Poured into a tulip, the beer was gold in color. There was a thick, fluffy white head which lingered. The head was very sticky.

Spicy, banana aroma. Kind of fresh.

Some banana in the taste. Sweet and spicy. Earthy.

Dry, crisp. A pleasant beer.

Would likely drink this again.

Poured from the tap at the brewery on September 8th, 2012.

A very deep red/orange colour and an eggshell foamy head. The smell of sweet citrus, bananas, melon, and subtle vanilla. The taste had a nice spice to it with the citrus flavours, hops, and vanilla coming through in an extremely balanced taste. An amazing balanced between the three kind of hops and the vanilla beans.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

Dark, caramel-colored brew, relatively clear. Little head to speak of.

Huge, enormous Hefe-like banana notes in the aroma.

Banana flavor from the yeast actually translates to the flavor, along with caramel and brown sugar. There isn't really much else going on there, however.

Slight amount of alcohol burn, probably too much for a 7% ABV brew.

This beer was just slightly better than "OK" for me. It's not something I'd go out of my way to buy, but I wouldn't turn it down if offered.
