RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a thick three finger high head that settles slowly to a solid cap. The resulting lace is a bit tattered, but sticks nicely, leaving a broken webbing behind. Smell; lots of strong bananas and cloves with a big wheat backing. After this warms up a bit, a little lemon peel and some sweet malts come through, as well as a touch of bubblegum. A bit more weizen than weizenbock in the aroma, but still very good. Taste; the bananas, cloves and wheat are just as prevalent in the flavor as they were in the aroma. Bubblegum and a zesty lemon fill out the middle, and then a sweet maltiness, and a bit of a tartness, come through in the finish. Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a very creamy smooth carbonation, and just an incredible drinkability. This one goes down so smoothy. If this was available anywhere near me I would keep some on hand all of the time. I picked mine up in Grand Rapids, MI.

shoulderbroken (2956) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2015
Keyaki. Nice. Banana, wheat, creamy, quite thick. Hides the booze. Just a hint of something fruity cherry which usually means booze for me.

500ml bottle. Aroma, banana as it should, light yeast. Appearance is dark, cloudy orange with a very long lasting huge foam. Impressive. Taste is sweet and bitter in the best possible balanced way. Amazing. Stays forever with a subtile dryness. Best of the best.

darkseduction (665) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Bernsteinfarben, recht trüb. Stücke von Bruchhefe fallen ins Glas. Runder, gelungener Eindruck, im Abgang für meinen Geschmack etwas süß. Wärmendes Mundgefühl bleibt.
