Draft at oe... Dark mahogany, a bit dirty, creamy tan head, good retention... The aroma is a bit plain, clove, caramelized sugar, bit of spice on the finish... The taste as first is really nice at first, fresh banana, dark fruit and caramel, but as you drink it becomes cloying and hot, way too much alcohol gives me a burn... above average but I wouldn’t seek out ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. 12 oz bottle shared during a sharing of the Advent Calendar (conclusion!) on March 30. The pour is a muddy tan with a light cream colored head and no lacing. The aroma is pretty malty and a little spicy, which is decent. There is a pretty strong Belgian character to it, which is just meh. The flavor is very reminiscent of the aroma. I’m surprised there isn’t more of a spiciness on the flavor of this one. There is a defined Belgian yeastiness and a solid malt character that is surprisingly nice. The mouth feel is a bit thin, but the light carbonation helps a little, ad there is a spicy, dry aftertaste

Draft to taster. Looks decent for the style; a murky golden brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes yeasty and malty with some dark fruit and spices with a bit of tartness. Average on the palate. Okay.

On tap. Pours a dark brown that transforms to a ruby/garnet when held to the light. A thinner khaki to mocha head settles to a ring and leaves a few heaps of clingy, intricate lace. Big clove immediately on the nose, followed by banana, cherry, a touch of vinegar, raisin-bread, and other Belgian yeast sweet-spice character. Very malty sweet with a fair bitterness that helps balance. Heavy side of medium bodied, a fair active carb, with a long spicy finish. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It seems well hopped, which helps considering how sweet the style is prone to being. Paired nicely with a hearty meal.

On tap at Greenbush brewpub. Hazy caramel with a creamy tan head and some lacing. Aroma of banana, caramel, grains, light spice and a touch of yeast. Taste of banana and alcohol with toffee, light clove, malt and some sugars. Sweet throughout and decent.

Had on tap at Bad Apple in Chicago, served in a 16oz. Hofbräuhaus stein. A: Pours a very hazy dark brown with a pillowy one inch, bone colored head that has some great retention. The head sticks around for quite sometime and leaves some sticky and plentiful lace down the whole glass. S: The peppery and clove like yeast hits you in the nose right away. There is some banana bread like sweetness and some oaty malts as well. T: The taste is much like nose. Nice notes of spicy fruity esters and banana like yeast. It is a touch more peppery than the nose. The malty sweetness on the finish brings it together. M: Full bodied in flavor, but not to heavy at all. The drinkability was very nice and the stein went down easy. Carbontion was spot on. O: A very solid brew from an up and coming brewery. I’m excited to try more from Greenbush in the new future as more kegs come to Chicago. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-16-2012

Bottle with a big thanks to bbb. Notes of smooth toasted dough and caramel, mellow raison and light plum tang. Soft double wheat malt backing. Creamy. Touch of grassy plum bitterness. Good.

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Tap and in bottles numerous times: Hazy deep amber with a frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma acts the part... banana creme pie, clove, wheat bread, bubblegum, hint of milk chocolate and caramel with a light handed herbal and spicy hop ester. The taste has a nice balance between weizen and bock where neither dominates the other. Spicy, fruity, roasty, bready, and slightly roasty... is a touch tannic however which leads to my biggest critic of this beer. The mouth feel is clean, too clean and dry for the genre IMO. I do like this a lot, just wished it had more depth of mouth feel.
