Dark cloudy amber in color with high off-white head. Aroma of malt,yeast and banana. Taste is strong sweet with thick texture. You can taste alcohol, but it’s not too much. Very nice beer.

jamaty (1152) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Trigo refermentada en botella. Marrón oscura. Espuma muy abundante (4-5 dedos) . Una efervescencia bestial recién servida. Rico aroma tostado, espaciado... Sabor complejo, lleno de matices, pasas, frutas, especias, chocolate.. Absolutamente suave en la boca. Esconde perfectamente los 8 grados... hasta que acabas con ella. Muy muy bebible. Estupenda.

GIJOE (921) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Pours a murky red-brown with a huge, foamy off-white head. Nose is dried fruits and a cider-like spunk. Taste is slightly sweet. Caramel comes through while sipping. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

estover (70) - Valencia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2015
This bottle was brewed in 2008 so it might have fallen off a tad but it is still full of warm malt and clove. There is little banana left. Nice full mouthfeel with a lingering finish. A fair amount of carbonation with a 3 finger head that settles quickly to a thin rim being quickly replaced from below. A wonderful beverage! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (2902) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2015
12.9 oz. bottle vertically poured to a logoed, proprietary glass at Lunar Brewing Co., producing a thick & frothy, light tan layer that lasted persistently on top of the cloudy, amber highlighted, brown colored liquid, leaving ribbons & patches of clingy lacing. The nose was tart & juicy, kind of prune juice-like, with additional esters as pit fruit skin, and spice as subtle clove. Medium bodied, with only average carbonation, partly due to the pour, and some creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste was more as a blend of dried fruit and some dark varieties, with complementary alcohol included. Probably a bit of age on this bottle, although I didn’t receive Chuck’s discount, but still damn smooth and tasty as the benchmark for the style.

500ml bottle. Hazy brown body with a brief medium head. Yeast, clove, banana, some ripe fruit and chocolate.
