750mL flip-top thanks to argo0. Pours a clearer deep cola ruby. Medium beige to yellow foam. Dunkelweizen nose, chocolate covered banana dessert, estery, mild plastic, a bit doggy. Taste is papery, alcoholic, abrasive, dry. Mild chocolate banana, mint, paper. Fiancee said it tasted old and stale. Palate has some acid, sugar, maple, decent density. Not too bad.

The beer is light copper with a small head. The aroma brings banana, malt, booze, fruity esters. The flavor is a tad harsh, with bananas soaked in alcohol. This is ok. Best in small doses.

Stewed apple aroma with banana accents. Clear maroon, thin yellow head. Clove and stewed apple flavor. Medium body, spritzy. Apple skin finish.
