brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Orange pour with a white head. Strange skunked aroma, a bit of banana, and some fruity esters. Sweet bready malt, a bit of caramel, and some toffee. Mild alcohol flavor, a lot of banana, and some pear and apple esters. Light spice, tons of sweet malt, and a fair amount of sugar.

erickok (5449) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2016
Fruity esters, biscuit, banana, classically styled which is okay but it tastes old fashioned too. Sweet alcohol heat without any reason. Not clear enough either. No, no good. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

On tap at the Hoegaarden cafe, 23/07/2015. Hazed bright orange / amber coloured pour with a lasting frothy off white head. Aroma is cakey, sweet, ripe banana, caramel banana, cake and toffee apple. Flavour is composed of sweet toffee, cakey, burnt brown sugars, live clove spices. Harsh slightly woody finish. Palate is harsh very high carbonation, attacks the tongue.
