DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a big, frothy head that dissipates into a cap. A lot of carbonation in this one. Strong aroma of bready yeastiness, followed by cloves and bananas. Yeasty and sweet all the way down. Medium bodied, and has a long, spicy finish. A cheeper, American version of the style, but by no means a bad beer.

Padron4KM (690) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2015
12 oz bottle. Hazy dark golden, two finger fluffy white head, spotty lace.
Aroma is fruity, apple, pear, banana, with a dose of sweet bready malt, and herbal, and floral hops.
Flavor starts sweet and fruity banana that leads to some herbal spice, and a medium length bitter finish.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2015
Pours gold with a large head. Nose shows sweet banana notes, spicy phenols, doughy wheat and confectionery notes. Flavours likewise seem to be a cross between a hefe and a tripel. Banana, wheat, booze. Carbonation seems a bit excessive.

It is indeed golden with a big white head. The flavor is slightly hoppy with citrus and sweetness. Nice brew.

tmoreau (2986) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Have enjoyed this many times on tap, and was surprised that I hadn’t reviewed it. This time, a shared 12 oz. bottle with the local Windy City Distribution rep, poured to snifters displaying a clear & bright, golden color, with a frothy, soft white head, and web-like cling to the lacing. The nose was soft malt, sweetness, and slightly floral, with a touch of banana, other citrusy esters as lemon & orange, and spice hints as clove & coriander. The taste was similar, with a light to medium body, lively carbonation, some silkiness to the mouthfeel, modest dry & earthy bitterness, and hidden alcohol that can easily fool one into a false sense of sessionablity. A benchmark Tripel.
