Straight from the growler during eagles game. Aroma was of caramel, bananas yeast. Flavor was much the same, sticky and floral hops, some rootedness as it warmed. Not bad but a little to sticky for my liking.

Tap at the brewpub. Aroma of clove, citrus, hint of bubblegum, earthy hops. Flavor sweet with the citrus and bubblegum, banana comes into play for me here. Rather heavy in the mouth. Just ok.

On tap at Stewarts. Pours a cloudy orange/brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of vegetal notes, clove and spices. Flavor of those same notes, lots of spices and vegetal notes. I didn’t really enjoy this. 6/4/6/3/13 (3.2/5)

GMCC2181 (1613) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 7, 2009
On tap at Stewarts. Poured into a pint glass. Light brown in color, small head. On the nose a small hint of banana. Taste is wheat, sweet bread, yeasty and banana. Rich in texture, sugary sweet. Overall a beer that I enjoyed.

Poured from a fresh growler into my weizen glass, courstesy goodgrief/doulos31. Aroma was roasty caramel, firm bananas, sweet bready yeasty elements. The flavor followed, a tad on the sticky side, some hoppy elements in the beginning (floral works) that faded as it warmed. Chocolate works its way into the profile with roasty elements supporting it all. A fairly boring take on the style, but decent. Mouthfeel was a little undercarbonated, slightly sticky, kept honest only by the roastiness when all was said and done.

Goodgrief (2059) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Growler from Stewarts. Murky brown color, smallish head. Aroma was full of bubblegum. The flavor was loaded with fruity/perfumy sweetness that seemed almost out of place. Light clove notes over a wheat base. I don’t know, for some reason, I wasn’t really digging it.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Draught at pub. Seasonal. Hazy amber color. Yeasty, banana aroma. Flavor similar with wheat, some bubblegum, some matallic tastes a touch tart. Not enough depth to taste. Palate was medium. Decent.

Cloudy dark honey orange with thin tan head. Aroma is banana, bubblegum and caramel. Flavor is clove, wheat and light caramel. Palate was a bit thin.

Thanks to egajdzis for picking up the growler... Appears a cloudy haze of brown with a small white head and scattered lace. Smell is of bubblegum, wheat, caramel notes, with some chocolate undertones, and clove. Taste is of the same great aromas only toned down a notch. Mouthfeel is slightly thin and acidic but the full flavors comes through to make it a solid beer.

Eric’s growler. Cloudy chestnut body with a fading off-white head. Big banana esters plus cloves, chestnuts, and sour plums in the aroma. Flavor reminds me of sautéed bananas plus dark fruit and nuts. Balancing sweet malt and medium tartness. A solid dunkelweizen with good depth.
