3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Mission Valley location. Aroma was of huge banana/bubblegum; hints of alcohol and spice. Color of amber/orange; big off white head. Flavor was not as good as the aroma. Flavor was good, but too mellow of a banana flavor. Tasted more alcoholic than its listed. Not too great for a style I like; but still tasty.
