3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy medium copper body with a light khaki and yellowish head. The head is dense and long lasting. Light banana esters in the nose along with some pleasant floral hints. There is also some peanut butter in the overall sweet smelling beer. The taste is initially bread crusts with some banana peels coming through later in the drink. There is also some woody tobacco that throws off the finish. The banana peels add up as you drink and it gets cloying. Too bad the taste doesn’t quite measure up the pleasing smell.

draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. Pours a somewhat burnt orange color. Like when an orange is starting to go bad color. Cloves dominate aroma with fruity yeastiness. Decent dunkle flavor but maybe needs a tad more in both aroma & flavor

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I liked this more than I expected. Reddish brown, decent sized loose, spongey head. I got some rye, some banana, some toasty aromas, and the flaor was more rye. Nice and clean, no "off" flavors to speak of. Tasty. Sampled at lithy’s Septemberfest.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightyl hazy light brown body with a small fizzy off white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty decent, slightly husky and earthy with some light esters of banana. The flavor is a bit thin though, not enough yeastiness or body. The finish is laced with banana and clove. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. This one isn’t the best.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color dunkel with a large foamy had with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of banana cake ester are pretty strong with light sweet notes and some what malt. Taste is a good mix between banana bread ester with light cloves and some light wheat malt notes also discernable. Body is a bit light for the style with good carbonation. Nice work on the yeast strain with huge ester but lacking body and malt profile is a bit weak for the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large foamy cream colored head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was light banana, clove, a touch of citrus and moderate bread. The aroma was bitter and bready with notes of caramel, clove, a touch of banana, tart citrus and nut. The finish was long, tart, bread, caramel, citrus and clove. Fairly full bodied. Nice.
