Recommended by my server at the Spinnerstown Hotel. excellent choice. Sweet and malty at the start with banana flavor followed by a warm spicy bite to end clean.

Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy, a man who never disappoints. Served in a tulip.
Pours a bright peach color with a really nice two-finger white head. Good lacing as it goes down and a thin collar stays along for the ride. The nose brings some light bready malt as well as a light floral aroma and a bit of earth and spice. Flavor has mild malt sweetness plus a bit of a hop presence. Yeast kicks in with some mild spice toward the finish. Really light, yet creamy, mouthfeel that is the highlight of the beer for me. Nicely done. Thanks again, Andy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazy golden with a small head... loads of banana, spices, some bubblegum in the aroma... flavor profile follows the aroma with more notes of clove, medium to medium full bodied, very lively... I didnt realize this was a wheat beer and thought i had been poured the wrong beer at first... reminded more of a hefe than a wit...

Pours cloudy honey colour with a litle white head. A floral aroma mixed with that almost pungent Belgium aroma. Hop citrus bitterness hits u at first and then you get the Belgium flavour. It’s a little different, but done well, i kinda like this one.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy deep golden pour sticky lacing fluffy white head ... aroma of lemon and orange light banana and sugary smells like a cross of lemon pledge and the stuff they spray shoes with at the bowling alley .... tastes very sweet citrusy lemon and orange with a light wheat coriander in there.... not really a brew i’d go for again but at least the abv is hidden well

Pours a hazy dark orange light amber color with minimal foamy whitish head. Aroma is very very sweet, caramel, banana, and raisin bread. Flavor is surprisingly dry, bit boozy undertone, some sweet.banana peach notes. Dry mild floral hop finish, Overall, very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: murky orange with shimmers of golden straw drifting on through. Fluffy orange pith head clings to sides of the glass, crawling up to form a solid thick collar. Swirls nicely.
Nose: orange and upside down pineapple cake. Orange skin and pith contribute some dryness along with more esters. Cinnamon, cumin, and grains of paradise. Banana peels, preferably green. Wafers, leather, sawdust and old bales of straw. An interesting mix of tropical fruit skins, freshly peeled.
Palate: soft along the sides and in the front. Flavor highly concentrated in the middle. Spices abound from start to finish; cumin and nutmeg especially with hints of grains of paradise. Coconut husk, leather, dusty baled hay, and pineapple skin minus the flesh. Very fast dry finish; thirst inducing. Raw honeycomb for an earthy down home sweetness. Green banana peel. A touch thin but not detrimentally so; flavors more than make up for it. Orange skin peel and pith.
Final Thoughts: besides the funky name, she was a wee bit of a funky brew. I initially started out tasting her rather unimpressed, but by the time I was done she had surely grown on me. An intriguing take on the ambiguous Belgian ale style.

Cloudy amber color with no head. Aroma of candi sugar, spice, bubble gum, and alcohol. Taste has coriander, yeast, bubble gum, and some hops. Didn’t expect this. Good beer.
