Deep brown pour. The nose is a little bit toasty. A touch of pepper and some toasted malt. Light licorice and some cooked banana. Decent beer.

Not a huge beer. Light taste and palate. Wheaty with some roast in the aroma. Watery texture. Slightly sweet and sour finish but watery overall. Ok for style. Tap at Rhino summerfest.

500 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a cola-ish lightly orangey brown with light tan cap. Aroma is quite roasty, with hints even of smoke, but balanced nicely with ripe banana and wheat. Taste is also a nice balance of roasty and sweet with pretty big banana, chewy, roasty grains and a light chocolatey note. Quite flavourful for a 4% beer. Body is average. Nice one.

on tap at the Tap Room. I could not drink too much of this as thin and bitter finish, though some chocolate was initially good.
