3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden-straw colored body,medium sized white head and soapy lacing. Soft, lightly sweet wheat, banana, a touch of citrus and mellow clove. Classic profile that is mellow but flavorful. Medium bodied, moderate to gentle carbonation, fills out and slows down after a few slips... reflecting the slightly too sweet body. Solid overall.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Maple Shade location. Peachy aroma more than banana. Yes banana in taste as promised, but also some sweet infused taste including pineapple that tasted too good to be intrinsic. On the sweet side, as a purist, it’s clean notes, but somewhat too magical fruit for the style.
Earlier Rating: 8/29/2006 Total Score: 2.2
Banana aroma, lots of lace. Sour. Weak for style because of mouthfeel, acidity, lack of full flavour. Taste like it sat around, but it could not could it. More German line for Pennsylvania expansion.

Flight @ Iron Hill Newark on 6/24/2012. Pours a dark piss and retains a small head. Light, milky palate and a light, wheaty nose. Overripe banana on the tongue. Kind of muted/bland. Meh.

Tap at iron hill Newark - I forgot to review this last night, but I was pretty disappointed. It didn’t seem true to style and was a bit floral to me. Pass.
