pinkzambia (1803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2006
On Tap at Flying Pie on Fairview: This wonderfully expensive ($5 for 12 oz) and tasty beer is cloudy brown as seen in the picture. It has rich aromas of dates, figs and olives. It has other complexities in the tastes such as a small dose of saddle soap and grass clipping. It has a sweet finish and hides the 8% alcohol well. It has a slight silage aftertaste that flirts with a hefeweizen. Pretty good.

Eladerman (82) - Newburgh, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2006 This beer is very similar to and is as complex tasting as some of the best Belgian Strong Dark Ales that I’ve had. It has a little more Caramel malt flavors tho and a stronger banana /yeasty ester flavor base. A damn Good brew no doubt. A little on the sweet side, but in this beer that isn’t a bad thing at all, in fact it defines the brew.

jhliesen (818) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle-Yum, drank it before I ever looked up the ratings, so I was happily surprised. The aroma was mostly fruity bananas with a touch of clove. The plate was perfect leaving behind a touch of sour on the back of the tongue and the roof of the mouth. Great stuff.

Bursting with aroma of figs, walnut and maple, lightly coated with melon overtones. Burnt copper color, with light bubbly quickly dissipating head. Clear. Solid flavor, fruity without really tasting like fruit. Banana, and some fig provides a taste of sweetness coupled nicely with clove. Amazingly good balance, with the flavor and carbonation as well. little bubbles floating up like champaigne throughout the drink. A great beer!

This is a really interesting style of beer. I just kind of stumbled on it while considering my next batch of home brew. I found a clone recipe and was lucky enough to find a commercial version to try. The head does not linger or is it long lasting as described...for this one the carbonation is locked in. There’s some fruitiness in the aroma that is beating around the bush. You don’t get a good sense for it until you take a sip. The effervescent bubbles finally show up and the aroma comes to life. This one is fruity and slightly tart on the tongue. I can taste cherries and other spices. The malt flavors come through but is nicely balanced by the adjuncts. The alcohol plays a bigger role that it should in the taste but overall this is a really good beer.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Pours with a humongous off-white head on a slightly cloudy golden-brown body. Strong malty aroma with lots of banana, nuts and spices. Very yeasty. Strong malty-banana taste on a spicy, thick body that coats the inside of the mouth.
