Zlotta (1325) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2016
0.5 l bottle from ’Biermuda’, best before May 2016. Cloudy, dark brown with a huge, creamy, stable, tan head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and minimally fruity aroma of banana, clove, nuts and some dark ripe fruits. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and slightly fruity taste of banana, lots of clove, nuts, bread, chocolate and some dark ripe fruits, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, yeasty-spicy and lightly warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Moreish and satisfying, great stuff!

Draught at Pigalle. Rich banana cake with a caramel edge, plum, clove, peppery notes, gentle sweet finish. Solid stuff, full-bodied and smooth, probably one of their best I guess.

darkseduction (691) - 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 (1031) - 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.

maekchu (3249) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 28, 2014
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.

Bottle. Deep brown in colour, with a decent, off-white head. Rich, boozy, brown sugar and dark fruit aroma. Deep, almost vinous, flavours with berry fruits, toasted malts and a warming finish. Unusual and very enjoyable.
