Pours murky brown. Lively with thin head and minimal lacing. Banana, raisen,plum and chocolate on the aroma, lots of alcohol and dark fruit with a touch of liquorice. Chewy body. Lots of yeast character all the way through. Interesting and complex.

Tstamba (361) - Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2014
500 ml bottle to a snifter. Deep mahogany with foamy beige head which fades to thin lacing. There is clove, banana, dark fruit, toasted biscuit and sweet toffee on the finish. Impressive complexity for a wheat beer. Could almost pass for a Belgian triple... Very tasty.

Pours a medium dark ruby red color with a light tan head. The aroma is of sweet fruity bananas. The flavor is of sweet fruit. The body is medium with a banana aftertaste which is not my favorite. Overall it was okay.

Underdogs88 (134) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Banana upfront with notes of cloves and rich melanoidins. Appearance is brown with a slight haze. Flavor has a rich malt flavor with notes of cloves and bread. The beer is malt forward. Hop bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is full with medium high carbonation. Overall, it's a malty smooth tasting beer with notes of banana and cloves. An overall great tasting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shain (86) - ISRAEL - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Pours mostly clear dark brown with some yeast residue. A fine, dense, medium tall , beige head. Aroma of sweet jasmine, caramel, corn, floral. Mouth feel is creamy with a medium-thick body and gentle to medium carbonation. Tastes mostly sweet, but not too much, with very very light sourness and bitterness. Flavors of caramel, strong corn flavor, jasmine, bread, fresh ripe fruits, floral, clove, liquorice, grapes/berries, slight herbal-medicinal (in a good way) hops, not bitter, slight alcohol. No straight-up malt flavors. Ends not too sticky with sweet floral honey taste. Great flavor complexity, very nice drinking overall. Very sweet, yet not too sweet, thanks to the slight sourness and background hops.

Mooie donkere kleur met een flinke schuimkraag. Bier is lekker zacht van smaak. Bouquette is fruitig. Smaak wat bitter en vlak.
