3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fruity, banana aroma. Large thick white head. Lacing is all over the glass. A fairly clear golden body with champagne bubbles rushing to the top of the glass. Slowly waiting for the head to shrink. The nice thing about that is you can let the beer warm up that way. The alcohol is very well hidden in this. Similar to Duvel with a dryer finish. My only complaint is that this beer is slightly one dimensional. It still is solid for what it is though.

On tap at Everybody’s pizza. Big, blond, robust, and spicy. Just like I like my women. Not particularly my favorite at the time in the right place, this would be an awesome drink. Points off for setting if I can do that.

The only reason I did not give this a 20 was because that spot is for my Duvel! This brew was absolutely splendid! Perfectly blonde ale with a great clean head. Excellent smooth yet robust flavour!

Sadly I lack the proper glassware for this beer. Nonetheless, in a pint glass head was abundent and hung around with some fairly large bubbles. Color was dark amber with some cloudiness. Odor was fruity and slightly earthy with a certain effervescence.
First sip revealed a sweet malty taste with very little hop taste. The beer had what I wrote was a "mature" alcohol taste...a sweet, pleasant slightly burning sensation, like a bourbon.
After some recent bad experiences with what must have been very old imported beer, I have to say this brought me back into the fold. 8% alcohol probably helps this beer stand up over time...and a 98% rating likely means that it moves off the shelf in a reasonable amount of time.
I got this beer as an 11.2 oz single from my local beer-savvy retailer (Discount Liquor in Milwaukee).

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 Pale yellow with white head. Yeast, fruit and wheat. Coriander, clove & citrus. Fresh! Lively carbonation. great filling and a long pleasant finish. (remember too pour it into a large glass because of the carbonation and the fine head)!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Federal in Durham, NC. Clear golden color with an orange tint. Bubbly white head that laced the glass. Aroma is estery with a touch of brown sugar and apple. Taste is similar, again with the clove and banana, but there is also a sweet candy note with a splash of alcohol. Very very bubbly. Pretty tasty.

Pale yellow, full froth with medium length hang time. Ample residual bubbles with champagne bubbles. Candy malt nose. Big fruit flavors yet dry. The wheat really comes through with a hefewiezen character. A complex brew that is well ballanced with a long tastey finish. Enjoy cold or warm. Highly recommended.
