Pours a clear copper color with no head. Nice aroma of bananas, caramel and candy. Good flavor of bananas, caramel and candy, the sweetness lingers for a while. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy reddish brown - thick, frothy lace - doughy, yeasty nose, with notes of cloves and overripe pears and apples - mildly acidic kick starts the flavor, followed by some wheaty tang, but overall, the flavor is quite sweet for most of the experience - especially in the finish, where it becomes a bit much - a lot of overripe apple in the flavor - mid to low levels of yeast phenols in the form of clove and bubblegum - finishes with a little brown sugar - quite good, but the sweetness is a little too much.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
MMMmmm, nice brew. Poured aggresively and got an ok tan head that quickly subsided with no lace. Color is a hazy copper. Aroma is a Bavarian hefeweizen with loads of malt. Flavor is like aroma with lots of caramel and some toffee. Great body and carbonation. Finish is a bit sweet but decent.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle. Nice sweet aroma, with neutral fruity character, brown sugar, and Twizzlers. Light hops, but very mild. Coppery amber clear with thin off-white creamy head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts a bit sweet, with light caramel, some Twizzlers, neutral fruit, and carbonic acidity. Light bitterness in the finish, nutty. A bit of extra sugar tang. Light alcohol notes. Clean finish and after, though a touch of solvent.

9th October 2008. Hazy amber beer - full of banana and cloves. Dry and crisp. Not a bad take on the style but where is that US innovation?

This was tasty. Hazy orange amber color. Wheat, banana, and solid bock malts in the aroma. A very smooth taste with no bite from the wheat.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Three Cellars in Franklin, WI. Pours a semi-hazy copper amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that really sticks around. Aroma of golden grain malt, dark pitted fruits, banana esters, a hint of caramel and some clove. Taste is full bodied, smooth with flavors of roasted golden grain malt, banana, clove with a hint of cotton candy and candi sugar. Finish is slightly oily, semi-dry with a nice alcohol warmth. Very solid and very well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep amber color out of the bottle with a modest off white head. Light banana clove nose with honey syrup, candy floss and burnt caramel in the nose. Puffed wheat taste (like the Super Sugar Crisp cereal of my youth), caramel corn, banana, clove spice, and some fruity flavors as it warms. This is a really nice beer that I have enjoyed while its been abailable. It will be missed.
