Aurelius (5006) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2003 Prominent banana ester nose, without much else going on in the bouquet. Muddy, brown-yellow beer. Quite tart, yeasty with a quick tart finish. Slightly substandard mouthfeel, and not much hops. Much better with the lemon.

2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 5-3-5-2-9=23
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.

BeerandBlues2 (11971) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Tap in Schaumburg. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is medium malt (straw, meal, cookie), banana, cloves, and citrus. Flavor is malt with spices. Light body and carbonation, low warmth with a dry finish.

maxwelldeux (4322) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a rather cloudy golden color. Nose has loads of citrus in there, as well as quite a bit of wheat and clove to it. Taste has a little banana in there, as well as just a bit of wheat. Meh.

OldMrCrow (2363) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Tap at the Ram in Seattle.

Pours a light cloudy brown-yellow. The aroma is a typical banana and bubblegum aroma, but slightly syrupy and rather caricatured. The flavor is actually somewhat sour and rancid relative to the target, making it thoroughly unenjoyable. Mouthfeel is thin. Another disappointment on the night.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 18, 2008
Poured the expected hazy gold color with an average white head. Bitter, medicinal aroma cut in the way of spicy clove and some sweetness. The flavor had a weird, dry minty, medicinal flavor that reminded me of Rolaids. The mouthfeel was fine. Not good.

dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2009
tap, thick bodied dark yellow with no head, (not a classic wheat cloudy appearance), almost no aroma with faint sweet malt notes, no hops on nose, taste the same, no hops noted, no real banana or clove, easy drinkin, but nothing special

Pours a cloudy yellow with no carbonation and minimal head. Orange peel aroma and strong orange taste on top of wheat malt. Slight medicine taste and aftertaste on a medium body.

Draft at Humperdinks in Arlington. Cloudy orange. Aroma of intense and massive (?artificial) bubblegum. Taste is strangely bitter and sour. Unpleasant.
