3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark hazy orange pour, served with a slice of orange floating on top so you know what your palate is about to get. Smells like citrus, banana, wheat, and clove. Tastes pretty much like that, but with some hops that I couldnt get from the smell, and more of a wheat finish. Medium bodied and quite refreshing. It’s like a beer-snob’s version of Blue Moon.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy/hazy yellow with a very nice, long-lasting and lacing head. Aroma is coriander, clove and wheat, bubblegum. Taste is sweet bubblegum, strong clove and astringent coriander. Burns the tongue. Ending leaves a smooth, foamy and silky coating on the mouth. Sampled on draught at the brewery in Arlington, VA.

spot on kid!... desert ridge location. hazy pale yellowish shade of brown with a light white ring. grain and banana hit the nose first followed by light spice/clove, floral, earth/dirt and a light citric tartness. definite bruised banana flavor with some wheat and vanilla. bitter dry finish. medium body leaves a light lactic-like film in my throat. it feels vibrant and sparkly from the carbonation. it tastes good up front but seriously lacks on the finish and back of the tongue...

Give me a break with the location madness, this beer is in Ballston Vigineeaaa. Do you think I don’t know how I spelled that? Pours darker cloudy bananana yellow with a 1.5 inch white head. Aroma of banana and a little onion. Cigarette smokers just kill, I mean really fuck up, your beer rating experience. God knows what the hell it smells like? Fucking parlaiment nicotine and formaldahide? When is the rest of the nation going to grow up to Austin’’s no smoking rules? Surely Virginia will be second to last next to South Carolina. Maybe there’ a luttle sweet banana and mild clove in there. Tastse like some wood, oak, and light banana yeast with a little vanilla. Good lacing. Dry, woody finish.

Tap @ Arlington brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with a smaller white head than you’d imagine. Banana, clove, and citrus on the nose. Taste is heavy banana up front dissolving into a clove and somewhat vanilla aftertaste. Not a bad heffy at all.
