3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, cloudy yellow-orange color, with a little head. Aroma is dry grain and crisp hops, some sweetness (a little banana-like) and yeast also. Flavor is the same, both sweet and dry at the same time. Pretty good overall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy straw with a small, quickly fading head.
Nose shows banana in large quantities along with doughy wheat and bubblegum. Impressive!
Flavours are not as mind-blowing, mainly just doughy wheat with a faint metallic finish.
Body seems watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very hazy bright hay yellow with a fizzy white head that doesn’t last long. Banana is big in the aroma, with some wheatiness, and light vanilla as well. Tastes quite fruity, banana, very slight citrus, and finishes a bit sweet/sour. Lighter to medium body with fizzy carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.25 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-op. The aroma on this has the requisite banana and clove aromas, but something seems just off. It’s a little sweet. Perhaps some smelly feet in the nose? Moderately hazy golden body with just a slight brownish hue. Small, quickly dissipating white head. Starts a bit metallic, before the yeasty wheaty flavors come through with hints of banana and clove. Some underlying cereal is also there. Finishes with a bit of an astringent acidity. Some metallic character late. Not too bad.
