Draught, 5% at the brewpub. Weak banana aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Small white head. The flavour is sweet with some clean banana. Hint of spices. OK sweetness. Good bitterness for the style.

Very bright banana/apricot aroma. A little bit of melon and a touch of light lemon as well. Creamy palate. Despite the bright aroma, the flavour seems a little bit muted. A touch of clove but this is also quite dim. Finishes quite watery. Meh.

3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Draught at the brewery. Properly cloudy yellow color, and juice-like in appearance with a white head, moderate thick lacing on the glass. Very punchy, spicy, doughy yeast scented, with pulp-like orange and lemon scents. Chewy and sweet on the tongue, juicy, a bit too much for me even, like a heavy pulp fruit juice (with respect to texture). Lacks dryness and a little sourness, but otherwise it’s tasty and well-made. Frothy up front, then a bit oily on the palate, then finishes prickly and spicy.

blipp (9175) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Draft. Pours hazy gold with an off white head. The aroma is fruity, both banana and lemon, some spice. The flavor is fruity sweet and has a bit more spice than the aroma.

nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a hazy, straw yellow with a thin, white head. Nose of bubblegum, coriander, Hef yeast, grass. Flavor is sweet, candy, bubblegum, spices, cotton candy, yeast. Finish is sweet and lightly chalky.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On tap July 2008: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of sweet malted wheat and some banana esters with good German yeastiness. Body starts fairly full with good sweetness and some authentic clove spice and a drier more bitter biscuity finish. Pretty drinkable and true to style.

3.3
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
On tap, at brewery. Cloudy yellow orange body with a one finger frothy white head. Big estery nose with a heavy dose of yeast and some slightly earthy wheat. The flavor is yeasty with some light clove spice and a touch of over-ripe banana. Long lingering clove note on the finish. Medium bodied with a slightly thick chewy texture. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Not bad, but not great either. If anything I think it was a bit heavy for me.
