Bottle into a goblet. Aroma is that of sweet rolled fruit and light malt. Pour is a dark amber with a very fine head. Taste is a rounded malt fruitful smoothed taste. Finish is fruitful smoothness. A good ale, I would buy this one again.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light brown pour, very thin head. Nice aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg along with spicy yeast. Flavor is very "soft" with cinnamon, banana, and more spice. However.... the finish is an unexpected combo of sour apple, then leaves a sugary coating on the tongue at the very end. Moutfeel is extremely watery, which combined with the sugary finish makes this disappointing. Started strong, but ends poorly.

Part of the Autumn sampler pack. Yellowish brown, cloudy body with a medium white head. Aroma is spicy with a hint of clove. Taste is fruity, namely banana and orange peel with a touch of ginger. The finish is clean although the banana sticks around a little.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good pour, solid white head, well carbonated. Taste of clove, orange and banana. Also tastes like a cheap imitation of weihenstephaner. If u want a good bavarian wheat beer get it from worlds oldest brewery. Similar in cost, yet weihenstephaner is superior in taste. Disapointed with many of Sam Adams commercial offerings, this wasn’t an exception.

Hazy pour with a nose of spices, cloves and nutmeg. Taste is same with some banana. Palate is slightly creamy and bitter. Not the best of the style but drinkable enough.
