3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Colorado Springs. Pours an yellow-brown with a lasting head and clinging lace. Aroma is a thud of banana and clove, with just a touch of spice in the rear. Flavor is clove, bubblegum, and it finishes almost exactly like the taste left by eating a ripe banana. Palate is slick. Overall, an above average Hefe-Dunkel.

Excellent clove/spice, banana, overripe fruit, candi sugar, it’s all in there. A really good beer, not overly sweet like some.

Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of allspice, cinnamon and clove with a bit of a peppery note in there. Taste is of figs, brown sugar, pepper, and banana as well as a touch of perry. Well balanced and very enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bronze, with a gigantic swiss cheeze head.
Rich, grainy aroma with plenty of yeasty spices and a bit of booze that mingled together very nicely.
Easy drinking, the wheaty malt can become a bit cloying. It finished silky smooth with witbier banana ester yeastiness. Mixed along with something salty to kill off the sweetness, this Beer is fantastic.

Nice appearance. Light, mostly clear brown with just the right size white head (small/medium). Aroma of caramel malt, maybe a bit of chocolate. Much the same in the flavor except that i also seem to get just a hint of a nutty flavor in there too maybe. Also i can notice a bit more chocolate in the flavor. Only a small hint of wheat. Not bad at all. A good all around beer that I wouldn’t mind to drink again.

Bottle. Sweet banana, apple and malt aroma. Orange-brown coloe with small head. Sweet-sour malt flavor - a tart apple finish. Light bodied. Not nearly as good as their Hefe.

Sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2005. Cloudy orangish amber with a thick, off-white head. Aroma contains some light banana, roasted barley, and orange peel. Some grainy rye, caramel, more orange peel, and crisp wheat flavor. Very low phenol level, barely any is detectable. Smooth bodied.

WOW! Sweet, malty, chocolate aroma. Flavor was full of chocolate and wheat. Best surprise I have had in a long time. I hope to buy some of this again soon.

Beautiful murky orangish-brown in color with a pillowy, fluffy, grey and 3/4" tall head. Aroma allures with banana, nutmeg, cloves, pepper and cocoa. Flavor elaborates with a light banana and chocolate presence complimented by tiny spicing accents pepper, cinnamon and cloves. Sugared lemons round out the corners with a brown-sugared oats component, which gently transition to something more in line with bran flakes. Fairly light bodied and an easy drinker, finishing like a weakened chocolate banana milkshake.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a foamy tan head. Flavors of banana, wheat, and citrus, with livening hints of spice. Low carbonation really makes the flavors stand out.
