omhper (21261) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2009
Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Cloudy golden, brief head. Strong perfumy aroma of banana esters and bubblegum. Sweet and honeyish, above medium bodied with clean rounded, solid mouthfeel. Moderately warming finish without bitterness. While stylistically a perfect rendition of a German Weizenbock it has a certain American feel to it favouring more direct and upfront appeal above depth.

Cloudy orange beer, small white head. Semi dry and semi soft palate. Tiny bit of caramel wheat gives way to banana, bubblegum and then some mild orange citrus. Finishes semi dry with a carbonated sting. Decent.

harrisoni (15040) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
On tap at The Rake. Cloudy gold, little head. Banana estery aroma. This is rubbish. Just all over the place. The alcohol doesn’t go with the banana, the hops don’t go with anything and the clove is pretty poor. I struggled to finish a half. Over carbonated too. You do get used to it, but it’s not a good beer and I passed up Dark Star Impy Stout on cask for this.??

brokensail (13201) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazed golden orange color with a finger or two of off-white head. S: Big time banana to the nose. A moderate spice character, mostly clove, with plenty of sweet bread and caramel malts. Nice wheat character and a hint of bubblegum. T: Great banana flavor along with some hints of orange. Clove gives a nice spiciness to the beer and there is plenty of sweet bread, toffee, and wheat. Really a nice flavor. M: Medium in body and carbonation. O: Easily the best beer in the Beer Camp pack and a pretty solid beer all around.
