On tap at the Rake. Light semi crisp palate. Curious bubblegum and banana sweetness. Creamy malt. A little orange in the undertone. If this was a blind tasting I would have marked this as a wheat beer on flavour! Softish dry finish.

Velkyal (275) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2010
poured clear and golden - although I believe it is not filtered, the head was white and quite loose. The nose was classic banana and clove notes dominating. In the mouth, again cloves, spice, muted bananas but with a dry crisp finish, which I found very refreshing. I felt though that the flavours were a bit muted and could benefit from being ramped up a bit.

On tap at the brewery in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire. Golden coloured pour with a reasonable white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Tastes sweet, fruity, yeasty, caramel. Almost Belgian in character, smooth easy drinking. Pleasant.

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 4, 2010
On tap at the White Horse 40 from 40 Festival, 1st May 2010. Golden amber. Incredibly fruity with lots of banana and vanilla. Ok weight and palate but too one-dimensional.
