Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours a dark hazy amber color. Looks like carbonated ice tea. Medium head with a tight carbonation. Aroma is clove, bananas. Flavor has a lot of spicy yeast character with a great body. Another solid offering from Bullfrog.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
Deep amber-red pour. The nose is light and very, very spicy. Lots of earthy/spicy rye malt and a kiss of citrus character. No banana at all in this one. The palate is very rich and creamy. Softly spicy with an intense rye flavour. Brashly aromatic with a lot of spice from the yeast and from the grain. Pretty damn awesome, actually.

Glouglouburp (6096) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
In short: Rye, ripe bananas, cloves and more. A strange genre bending beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Strong nose of cloves, ripe bananas and rye bread. Taste follows up on the nose. Toasted rye bread, toasted wheat, browned bananas, cloves, some caramel, some bubblegum. The best way to describe this beer would be to say that it is a successful albeit strange cross between a Dunkel Weizen and a Rye beer. I give it extra points for creativity but one glass was enough. I do appreciate how this brewery breaks all the rules. Screw the conventions, screw the conservatives, Sex, Drugs & Roggen Roll!!!

LilBeerDoctor (3506) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear brown with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, bready malt, and spices. Flavor of melon, bready malt, a touch of smoke, yeast, and pepper. Pretty tasty and an interesting beer. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

nimbleprop (5083) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a nearly opaque, ruddy, rusty copper amber with a thin, spitty white head. Nose is banana, cloves, bubblegum, ripe fruits. The Hef yeast is really strong in the nose. Flavor is malty, sweet, hearty grains, banana, clove. Finish is medium bodied and sweet.

tgncc (2845) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Spicy aroma, bready on the nose, like rye bread. Flavor is like a belgian yeast strain (these guys must use this strain in 90% of their beers), also, rye bread, spicy. The appearance is a somewhat hazy amber (i expected a slightly darker, thicker beer for this style.) Drinkable, but not especially great.

MiP (13724) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Sweet banana aroma. Muddy dark brown colour. Almost no head. Banana flavour, slightly spicy. OK bitterness.

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2010
tap @ bullfrog. probably my favorite that was on tap. hazy brown pour, clovey, cinnamon and fruity banana in the nose. Love the rye in this one.. gives it some light minty notes. Toffee and bread malts with a touch of funk and spice. Well balanced, finishes up with some yeasty, hay flavors.

j12601 (6707) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2010
On tap at Bullfrog. Pours a hazed brown with a thin beige head. Soft malt, spicy yeast. Malt and a little bit of caramel. Soft gentle bitterness. Bits of toast. Quite good.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Appearance: Murky brown, classic dunkel look, with an off white 2 finger foam crown. Smell: Clove, over ripe banana, bavarian yeast, and a nice touch of smoke and a hint of cinnamon. Taste: Same as nose but even better than smelling it! Wow this brew really comes together nicely. I’m always excited when a beer is "gestalt" aka when the "sum is greater than its parts" and this was such a beer! Complex but balanced! Mouthfeel: On the thin side of medium....a hair too thin IMHO. Drinkability: I wish I brought a growler of this home instead of the Edgar IPA. Home Run Bullfrog! Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-06-2009
