OK, so what, a frikken nightclub, go figger. Odd yeast aroma. Taste is leather cloying sweetness. Its not as described by the bartender; a sour, BS! Not pleasant by any means, even for a tart lover. Gets strange near the end, heheh. Almost couldn’t finish this one, and I have finished every beer I every tasted. On tap at the magic tree.

Draft. Musty/yeasty lemon and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange-lemon, yeast and barley malt flavor. Nice clean, easy drinking beer.

Draught sample @ Akkurat, 22/5-14. Hazy golden. Sweet and cloying aroma with banana, honey and heavy spice. Thick sweet flavour with banana, heavy spice, honey and yeast. Ouff, too sticky and cloyingly sweet for me. At least as a sample.

omhper (25949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2014
Keg at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden, creamy head. Fruity nose with coriander, marzipan and light citrus. Mid sweet with medium-full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Fruity with plenty of coriander, notes of caramel and marzipan. Honeyish finish. Mellow and pleasant.

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2014
LIght copper, decent creamy beige head, modest wet lacing / Rich, sweet nose of banana, cough syrup, caramel, bread / Medium to full body, very sweet & somewhat syrupy, smooth but borderline cloying with low hopping, resinous / Sweet, big flavors of banana, resin, lime, honey, clove, coriander, nutmeg / A little overbearing.

Some unique aroma, like sweet spice. Taste was mild despite the high alcohol - hides it well.

VsXsV (4572) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2014
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2013. Light hazy amber liquid with medium to big white head. Aroma of jenka, white pepper, banana, bread, grapes and dried fruit. Taste is light sweet, light bitter with notes of jenka, spices, bread and grapes. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice, clean.

solidfunk (9729) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Nice floral yeast aroma but not a huge palate for this one. I can definitely taste the honey and lime peel. Pours blonde with OK head and lacing. Wheat softens malt profile. Finishes slightly sweet. Tap at whole foods for free. God Bless America.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body has a light haze with an orange-amber hue. The head is thin with poor retention, settling into a bubbly ring, but no top coating.
Aroma: Big aroma with a lot going on. I get banana, floral notes, lemon peel, a hint of sour sugar like on a Sour Patch Kid, and yeast. The aroma is big, but a bit complicated.
Taste: The intro gives bubblegum flavors with a hint of coconut. This leads to a banana prominent mid that gets stronger by the finish. The finish is a touch spicy, hints of pepper heat as well. This is a bit complicated for me.
Palate: Full-bodied, lots of carbonation.
Overall: This is a bold beer with a lot going on. I see why others would like this, but I am not a huge fan myself, it’s just too busy.

drsordr (2926) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Draft light gold. Nose bubble gum,light spice, some citrus. Similar nose, very sweet up front. Bubble gum,spice, floral. Sweet finish
