ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/14/12

Aroma: The nose is nothing much, some lemon zest, a little least, and not too much else
Appearance: It pours a hazy goldenish color with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, a good amount of clove, and a light-medium bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has an aliright feel, and a slightly dry, slightly spicy finish
Overall Impression: Overall, I was not overly impressed by this one. It was not a bad beer, but it just felt like a miss in quite a few different categories. I wouldn’t rush out for this one again.

EithCubes (4699) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle. Nose strongly phenolic with medium wheat, still a little weak. Gradient golden pour and an ephemeral head (doesn’t last long at all). Medium-full body with great crispness, very faint clove with fainter rubber. A touch of slime, and very good carbonation. Just citrus and sweet malt. Refreshing, indeed, but not worth the Maisel’s glass it was poured into.

Aroma frontal citric wheat character , slight harshness , spice on side.

Aroma is wheat, malt and some spice, hazy orange/apricot, pours a small white head. Flavour is fine wheat, some malt and a hint of corriander. Light bodied, very well balanced, fine spiciness, lovely mouthfeel. Terrific! Thank You Radek Kliber.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2010
On draft at the brewery. Plenty of banana flavor up front. The aftertaste is a little cloying, but the initial flavors are very nice. The cloves are backround noice, and the banana is front and center. Light and easy to drink if you don’t pay too much attention to the finish.

zach8270 (3352) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Gold color with a decent amount of white foam. Aroma is light with some slight hints of cloves, wheat, and banana. Flavor is a strong banana and clove hint at the beginning that switches quickly to a bitter and tart wheat taste. Finishes bitter and grainy with a light banana sweetness.

Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Wheat banana and some light spices. Citric with hints of copper and vegetational notes. Eh what a mess.
