4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 Bottle. Poured a great looking pale, golden colour, with a large foamy, white head. Aroma is malt, hops and bananas, some spice. Crisp and very refreshing. Taste is malty, fruity with a nice dry finish and slightly bitter aftertaste. Pretty carbonated, but smooth with a great mouthfeel. Excellent.

In the 500 ml bottle. Pours pale gold with a mighty big white poofy fluffy head. Fantastic lacing in the empty glass. Aroma was very skunky, and I’m not sure why since it was in a brown bottle. Fantastic flavor of wheat, buttery esters and amazingly enough, APPLES! This is crisp and tart, but not too crisp or tart. If i were a rich bastard, this would be my lawnmower beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: As you would imagine, this brew is crystal clear, very bubbly with a small head. Spicy sweet nose with a malty and bitter sweet taste. Not bad at all but I prefer the original one with yeast.

Pours a giant white head just like it should. Great bannana-like aroma. This bottle poured a perfectly clear light golden color. Sparkely. Seems like it could keep bubbling forever. Fruity melllow bananna, slighly bitter then sweet lingering taste like honey. Thin, highly carbonated mouthfeel. The head is now 1/8th thick and holding. Refreshing, needs a ham sandwich to go with it on a hot summer’s day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, light golden color, almost no head. Slight clove and banana aroma. Very full mouthfeel. Has a slight nutty taste to it, some underlying honey sweetness and some bisuity qualities in the back end. Not altogether bad, just did not set my world on fire.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow, let me tell you this was pretty cool. Had it at this german restauraunt in Gibson City. Very cool atmosphere and stuff. So if you are cruising down I-75 and you pass PAXTON Illinois exit, it is well worth the 15 min detour. Golden in colour with a thin white head. Nose is citrusy with a faint undertone of hops. Thin bodied. but pretty darn refreshing.
