Okay beer. Very hoppy and slightly bitter. Not too easy to drink. Aroma is hoppy, bready. Taste has a bit of cereal and light wheat flavor in the background as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Land O Lakes World of Beer. Pours a clear pale golden amber with a thin but creamy foamed head. Nice lacing along the glass. Aroma has a fair bit of sweetness to pair with the banana and yeast notes. Flavor is again slightly sweet upfront with a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Dusty bready malt notes on top of the banana and yeast give it an interesting mixture of flavors. For me the sweetness prevents it from being a great session beer but it is a decent one.

Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma picked up sweet banana, cloves, and pine/sprucey hoppage over lightly-biscuity malt.. aromatic grasses and light tropical fruit accented.. interesting stuff. The flavor found soft pale and lesser bready malts at the core, with citrus and pine bitterness plus peppery yeast around.. finished with fresh, greener hops and banana and black pepper from the yeast. Lighter-bodied and fairly well carbonated on the palate.. balance was alright, but the hops were a little too assertive for the size of the beer.. refreshing in the end.. good sessionable drink.

Bought a single bottle from local liquor store.
Was hoping for a great beer , this was not it. Aroma is Belgian Yeast and bread .The flavor is banana, spices and some fruit malt. Something seems way off on this release.
If Summits goal was to duplicate a leffe beer it probably got have way there. I could not finish more than 1 of these. Lets hope next release is better!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Hazy yellow with a soapy head and high carbonation; finishes clean. Aroma of lemon zest, cracked peppers, yeasts and pale malts. Flavor is yeasts, peppers, lemon zest and pale malts. Body is light and the carbonation is a notch above that, making it crisp. A bit pricey but a good sessionable beer otherwise.

Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is earthy, floral and a bit bready. Taste is similar with heavy emphasis on the floral component with just a hint of black pepper and a really unpleasant finish. Not very good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is some dusty grain and a bit of yeasty esters. Flavor is more grain malt with a slight grassy hop with a chalky dry finish. Nothing great but decent for a sample.
