Ibrew2or3 (7055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Bottle courtesy of douglas88. It pours deep opaque gold with off white head. The modest aroma emits a touch of apple, some sugary yeasty spices and apricot. The taste is smooth and begins with spices and yeast them moving into fruit flavors like apples, apricots and a thin layer of lemon like acidity to round things out. It ends smooth and a bit drying creating a refreshing sensation. Nice stuff.

dmac (4175) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle shared at Moosetoberfest. Poured a deep golden almost amber with a small white frothy head. Aroma of yeast, alcohol, white grapes, chardonnay and banana. Thin watery body with very slight carbonation. Flavor of white grape juice, chardonnay, oak and yeast. This one just didn’t impress me despite the cool name and bottle.

Wax topped bottle acquired @ brewpub. Banana, yeast, and spice in the nose. Cotton candy, honey, and spicey flavor...overly sugary, especially for the ABV. Somewhat syrupy. Glad to try it but not great.
