An excellent ale. Combination of a brown ale and a hefeweizen. Flavors are very strong with a heavy wheat base. Aroma is mildly sweet. Appearance is light brown with a thick head. A wonderful malty flavor with rich toasted accents.

This pours a deep auburn with a small head that dissipates quickly. Delightful aroma of bananas and raisins. Lightly carbonated and creamy mouth feel. Refreshing fruity flavors that include banana, plum, cherry, with hints of chocolate and caramel. It is well balnced and not too sweet. I highly recommend this beer to anyone and everyone.

[Bottle, February 2007] Pours dark murky brown. Aroma is berries and chocolate. Flavor chocolate with a bit of carmel and hints of berries. Quite complex. Mouthfeel is crisp and light. Surprising for a dark beer. Amazing stuff.

500ml bottle. Average fizzy off-white head with the color of light brown at the top and bottom of the glass and dark brown in the middle. Aroma is of bubble gum, banana, cloves, and some malts. Flavor is complex; sweet maltiness with light sourness in finish (in pleasant way). Slight alcohol flavor but not enough to damage the flavor. This is one good beer!

5000ml - Turbulent pour releases hoppy, citrusy aromas from the toffee colored liquid. Substantial frothy head of large bubbles lasts, leaving nice lace. Big, beefy, thick flavor, almost oily in texture, fading to sweet, nutty finish.

slittly hazy brown with white head.Nose of gely, wheat then strong banana. Crispy and refreshing for an 8.2% . Flavor of cereal, banana, physalis. The head stays until the end...

I hate to be the dissenting voice, but I found this beer to be just a touch too sour for my palate. It was pleasant enough to drink after the initial impression and I would have probably gone back for seconds, but just too sour for me. Although I can see why it gets rave reviews.

Cloudy copper color with a huge head. Spare lacing. Aroma is cloves, bananas, wheat and sweet malts. Full bodied and sweet finishing.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 On tap at the Acadia Cafe. Hazy mahagony with a hint of orange glow. Clove and banana wheat and yeast aroma, with citrus candy. Taste brings elements of brown sugar and clove to infuse a dark, bready body. Simple and substantial. Finishes subtley citrusy and sour, dry and nutty with indefinite length. Entirely lovely.
