Murky golden orange, yeast is powerful in the nose along with big bananas and apricots, and even some coconut and sweet bready apples. Bright and sweet apples and cake flavors, really too sweet but very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 Kaffir lime leaves and citrus zest create an enticing perfumy mist over the ample malt background...Wheat is apparent and plays off the lemony spiciness quite effectively...A curious novelty ale which caresses the tastebuds pleasurably for a while but gets a bit tiring towards the end of the glass...A très spicy lifestyle...

Bomber at RBSG. Golden pour, white head. A bit old, some vegetable soup elements. Sweet - grape and fig. Okay.

On tap at City Beer. Pours golden blonde with a modest off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty sweet molasses and fruit flavor with the lime very evident, and a slightly bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours with a hardly any head and a deep golden body. Aroma of raisins, bread, honey and berry. Taste is baked bread, berries, oxidation, banana and must. Tickling carbonation and a water like mouthfeel. Still quite good.

"a strong saison indeed...or an UBER hefe...either way...pretty good stuff here. i wasn’t a big belgian fan when i first tried this but it sent me down that road. tasted mellower but possibly better 2 years later - haven’t had one since."

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a good white head. Aroma is a mixture of yeast, hops, lime, and malt with the lime and banana dominating. Taste is of yeast and malt with a little citrus - a slightly heavier wit beer with more depth. Very good beer that finishes clean, smooth, and has you wanting more. Alcohol is there, but not too strong. Not your typical Stone and I wish it would become a regular... Should not be classified as a Belgian strong ale - much less sweet.

pretty excitable, was in a hurry to get out of the bottle. murky amber. quite a yeasty aroma, not sure if i would have noticed lime if it wasn´t mentioned on the bottle but anyway. tasted largely of cloves with a little banana and watermelon, very sweet, with a strange background-lurking citric tang that was a little off-putting. i dunno, okay but a bit of a mess

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Managed to find a bottle of this. Poured out with ample carbonation to bring about a thick white head. The color has a hazy orange-ish hue. I get the aroma of lime and banana mixed with alcohol, interesting. There is a bit of malt aroma hiding out in the back. The taste reminds me of many a Belgium type beer with the spice presence along with the twisted yeast-lime-banana-hop combination. The flavors are just picked from the garden fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber thanks to someone a bit ago. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is a stale cuppa tea, some grains and lemon. The flavor is also tea-like with some paper, light fruit and banana. Of course it is downhill, but I kind liked it.
