This wonderful beer that smells of bananas and cloves. It is unfiltered and golden yellow in color with a particular taste that resembles a light begian golden ale. Another winner for Lagunitas.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 30, 2013
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white bubbly head. Aroma of wheat, bubblegum, banana, tropical fruit, and a slight sour earthy aroma. Taste has a big wheat flavor with some citrus tang. A touch of tropical fruit and hop and maybe some brown sugar. Finish has a touch of sour, touch of bitter with a little alcohol. Light to medium, silky body and moderate carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Sean! It was good but seemed to be a one note beer. Smells and tastes like banana bread soaked in beer.

Bottle pour..light amber/orangish color..expecting a bit darker..tiny bubbles rising..intriguing nose of banana..clove..and as some have stated cider..sweet malt and indeed some type of marmalade/jam..this is a new style for me..so not sure what to expect..but definitely has good Belgian qualities and flavor profile..mouthfeel is enjoyable and initially hides the abv..banana bread spiked clove takes center stage on sip and does have that familiar Belgian goodness...quite easy drinking.this is a good hybrid taste offering and a bit off the beaten path for lagunitas..worth seeking out..

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Type: 22-oz. bomber Glass: Pilsner glass From: Clem’s Bottle House and Deli Price: $5.99 Misc.: N/A Poured an amber, orange, hazy color with 1-2 fingers of khaki white head that dissipated very quickly. Minimal lacing and poor retention. Lots of different smells that came together rather nicely. Got sour fruit, melon, peach, mango and other tropical flavors, banana, cloves, caramel, floral hops and citrus hops (orange, tangerine and lemon). Some unknown spices late. Tasted very smooth. Got cloves, peach, mango, melon, lemon and tangerine, just a tropical feel. Could taste the alcohol. Surprisingly bitter finish. Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Astringent, bitter finish. Really enjoyed this beer. A sweet doppel weizen with a nice alcohol bite.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! The beer appears very hazy and light orange in color. The head is dense and pure white, measuring an inch thick. The aroma brings alcohol, fruit, yeast, spice. Banana and clove in the flavor. Pretty sweet. Malt and spices are secondary to sweet bananas. Medium bodied with a creamy feel. The mouthfeel is my favorite aspect of the beer. Overall, a decent example of the style, but I much prefer Aventinus. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-11-2011

Good beer for it’s type. It’s got a slight after taste that may be from the time in my beer fridge. I’m not holding against the bottle and I’ll be back to try it again.

Bomber bottle poured into proper hefe class. Deep orange amber, stiff white head. Proper appearance, proper banana yeast spice citrus aroma and taste. Really good Doppel, wish they’d make it a regular.
