KyotoLefty (7453) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2008
Cloudy, even murky, with an orange-gold color, thick white head. Rich wheat malt aroma, ahh, but with so much hop! Sweet, yeasty, banana, cloves, citrus. Never smelled anything quite like it before. Rich flavor, lots of wheat malt, sweet, with tons of bananas, alcohol, but infused with hops. Spices, lots of citrus and grapefruit. Amazingly complex. Tastes lighter than 8.2%. A very original beer that is almost but not quite perfect, very well done and tasty as hell. The hops are matched very well with the weizen. There are all kinds of fruits, and the hops really prick it up and make it less cloying than your usual weizen bock. Excellent stuff.

Pours a hazy, light gold in color. Decent head on the pour. Smell is wheat, but I’m getting quite a bit of clove in this as well. You get a bit of the lemony banana flavor in the taste. A little zing from the citrusy hops. Decent mouthfeel and a pretty easy drinker for being 8.2%.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Bottle. Hazy and buff colored with a huge soap bubble head. Sharp and spicy citrus and bubblegum aroma. Tart, quenching, spicy and hoppy with citrus and some hints of vanilla and toasted bread. Well carbonated and full in body but still refreshing. Amazingly light in character for such a high strength beer. It has a lingering banana/citrus hop flavor that melds well with the mellow dry bitterness. This is an inspired and well executed ale.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2010 Bottle. Nice orange color, good head. Aroma is fruity, spicy and some hops maybe. Taste is spicy fruity, yeast, lemon and some bitterness in the aftertaste. Hoppy with some bananas. Dry as well. Smooth very easy to drink. Carbonation level is medium. No trace of the alcohol (8.2) what so ever. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

16.9 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large, fluffy linen white head that is fed for several minutes by lots of tiny carbonation bubbles and lasts through two-thirds of the glass. A few light-colored floaters at the bottom of the glass. Very pleasant aroma of wheat, yeast, lemon and a bit of bubblegum. The flavor is wheat, yeast, lemon and orange. Mildly bitter at the finish and slightly drier as well. This is a thoroughly enjoyable summer beer, and I will be sure to be pick up a few more bottles before the summer ends.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with medium off white head. Aroma is yeasty and somewhat hoppy and wheaty. Flavor has some alcohol, some light banana and lemon (very light) and comes to a fairly dry and lightly herbal finish. No big flavors here, except the alcohol which considering is actually strong but well hidden at the same time. Interesting and good.

Headbanger (3524) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2008
16.9 oz bottle(My bottle has different label)-Pours a murky orange with a nice tight white head. Aroma of wheat, hops, banana, and a little bit of alcohol. Taste of the same with more hops, spices, banana, and finishes with a light dryness. This medium bodied brew is very tasty and quite balanced. Can’t wait to try the Brooklyn version.

blankboy (6525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear, then hazy, then murky yellow-gold with a large mostly-lasting fizzy/frothy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of banana, spices, floral hops, yeast, citrus and sweet malt -- quite nice. Flavour of yeast, floral hops and alcohol (more hops and alcohol then I expected) along with spices, light banana and citrus. A decent light bitter alcoholic finish. Quite carbonated, almost too much so. Medium bodied. Very good, and quite interesting, I’ll need to get more.
