Aurelius (5154) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2003 Prominent banana ester nose, without much else going on in the bouquet. Muddy, brown-yellow beer. Quite tart, yeasty with a quick tart finish. Slightly substandard mouthfeel, and not much hops. Much better with the lemon.

fiveacestx (942) - Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2012
On tap at RAM. Has a light yellow appearance and a thin white head. Has a banana nose and taste. The aroma seemed more like a kolsch. Has a thin body and a carbonated finish. Ok but not great.

2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 5-3-5-2-9=23
Cloudy orange-blond color with creamy head. The aroma is lightly fruity and feety. Some wheat flavor, mild spices and banana, light feeling of stale water.
A simple one.

2006-12-17, draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, 5-2-5-2-10=24
Muddy golden color. True aroma, with some banana. Ordinary flavor, ordinary body, light spices and fruitiness, some medicinal aftertaste. Drinkable.

Tap in Schaumburg. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is medium malt (straw, meal, cookie), banana, cloves, and citrus. Flavor is malt with spices. Light body and carbonation, low warmth with a dry finish.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a rather cloudy golden color. Nose has loads of citrus in there, as well as quite a bit of wheat and clove to it. Taste has a little banana in there, as well as just a bit of wheat. Meh.

Homer321 (4442) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Nose is peppery phenolic, clove and vanilla mostly without much banana or bubble gum. Hazy medium yellow. Small white head. Taste is moderately bitter with a weird graininess. Not very creamy and has some weird grassiness or something going on. Almost like bad dishwater.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 18, 2008
Poured the expected hazy gold color with an average white head. Bitter, medicinal aroma cut in the way of spicy clove and some sweetness. The flavor had a weird, dry minty, medicinal flavor that reminded me of Rolaids. The mouthfeel was fine. Not good.

dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2009
tap, thick bodied dark yellow with no head, (not a classic wheat cloudy appearance), almost no aroma with faint sweet malt notes, no hops on nose, taste the same, no hops noted, no real banana or clove, easy drinkin, but nothing special
