3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pintvat Ferguson. A dark brown opaque pour. This is one of those beers that change flavors during each sip. It begins fruity. Then wheat is noted. And then rich malts are tasted. That order changes. Toffee is nice. Spices, too. Even later some hop notes pop up adding interesting complexity. This is quite nice. I like it.

Pours dark reddish brown with a huge beige head. The aroma has spice, rich wheat, brown sugar and candied bananas. It has a medium smooth body with gentle semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with spice, banana, spice, earth and anise. The finish has bubblegum, spice and minerals. Good dunkelweizen.

It poured a brownish amber color with a small head. The aroma was sweet and grainy, with a little bit of fruit in the background. The flavor was nice, of fruit (banana and citrus), yeast and a bit of a tart character that is tough to describe.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap- Served a deep brown color with a good tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma was a nice blend of toffee and malt sweetness with a hint of banana. Starts with a mild sweetness and fruity flavor of banana. Has a slight bitterness and a very smooth finish. Fairly medium body, very smooth. Well Balanced. This is a smooth, easy drinker. Very good for the style. Not heavy, goes good with a meal or by itself. Well worth a try

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the Brewpub. Tasted 5/1/11. Unfiltered and pours hazy with a dark brown hue. Bubbled layer of tan head. Aromas of toast and toffee. Dark malts and a citrus note. Medium bodied and quite spot on profile wise. A medium roasted malt/wheat bill. A nice mix of both sweet and bitter malts. An almost rye like bitterness. There’s a grassy and sweet, citrus candy flavor. Probably from both the yeast and the mild hops. A decent tart astringency plays well with the sweet malts and the tangy finish. There’s a subtle clove note mixed with the dark fruit flavors and cola nuance adding to the palate. Faint banana esters and a burnt sugar flavor. The finish is thick and cloying with a trace amount of tingling effervescence that lingers on the tongue. Nice and fresh and a really nice interpretation of hte style!
