-2-5-2-10=24
Muddy golden color. True aroma, with some banana. Ordinary flavor, ordinary body, light spices and fruitiness, some medicinal aftertaste. Drinkable.

yngwie (13219) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It pours an unclear, orange-golden body topped by a small, white head. Lots of cloves in the aroma, with decent leves of banana and bubble gum. Some generic fruityness and a little malty touch too. The flavor too has too much cloves, but the levels of malts, bubble gum and banana are nice. Medium body, perhaps a tad low on carbonation. Cloves and bubble gum finish, some fruityness too. Decent indeed, but not impressive. 130629

Salem, OR: Cloudy yellowy tan colour. Malty, bananaish aroma with light marshmallow malts. Quick palate is moderately sweet with just a touch of spicy accent. Finishes with the slightest bit of wheatiness.

Ratman197 (9556) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Good banana aroma, nice yellow color but not cloudy enough for the style looks more like a krystal wheat. Flavor is fair, but not enough banana and clove flavors for my taste.
