Fort Collins Brew Fest 2003: As Cheri says, bananas. Good to drink on a hot summer day, very refreshing.

There is nothing special about this beer except that it smells like bananas and tastes like bananas (and wheat). It's Okay -- not great -- but, I'm sure it would sell well on the Planet of the Apes.

an alright beer, i had 3 of these on tap at my buddies resturaunt, and they were good and went very good with the new orleans style food he was serving. i got this because the abita turbodog tap was dry. a very good offering though, mine came with a lemon but i dont even put lemon in ice tea so needless to say i didnt use it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden blond with a cloudy mix in the body. Slight spice and yeast with a hint of citrus. No clove or coriander in the body nor banana. Seemed a little watery or thin but this was still refreshing during an 80+ degree evening. Finished smooth and semi-sweet. Worth trying.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber, small head, suprisingly small amount of sediment. Aroma of yeast and lemon. Taste is rather plain, yeast and lemon are the dominant flavors. Smooth with a slightly dry finish. Boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly cloudy golden appearance with minimal lacy white head. Smells of grains and a hint of fruitiness. Taste isnt all that special. You can taste the wheat, as well as banana mingled in with grapefruit. Refreshing in summer, but that is about it.

Cloudy light amber,white head.Light citrus nose.Pleasant light bodied,mild refreshing citrus flavor.
Not a lot of cloying yeast, more like American wheat instead of the German style,I prefer this.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slighty hazy yellow with a short head, no lacing, thin-bodied. Hints of lemon, banana, pepper, chestnut, and if my nose isn't deceiving me...bourbon, nicely complex. The taste however did stand up to the aroma, some spices and fruit but no punch, flat. Spices also linger on the palate. I also agree with marinaro500 that the label "art" is just awful, some of their labels are cool, just not this one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Citrus aroma and flavor, but seemed altogether too sweet, lacking the wheat punch of most hefeweizens. Refreshing as a beverage, but not so great for the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THis one starts out with a medium gold color and a large, but quickly fading, white head. I really like the aroma of this one. Nice mix of wheat, yeast, and some strong citrus coming through...they just seem to mix in a very pleasing way. This one ALMOST smells like a Belgian...or am I just a little off my rocker? The flavor, for the most part, matches the nose. This one really isn't rated too well, and lacks some depth and bite, but I'm surprised how little the other raters seem to care for this beer. Surprisingly good from a brewery with which I usually find myself disappointed! And I've been putting this one off because of its lower ratings...A GOOD REASON NOT TO ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT OTHERS SAY!
