Review from 1/2010 notes. Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a murky medium copper color, thick off white head with great retention and lacing. Pleasant banana, clove, caramel and wheat aroma. What a pleasant beer! Nice floral, almost Belgian spicy taste with a dry, slightly hopped and floral aftertaste. A medium pleasant malt in the middle. Refreshing and clean. A delightful beer. This is one of the worlds greatest breweries.

Pours hazy dark reddish-brown with a large, off-white head that dissipates quickly, but about a two finger length of head is retained before consumption. Plenty of tiny bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. There are strong notes of banana and clove in the nose. There is plenty of wheat malt in the aroma as well. There is mild sweetness and breadiness from the malt and the yeast expression comes through very well with the banana flavor and spiciness. The body is medium with abundant carbonation. The finish is smooth and dry. The drinkability is very high. This is an excellent and refreshing beer.
