Bottle. A a hazy off yellow color pour with a thin foamy white head, slight lacing left, light carbonation. Aroma of wheat,light clove and bananna. Flavor is somewhat watered down, very light, some wheat malt a little yeastyness,light clove and bananna, oily mouthfeel,light body, undercarbonated , sessionable , a very light spice in the finish,lightly sweet , an odd brew , sort of misses the mark, nothing offensive but lacking in many areas for me to buy again .

12 ounce bottle from mibirder. Thanks! Pours a very inappropriate crystal clear orange color with a thin head. Poor head retention and lacing. There was some yeast hiding in the bottle that did not come out on the initial pour, giving the beer a sight haze. Aroma is bread and caramel apples. Taste is bread, citrus, apple and light spice. Lightly tart finish. Thin bodied. Lightweight overall.

jgb9348 (6654) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Hazy golden coloured body with a very thin pure white head. Aroma of corn, lavender, yeast, curacao and some bananas - very nice! Medium-bodied; Strong yeast and bananas in the taste with wheat and a mild sweetness to finish it up. Aftertaste has definite citrus fwangs with a light yeastie feel and a mild spice. Overall, seemingly nice and refreshing, well-rounded and complex. Not the best I’ve had for the style, but not a bad beer and certainly above average - worth trying! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 03-August-2008, sampled at home in Washington on 16-October-2008.

Kind of ugly, dirty yellow color. Lightly tart, with a crisp body. Prominent tastes are sweet malts (cookie and caramel) with a little bit of coriander and lemon thrown in. Aftertaste of spice and sugar lingers.

bottle. golden pour with minimal white head...aroma of wheat, clove, citrus, and banana...flavor is very much the same with large banana and lemon...clove is somewhat of an overkill in this beer as well
