Bland across the board - nothing much to look at and fairly one-dimensional taste. Not offensive though and reasonably easy to drink.

On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a cloudy yellow with thick white frothy head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong honey, citrus, and banana. Thin mouthfeel with sweet hop and strong honey flavor. Easy to drink, yes.

Sheesh, bad. Smells bad, tastes bad. Trashy. Golden hazy, small white ring head. That’s about all I can say. No wonder they retired it and unfortunately I stumbled across this tap in the pub.

Soft cloudy blonde pour with two fingers of dense white head. Nose is yeasty with some spicy notes. A touch of bread dough and citrus/alcohol. Crops and spicy with some bready/yeasty notes. Alcohol begins to show. Medium body and dry finish

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2006
Hazy blonde with a thin white head. Intense banans and cloves in aroma, pleasing the nostril. Intense smashed banans in mouth, with notes of ginger. Medium bodied. At EBF 2006.

Plenty of wheat character in the nose along with strong orange and coriander spiciness, some tannins, mild banana esters and a whiff of alcohol. Opaque, cloudy, milky white-blonde body is topped by a rocky white head that recedes ever so slowly and drapes the glass with lacing. Grainy, thick wheat base with assertive spiciness and a tart citrus character. Crisp carbonation to the dry light body. Sampled on tap at the Extreme Beer Fest 2006.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2006
Hugely lacing white head is the star atop the beaufitul light golden, opaque body. Moderate spiciness along with well extracted wheat make for a pleasant nose. I suspect the use of less conventional spices, possibly cumin, which reveal an herbal freshness that you don’t find in most whites. The malt underneath is fresh, gently grainy and makes for a good foundation. Above, the yeast does a fair attenuation job, bringing out a few medicinal phenols and the tartness remains derived mostly from the wheat. Well carbonated, medium bodied feels fairly round while alcohol is not a factor. A success.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Sample at EBF 2006. Thick, yeasty translucent golden body with a lasting touch of head...banana, bitter orange, coriander and white pepper in the fairly typical but fragrant nose, kissed by a touch of brandy....the flavor is cointreau and vanilla and banana, quite luscious though almost syrupy for a bit....dries out nicely with hints of fennel and white pepper towards the finish. Don’t know if this is a one-off but I hope not.
