Found this in a blue bottle at Roger Wilco in Sicklerville NJ and no one knew anything about it. The said it came with the store which opened in 2008. The bottle had a 2008 date also so I was a little worried but no fears, this was quite tasty. Poured a cloudy light orange with a small head. The aroma was hweat and malt, along with some cloves, bananas. The flavor was similar with a nice peppery feel to it. Very dry finish. Tasty stuff.

300ml cobalt blue bottle. The aroma is very much to style with bananas, bubble gum, wheat, cloves, and a touch of grass. The appearance is cloudy yellow with floating particles. The taste is like the aroma exactly. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice attempt at a Hefeweizen.
