JStax (5908) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Draft pour at the Nashville Airport. The beer is a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has a big banana ester presence. Creamy vanilla and spice comes through in the taste. Spicy and sweet. Medium body and medium carbonation. Spritzy mouthfeel. Really good overall.

Hazy yellow pour with white head. Aroma is banana and yeasty. Taste follows nose, but not up to the nose. Pretty good.

notalush (5818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle - pour looks good - turbid orange - texture in the mouth has a nice froth to it - flavor is kind of sweet, with a dull yeastiness to it, lacking a lot of the esters and phenols I look for in the style, although this is slight pepper and very faint hints of clove - mostly what I taste is sweetness, wheat, and yeastiness - its alright, though.

onceblind (8687) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Hazy deep golden with no head, even when poured with vigor. Interesting nose thats obviously wheat centric but has an interesting black pepper note to it. Crisp flavor with some doughy yeast, a crisp German blonde ale dryness, a little pepper and clove. Clean and straightforward.

jbruner (4453) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Pours a hazy yellow with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma and taste of mild wheat and more American esters to me than German. Eh, not that exciting and perhaps the wrong yeast.

whiskeyrocks (90) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2016
Light golden color. Strong banana and yeast flavor. Tastes a bit watery. Not very impressive.

chucklemation (1545) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Pours a hazy bright yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is banana, clove, spices, pepper, and bubblegum. Flavor is bubblegum and banana. Tastes sweet. Has a medium body. Pretty good stuff.
