Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker, translucent brown with a bubbly beige head of foam. No retention. The aroma is oddly metalic with some nuts and mild esters trying to come through. The taste is a little more active with the clove and banana esters coming through nicely. This beer actually does taste pretty good. Nice level of carbonation. Overall, it isnt too bad.

12 oz bottle from notes late 2012/early 2013. Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have banana, wheat bread, raisins, hints of chocolate and spices, thin body, ok but nothing to get really excited about.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Amy! Dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of slight dark malts, hints of roast, touch of sour fruits, hints of caramel, toffee, touch of spice and earth. Taste is a mix of sweet and sour fruits, touch of caramel, toffee, slight earth, spice, finishing fairly tart, slightly sweet. Ok.

Twelve ounce bottle from The Party Source, tasted on December 30, 2012. Very dark coffee color, assertive nose with yeast, spice, banana and vinous-like notes, thin body, fairly big sweet flavor with raisin, plum and other fruit notes. Some astringency detracted a little from the overall experience but a pretty good beer overall.

12oz bottle pours a opaque deep brown with some creamy, off white head. Nose is drenched in pitted fruit, plum, prune, raisin, dark bread, rum, candy sugar, a little malt vinegar, some dried cherry. Flavor is interesting, bread crust, light smoke, earthy, dirty parsnip, flat cola, a little wheat chaff, some dried cherry, prune. Watery finish.

weihenweizen (3487) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours dark brown with off-white head which dissapates quickly. Little lacing, medium/low carbonation, and light sweet banana aroma. Taste is some banana, light roasted malt, and a hint of milk chocolate. Pretty easy to drink, but needs more flavor.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of toffee and caramel. Very light flavors of caramel, earthy, banana, some coffee perhaps? Pretty sweet. Thin. OK.

obguthr (6098) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle from b3shine: Aroma is raisins, babyfood, and a bit of barnyard. Cloudy brown, thin tan head. Vegetal and astringent, wood and soot discernible, black currants. Not wonderful.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pours a dark brown color with a thin light-brown head. Aroma is roast malt, some sour fruitiness, hints of cocoa. Taste is similar with the fruit notes becoming most prominent and adding in a tangy tartness. This really caught me off guard but I didnt dislike it. The fruitiness was interesting and probably the only thing that made this beer memorable. I can at least appreciate that.
