Turbid gold pour - nose is very hefe like, with clove, bubblegum, banana, some dusty yeast and tangy wheat, along with a mild overripe apple sweetness - creamy body, soft texture - flavor is tangy up front, but mostly dry throughout, with light phenols of clove and white pepper - earthy, bready yeast notes - lightly spicy finish - very tasty - blows the original recipe out of the water. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle @ home. Unfiltered. Bright, cloudy, golden orange appearance with a slightly off-white head. Rich spicy clove, orange citrusy, juicy citrusy, wheat malty aroma that’s quite nice. A bit bready, spicy yeasty, big orange/lemon citrusy flavor with lots of vanilla, banana and clove elements. Really tastes like they used a German Hefe yeast to me. Definitely better than the previous version and an excellent wheat beer. arminjewell (9669) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy orange with white head, aroma has notes of clove, biscuit, vanilla, yeasty bread, some nice banana, toffee notes, slight fruity pear and white grape, nice smelling. Taste is nice sweet lemon, biscuit, some banana, clove, nice vanilla and honey, hints of yeast and bread, finishing fairly sweet. Nice wheat beer, better than the first batch by far.

Bottles. Cloudy orangey yellow pour. Aroma is citrus and over ripe banana. Taste is a little sour with some light banana flavor. Body is light. Easy to drink these one after another. robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Poured a nice golden yellow, nose of sweet honey, wheat, and fruits. Very crisp, and refreshing, with flavors of honey and wheat., maybe even a hint of spice. It is more like a filtered wheat beer, very light and not much sediment, but pretty good. Better flavor than most beers of this style (lighter wheat). Perfect for as summer seasonal.

I’m not sure if I had the ’11 or the ’12. I don’t remember the alcohol content, and I didn’t save the bottle. Whatever it was, it isn’t the greatest beer, but it’s not bad either. IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 3, 2012
12 oz bottle from Country Club Liquors. Nose is light banana, cloves, and a bit of grassy hops. Hazy yellow with a medium yellow tinged head. Flavor is lightly bitter, lightly sweet, and lots of ripe bananas.Body seems a little watery but what should I expect from a 4.5% ABV beer?

On tap. Pours with a hazy golden hued body with a lasting white head that leaves decent lace. Aromas are malt forward, bready, grainy wheat. Low citrusy notes, peppery, clove, medium yeast phenol. Very light isoamyl acetate. Malt dominant. Flavors are bready, grainy and wheat like, a bit of vanilla, light clove, some esters. Malt dominates the flavor, low bitterness, finishes pretty crisp with a light herbal note (hop I’d assume). Lightly chewy body, pretty dry finish, fuller carbonation. Pretty decent wheat. adrosson (148) - California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Very good summer beer. Citrus flavors. Smell a bit of banana. Maybe some cloves and spicy. Clean watery finish.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. About a finger of head. Color was straw orange. Light gray lacing that went away very quickly. No film on the sides.
Initial smell was alcohol, then came the banana and cloves. Circus Peanuts, grass, wheat, bread, bubblegum, and some light lemon citrus notes.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got wheat, cloves and banana up front. Also grass, bread and light Circus Peanuts (not as much as the smell).
Light-to-medium body. Sticky texture. Above average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. Refreshing.
I’ve had the Solace many times before, but this was the first time I rated it. It was just like I remembered it, decent, but not good. It is good for a June/July day, though.
