Garnet colored with large frothy offwhite head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, yeast, honey, and malt. Flavor much the same. Very smooth.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2004 Re-rate 7/6/2004. Served on tap in the "correct" glass. Tons of carbonation in a couldy brown body. Brown sugar, cloves in the aroma. The start of the flavor features wheat bread, brown sugar, and deep sweet malt. Finishes with maple leaf bitterness, butter, and plummy malt. Soft and supple mouthfeel from generous carbonation, but it's not harsh. A flavorful but smooth and gentle beer.
Short-lived, fizzy head. Very carbonated. I get a plum and yeast taste with a lot of sweetness. Dunno if this one was too old, but I really didn't enjoy it. 5 / 2 / 5 / 3/ 9

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Beautiful nose, beautiful pour, fantastic head (don’t......stop; don’t..stop; don’t stop)taste reminds me of banana’s & honeycomb on wheat toast, alcohol sensation delightful (oh!yes).
Re-rate: taste like honeysuckle and smells like the 60’s: a real ray of sunshine

Very nice. Dark reddish brown in color. Tan mostly diminishing head. Bold malty aroma with hint of bananna and fruit. Sweet taste (but has complexity and not cloying)noticable alcohol but not overpowering, simply warming. Worth a repurchase. A nice bock. Check it out.

really nice cloudy ruby/burgundy color, standard rich head. Bananas, cloves, Jucyfruit gum aroma. Taste sweet, wheaty, spicy. Slightly fizzy mouth feel, but rich and malty. An extremely crisp finish, but just maybe a tad sweet at the very end for me. This, however, is an excellent beer, and probably the best of its style. Prost!

Cloudy (obviously!) auburn, with banana notes in aroma. Sweet, caramel body gives way to a clean crisp finish. One of my favourite beers from a favoured style.
