On tap at L’Amère à Boire, pours a cloudy rusted brownish red with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted nuts, leather, and dry caramel upfront, with some very mild dark fruit and spice presence. Flavour is refreshingly fruity, with banana especially, cut down by toasted nuts, dry caramel malts and some feint spiciness. Medium-bodied, with good flavour depth and well-balanced complexity. Very enjoyable. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2006

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Malty aroma. Decent sized head on medium orange body. Very malty taste, decent drinkability. Smooth mouthfeel.Seemed to be cloning the Aventus, but too sweet. j12601 (11000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2012

Dark brown with a smallish off white head. Sweet and fruity malt in both flavour and aroma, light yeasty notes. Alcohol lingers more as it worms. Fruity, not quite raisins, candy like sugar and sweet caramel malt. Medium smooth palate. (3+) Very nice. MartinT (9852) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2006

-A sheet of foam protects the hazy dark sunset.
-A wealthy banana purée is spread onto the humble cloves, which had been sprinkled on a bready yeast; an aroma which spells out dessert.
-A rather sweet flavor profile offers plenty of caramelized bananas.
-The luxuriously filling body benefits from the pillowy carbonation.
<i>What if you dig deeper?</i>
-Clovey phenols glow brighter in the last half of the sip.
-A fruit cake-like, candied personality sticks to the velvety banana esters, making this glass a little heavy on the sweet side of things after a while.
-Biscuity pils malt subtly salute the nose.
-This is neither an Aventinus, nor a Celebrator, but indeed a scrumptious realm rotating around this imaginary binary star system; life is thriving here, and it is beautifully complex and merry.
