4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Standard Tap...
Appears a hazy light gold with a small white cap that fizzles into a small bubbly film.
Smell seems like a mix between a hefe & wit. Lots of bubblegum, bananas, and wheat, with a bit of clove, coriander, and pepper.
Taste is of the same mix with a mild doughyness to it and perhaps the ever slightness of sulpher that isn’t too noticable.
Drinkability is good. A nice brew that I hope to see more of in the future.

Hazy dark straw color with a few floaties. Medium head & aroma of citrus, wheat and lemonade. Good wheaty flavors, with notes of citrus, lemon zest and a hint of spice. Body is slightly chewy. I enjoyed it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Sampled this one on draft at the State College beer festival. It poured a very cloudy medium golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was sweet banana and cloves. The flavor is strong banana, moderate cloves and a hint of citrus. The banana and clove elements linger on the palate.
1/2006 - tried the bottle version. Very boring, scores: 3/2/3/2/8.

On tap. Poured a hazy dark golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of bananas, lemons (I asked this one to be served without a lemon wedge), and cloves. Almost a pepperminty aroma as well. Tastes of wheat, cloves, bananas and light citrus. Very good hefe.
