growler-thanks dmac for sharing-pours a rich light tan head and hazy gold color. Aroma is perfumy/spice, sweet medium malt. Taste is dry yeast, perfumy/spice hops, bready-light malt. Goodgrief (2039) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Sampled at Lansdale Brew Fest 2011. Mahogany pour, some head. The aroma was yeasty and sugary. Lots of fruity esters in this one, banana like flavore and lots of yeast abound. Not a bad beer. Worth a try. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Clear amber color/ lasting ivory head. Fruity banana, belgian yeast, vanilla, mild ground polycarbonate aromas. Medium bodied. Light berry fruit, phenolic flavors with pale malt, spicy yeast--a little off but not too bad. jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2011

Tap. Cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, bread and some fruit. Similar taste, but both are pretty weak. Lively carbonation and soapy feeling body. Decent, but probably not something I’d go for again. kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Mmm. That’s tasty. Clear, dark amber. White head that lasts a few minutes. Nice belgiam yeast aroma with some breast sweetness. The flavor is full but sessionable, which is the coolest thing about this beer. Its fuzzy on the palate but this subsides quickly with each taste. The flavor is so well balanced. Everything comes together outside the glass. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2011
(Draught) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, canned pineapple, biscuit, and florals. Flavor of soap, Belgian yeast, citrus, mineral, and earthiness with a dry finish. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2011
(draught) clear golden, ring creamy bubbles. Nose of hairspray, Belgian yeast, candied citrus, ginger and coriander. Taste of candied citrus, bready, dry. Not very exciting. Dishrag citrus linger. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Appearance: clear coppers and blood oranges. Nice head fades into nothing. Slow steady stream of bubbles from first quaff to last.
Nose: yeasty, doughy, spicy, phenolic, and tropical. Green banana skins, papaya, and guava. Ginger and cumin for a solid kick of spice. Coconut husks. Raw dough.
Palate: clean, spicy, and yeasty. White pepper. Coconut husk, green banana skins, papaya, and guava. Lovely. Plantains in the back swallow, long and lingering. Ginger and cumin spice tickles back of throat. Tickle on top of tongue with bitterness of coconut husk, guava and papaya skins. Flavors melt together perfectly. Dryness is gentle and creates a welcome thirst for more.
Final Thoughts: another deliciously different and intriguing Brewmasters Reserve from the ever creative genius of Garrett Oliver and the Brooklyn Brewery.
