Taster at the RAM, Schaumburg. Properly cloudy. A nice ’nana and ester nose which matches up with the taste. The menu here refers to "Vanguard" hops, which I don’t know what they mean in a German beer, but they don’t drag this beer off-style. Nice fizzy mouthfeel to the end.

12/15/2013. Hazy golden color with a white head. Not my favorite style, but one of the better ones I tried, so maybe that say more about the rest of the line up. Citrus, spice and banana with bready flavors and a spicy bitter finish

Pour on tap at the brewpub, slightly hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight grass, clove, banana, hints of bubblegum, touch of biscuit, bread, slight more spice and yeasty notes, fairly clean overall. Taste is a mix of slight bubblegum, clove, hints of biscuit and bread, slight spice, finishing yeasty, slightly sweet, dry.

Hazy blond, white head.
Smell decent banana clove.
Taste gum and clove. Bit of a bite in the after taste.
Not a bad American take on it.

I can’t taste bananas or bubble gum or cloves or tuna or anything else here but hops and citrus. Unfiltered but bold hops and soapy kicks. My failure not theirs, I admittedly can’t drink these hopster varieties. ZThe Brewery is excellent

Growler from the RAM in Wheeling brought by ck1 to the Mom-without-Bill tasting. Thanks bro! Banana and clove. Fairly light but with some body. A decent representation of the style.

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

On tap at C.B. & Potts Collindale. Milky yellow-orange appearance, unfiltered with a small white head. The aroma and flavor is banana, citrus fruits, wheat malts, clove, coriander and herbs/spices. Light to medium body with a soft creamy feel. Pretty refreshing.

From notes. Draft at the schaumburg location. Decently sweet with a good deal of banana. Ok beer, but nothing to get excited over.
