jdjuice (313) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 9, 2007
Pours hazy greenish gold with a ridiculously large white head. Aroma is light, sweet and fruity with strong banana esters. Flavor is strong banana, slight spiciness and lots of malt. Alcohol makes itself felt at the tail end. Pretty good, but not too complex.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2006
0.33l bottle at home. Hazy yellow with huge white foamy head. Yeast,fruit and spice aroma. Malty sweet, yeast and some spice in taste. Warms you up nicely when you finish the bottle. Not bad at all.

asedzie (586) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 29, 2006
UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 Golden, slightly hazy, thick white foam. Smell is sweet, yeast, wheaty, a little bit of fruit. Flavor is orange peel, a little sweet, a little bitter. Light alcohol taste throughout, but not as heavy as expected for this ABV. Palate is quite light all around really, maybe even a little watery. Refreshing, with just enough sting from the alcohol and just enough layers of flavor to keep it interesting.

rederic (2896) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2006
Hazy yellow gold hue, with a multitude of flaking lees swirling around, with a frothy white head, sweet yeasty fruity nose, of ripe apples and pears, with a sweet pale malt note, and a spicy aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp yeasty fruity character of ripe apples, a faint peachy note, hint of spiciness, flowery hops, with a warmth alcoholic mouthfeeling, leading towards a dry hops bittering and alcoholic finish.
