Pours a dark amber color with a banana aroma. Taste is of baked banana bread with a clean hops film left on the tongue. A minor spice and cloves flavor that gave in to the banana taste. I could not taste any sweet flavor but was pleasantly delighted with its mixture of flavor.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Very hazy reddish amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crispy. Tangy caramel malts. Dried fruits. Whispers of brandy.and esters in the dry finish. Slightly odd but okay.

Bottle at Chriso, thanks to Kenny. It pours cloudy reddish-amber with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, brown bread, spice, bruised fruits, fruit cake, banana, apple and some tang. The taste is sweet, brown bread, clove rock, over-ripe banana, toasty,candied stuff, varnish and warming alcohol. Boozy finish. Medium+body and fine carbonation. Not much depth to it. So-so.

On tap at The Bruery. Decent beer. Dark copper and hazy. Aromas of banana, clove and some caramel. Taste follows. A bit unadventurous. But, then again, the style is not my favorite. Has some nice malted sweetness, but a bit thicker than I was in the mood for. Finishes nicely with caramel and clove coming together for a nice spicie earthiness.

Sample from 75 cl. bottle. Dark, amber colour with a thin, off-white head. Sweet aroma with dark, overripe fruits, caramel malts, banana and spices. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with spices and caramel malts. Nice Weizen.
