A hazed amber pour with an off-white head. Very floral hop profile, lots of rye, and toasted bread. A bit of grass, notes of pine, and a lot of yeast. The flavor is very heavy on the toasted notes. Rye, mild sweetness of bread, and floral hops. Lightly grassy, some bitterness on the finish, and overall quite dry. jhgrantjr (473) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2013
I had this on tap at Flying Saucer with several samples. I drank this one towards the end after some IPAs so take that into consideration. Poured a golden color with a sweet aroma: floral, citrus, fruitiness. Certainly a fruity taste.

Aromas of citrus fruit, floral fragrance, peach, fruity esters, cherries, and light caramel. Clear ruby, off-white head, light retention. Fruity, bitter, and peppery. Full bodied, with moderate carbonation, and a long spicy and bitter finish. Drake (13741) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy rust color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral notes, caramel, rye, and banana. The taste is strong spicy rye, banana, pale malts and a mild vegetal note. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Pretty interesting. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Well, they either did this one again, or it has been held on to for a few years and then put out again, since I just picked up a growler from Whole Foods. Pours a medium amber, a bit reddish, slight head. Aroma is peppery. Flavor is an interesting mix of peppery notes, with the pepper from the rye mingling with a peppery, earthy hop bitterness, and then finishing with strong black pepper phenols from the Belgian yeast. Lasting, aspirin like bitterness. Maybe they were hoping the phenols would fall back with some aging. Instead, apparently the fruit and citric notes fell out, but everything else stayed strong. Too bad, an interesting concept worthy of some experimentation.

Is this really retired? ’Cause I had it on tap last night. It was tasty. Smells like tobacco, coffee, rye, and yeast. Flavor is tobacco, rye toast, and some yeast. Off beat, but tasty. nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2012 On tap. Nearly opaque cranberry-rust color with a lasting ring of cream. Nose of bubble gum, banana, caramel, resin and earthy spices. Taste is banana bubblegum, earthy spice, lemon, toast, resin. Medium body is tingly with medium carbonation and a dry resinous finish. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Tap at Hamilton’s. Clear medium auburn with a small off - white head, down to a film within a few mins. Lots of fruity belgian yeast and banana in the nose, though not too sweet, just a little rye and toasted malt behind. Flavor is a little toastier, still plenty yeasty, clean ripe banana. Never sweet, dry finish, little rye. Bitterness at a 3. Soft light to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Quite tasty. Good job at a Belgian style. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
