COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a brass opalescent blond coloured beer. It is topped by a thick compact foam which sticks to the glass and is sustained by a strong effervescence. Its fragrance is one of cloves with a hint of bananas, all of which is wrapped in an aroma of warm baked bread. Its a light tasting and fruity beer with only a mild flavour of hops. It is a very smooth tasting beer with a touch of acidity.

Bu sur place en fut (20 oz). Jaune blanchi très brumeuse, bon collet que disparait peu et laisse une belle dentaile. Arome doux de blé frait, une peu d,agrume et de banane et d’épice. Bon petit goût de banane crémeuse, un peu d’herbe et d’épice. Très bon!

Draft at the brewpub. Cloudy golden ale, funky yeasty aroma. Thick rich taste of overripe banana. Easy on the clove and spice notes. Awesome.

Sampled on BQ2010. Pour a hazy gold body with nice white head. Aroma of wheat and coriander. Flavor consists of spice, clove, banana and wheat. Very well balanced.

Refreshing, of course well-brewed DDC beer. The lemony, slightly spiced, slighty bitter taste is all well-balanced. A very good beer

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2003
UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (Draught) Medium, white head and a cloudy yellow body. Nose of bananas. Better than Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weisse. Flavours are more complex and plentiful. Great beer for a cool autumn day...

Strong banana and mild clove with notes of vanilla in the aroma. Cloudy, dark- straw coloured with thick white head that lasts nicely. Banana flavour dominates the wheaty base with pleasant, tart, citrus finish. Creamy texture and lively carbonation. Sampled 2003.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Pint at DDC in the company of tiggmtl. Bright, opaque luminous gold with a large but fast-decaying head...super-banana-rum-cream concoction of a nose, perhaps too sweet with little spice but splendid anyway. Bananas & cream on the tongue, just a bit of citric tartness late. Fairly simple and quite sweet, but very pleasant and eminently drinkable. Mmmm.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2007
[Pint @ the brewpub] Nice wheat aroma-- kind of sweet with some spices in there. Pours a very hazy golden color that almost seems to glow in the light. A very full-flavored hefeweizen, sweet wheat, banana and clove backed up by a strong yeast presence. Not quite as "refreshing" as the usual German Hefe, this is a bit richer in body and flavor. Extremely drinkable. This is yet another outstanding beer from DDC.

Robe blonde voilée surmontée d’une mousse blanche mince. Arômes de bananes et de citron. Saveurs de bananes, de citron, de levures et de fruits.
