tmoreau (2319) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2009
09 winter tapping at Bolingbrook, Il. Weizen glass served. Murky, brownish hue with a good, off white head, and fair lacing. Dark fruit, maybe a touch of ripe banana, and subtle bread and spice tones made up the aroma. These carried over into the flavor with a little caramel, some sweetness, and just a touch of hop dryness. I enjoyed letting it warm to let the pleasant flavor notes and alcohol intensify.

rayOfBeer (662) - El Cerrito, California, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Poured from tap at brewery a hazy amber with large off-white head. Aroma is sweet with banana, bubblegum and clove. Flavor is sticky sweet with bubblegum, caramel, banana, and a touch of clove spice. Overall nice flavor and aroma but the low carbonation and big sweetness made this one harder to drink in hot weather than it should have been.
