DalzAle (1976) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Bottle. Nice hazy dark orange pour, a little carbonation and a very banana forward aroma. Flavor is slick bready banana, sweet and very alcoholic on the aftertaste. I can see this beer being a lot better if they dialed back the alcohol content.

StefanSD (2118) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 20, 2011
650 ml bottle from bevmo. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. The aroma is rich with fruity wheat, bread and cloves. The taste is more of the same, lots of banana, sourdough bread and mild spices(cloves). The palate is full and creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with a bit of tang. Overall: Great beer.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2011
22 oz bottle @ redlight redlight. banana and clove on the nose. Pours an orange color with a dissipating white head. Banana upfront with clove spiciness following, first sip i get traditional Bavarian flavors, second sip the hops kick in, grassy citrusy hops. Not bad.

skoisirius (1632) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2011
$4 in South Oregon. Pours a lovely cloudy light oranged yellow color. Nose is quite malty with hints of clove ice cream. Flavor runs very Bavarian Hefe style with mild hints at banana and little bits of sweet cream somehow. Most of the flavor is dominated by the clove aspect, which hits in the body and finishes out the beer, lingering heavily - more than your average Bavarian Hefe, but it’s kind of nice! All in all, it’s good...could be a bit thicker in the body, but I like it! Nice to see Lagunitas continually doing different things - AND keeping their price at $4 a 22oz!

HonkeyBra (3344) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2011
22 oz. bomber. Opaque, reddish orange pour with a medium offwhite head that dissipates. Aroma of yeasty belgian esters, mild bread dough. Yeasty belgian esters of clove, banana, bubblegum. Flavor is mildly sweet, with a twang of belgian yeast, clove and bubblegum blend in with doughy malts. A strong sweetness that’s similar to donuts or pastry. Medium bodied, average carbonation. I feel like this beer is trying to get to something that it never really reaches. It just of fizzles out in the runway.

jlieber17 (201) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 15, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with small bubbly head. Nose is predominately sweet: banana, candied sugar, along with clove, pepper, and a hint of booze. Flavor is more yeasty, spicy with banana and syrupy maltiness. Thick, slightly sticky, not overwhelmingly carbonated, definitely bigger than I expected.

KyotoLefty (6322) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2011
Draught at Lagunitas Brewery. Orange-amber with lace. Lemon and sweet orange aroma, with clove and wheat. Very sweet flavor, with orange, lightest banana, clove. Strong alcohol, with a silky, oily body. Packs a big punch but is a bit unrefined.

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 15, 2011
22oz bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma is heavy on clove and banana yeast esters. Plenty of bubble gum is present, too. Light underlying tartness. Mostly hazy honey colored body with a nice white head that is fairly strong. Starts sweet with bubble gum notes, before a little clove estery flavors take over in the middle. This takes on some dusty and husky wheat character later on. Light spicy character to finish with more underlying sweetness persisting.

boFNjackson (4130) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle... Poured hazy yellowish/orange with a white head. Nose had loads of yeast phenols with clove, bananas, and other spices. Thick body, loads of carbonation with notes of vanilla, wheat malts, sugary-bready malts, banana bread, candied sweetness, light fruits, yeast tanginess, cloves, and a phenolic finish. A little alcohol crept int but overall pretty smooth for the ABV.
