On tap at the art of beer festival Stammtisch. Cloudy Bronze color with a light lacing. Aroma was somewhat wheaty, with quite strong tones of bannana and apple. Flavor was malty, slightly sweet, lightly wheaty, fair amount of bannana and apple, some spicy cloves, and a general but not overpowering alcohol presence. I had the extreme pleasure of being the pourer for this beer and was able to amply sample it. vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Extreme Beer Fest Boston 2004: Has a clouded orangish color and a banana/wheat smell. Taste is very smooth of wheat/spice/banana and finishes very smooth. Overall a great wheat that I wished they would bottle... ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2004
AOBF 2004 Draught. Probably my second or third favorite at the festival. Pours a deep peach/apricot orange with some light rusty brown hues on the edges. Small yellow-beige head, moderately hazy. Aroma of rich sweet yellow fruits, caramel, wheat and yeast. Flavor is immediately intense. Sweet, succulent caramel and wheat, with a balancing sharpness coming from the big fruit esters. The yeast apparency, which is like a mix between sour german yeast and belgian yeast adds a very unique element to this beer. Towards the end, it dries out a bit and gets very creamy with some vanilla cream flavors making their way in. Finish is pretty quick and clean, surprisingly, with lots of apple-like flavor and almost a cidery feel to it. I really enjoyed the mix of fruit, yeast, wheat and malt at the start. Even though it is a bit too sweet, I thought the flavor was very interesting. Body is full, tending to medium on the finish. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2005
Draft, EBF: Cloudy orange. Strong cookie paste aroma mixes into a fruit salad and honey candies to propose a moderately sweet and juicy mixture. Strong biscuity malt though not in a helles manner. Elegant wheat chunks bring german claims that are quickly overtaken by peppery belgian yeast. Powdery melon and fruits bring some depth into this unpredictable baker’s choice. Superb dessert beer, highly carbonated, foamy and texture. Totally untraditional and as experimental as it gets. Excellent.

Sampled with Stegosaurus at Sam Adams. Andy our tour guide was kind enough to give us a sneak when we told him we were from rate beer. He said this is only used for shows and beer fests and unfortanelty will not be bottled. What A shame as it is incredible. Cloudy pour with medium head. Banna, wheat and spice aroma. Good wheat and yeast taste. Smooth finish. Really great. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Tap @ BCTC. Only sample I got two of just to make sure I really did like it as much as I did. A bit creamy and buttery. Silky smooth like a werthers original. Cloudy dark yellow oorange with a creamy head. Very drinkable. Hints of spice, and bananas and sweet oak and vanilla. Very nice. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2004
