Sour aroma and a large head of foam. Suprisingly good flavor for 8.5%. One of my favorites by far.

The most accomplished mass produced beer on the planet. Great clarity colour aroma flavour. Consistently excellent despite expansion of the brewery.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 750 ml bottle. The aromas really come alive in its bodacious head (please pardon my retro lingo). First thing you notice when drinking is the almost champagne like carbonation, followed by the perfect blend of spiciness, citrus, and hops along with a great finishing taste. For some reason the 750 ml tastes better than the 330 ml to me.

Finally rating this one officially. One of the first big beers I had and definitely did not appreciate it then. Appreciate it way more now. Big fruity and yeasty aromas. Smooth bread and citrus taste.

Pretty standard BSA...rich golden yellow, but it does have a huge fluffy head...almost too huge. Aroma is candi and bread. Flavor is candi, bread, spicey yeast, and a bit of alcohol. Mouthfeel is a bit wet and has a fairly bitter finish.

sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2006
bottle. brownish yellow. very carbonated, tons of lacing and mammoth foam head. smells like a wit. tastes like bananas and huge bittering finish. sour. not particularly pleasant, but the abv is cool.

KnutAlbert (6791) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2006
Deceivingly blonde. Rocky head, sour overtones, an amazingly complex beer. Available everywhere, but that does not neccecarily mean that it’s not a mighty fine beer!

I love this stuff! The head is so thick I can get some on a spoon for my daughter to play with (or eat).

MrBunn (2848) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Ridiculous white head (obnoxiously large) covers a light straw colored body. Aromas are yeasty with some citrus, bananas and cloves that come out as it warms. Flavor is of dough, a bit of a sour citrus character, yeast, cloves and grass. These blend together well and the product is understated yet remarkably well-crafted.
