jdjuice (498) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 9, 2007
Pours hazy greenish gold with a ridiculously large white head. Aroma is light, sweet and fruity with strong banana esters. Flavor is strong banana, slight spiciness and lots of malt. Alcohol makes itself felt at the tail end. Pretty good, but not too complex.

asedzie (807) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 29, 2006
UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 Golden, slightly hazy, thick white foam. Smell is sweet, yeast, wheaty, a little bit of fruit. Flavor is orange peel, a little sweet, a little bitter. Light alcohol taste throughout, but not as heavy as expected for this ABV. Palate is quite light all around really, maybe even a little watery. Refreshing, with just enough sting from the alcohol and just enough layers of flavor to keep it interesting.
