darkseduction (669) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Dunkel, stark, heftig. Ein Brett, alkoholisch indiziertes Hefe- und Weizenaroma. A bisserl zu heftig für meinen Geschmack, kommt nicht an die Harmonie vom Gruppenführer Aventinus heran. Trotzdem gefällig.

jinroh (839) - ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2014
Pours hazy, dark brown. Really hazy, leaving even somewhat dirty impression. There is a bit of foam too. Cloves and banana in the aroma - and also in the taste. Sweet and warming. Light sourness from wheat. Nice and enjoyable.

Tap at World Craft Beer Tasting 2014. A tub full of banana puree, spiced up with grass. Muddy brown/amber color, creamy off-white head, and good lace. Bubblegummy sweet initial, medium-strength fruitiness in mid, some mild tartness and spice in mid, and a solid malty finish. Medium body. Refreshing aroma. Good stuff.
