3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. Poured with a frothy light tan head. Nice dark appearance with a light flavor for the color. Decent amount of wheat flavor with a bit of malt to round off the flavor. A decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500mL bottle. A cloudy copper pour with a big, creamy light-tan head that lasts until the bottom of the glass. Lots of lemon, banana, yeast and wheat in the aroma along with some malts. A bit more body than the Hefe Weissbier and thankfully, not as much carbonation. Very similar to the Hefe Weissbier (lots of bananas, lemon, wheat and yeast) only with some sweet malts and quite a bit of sourness. A step up from the Hefe Weissbier.

A bit lighter in flavor and palate then I expected but still a enjoyable beer. Good color and sustained head. The malts were a bit sweet on the sweet side. I would drink this again.

Brown in color. Nice head to it. Had some interesting flavors in it. I detect a few fruity flavors. This is a solid beer.
