Pours a cloudy brown with a off white head. Heavy banana aroma and some wheat. Very sweet beer, the ripe banana flavor has a lot to do with it. Some nice wheat notes and some clove. Very enjoyable. Worth a try.

GABF 2007. An unclear orange-brown beer with a thn orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of wheat and banana as well as other fruits. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of alcohol, bourbon? and wheaty, leading to a dry wheaty finish. Nice one.

Shared by sliffy from the growler. Light malt aroma with some sweet candy notes as well. Deep brown body with a thin head. Medium palate at best. Caramel flavors up front with some yeast, banana, and roasted flavors. A hodgepodge of flavors for sure.
