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.

Taste is banana, vanilla, yogurt, and Belgian spices. The vanilla is soft but but adds a new wrinkle to this style that compliments it well. This is a one glass per sitting beer and one I would get if I wanted this style which I rarely seek out.

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.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter. Orange body. Big white head. Smells a little hoppy with some Belgian yeast. Lots of vanilla. Tastes malty. Sharp Belgian yeast that’s almost overpowering, but vanilla takes over and overwhelms the finish. Medium body. Interesting variation. I think I couldn’t drink a lot of this, but in small doses it’s ok.
