I have had this brew since before Weyerbacher was ordered to remove it from based on a legal outcome. With this being said I really hope that they do re-release this brew again and from what I have read it sound like they will. This brew was poured into a chalice, had a nice dull golden color, somewhat cloudy with a nice sized white head that had great retention. The bubbles in the head where reminiscent of champagne and I think this is what lead to the minimal lacing. The aroma is nice, pale malt with a nice clove and slight banana scent ... some additional fruit aromas, green apple? Hops are there and mix very well. The malt flavor comes across first and then the hop presence sets in and seems to mix well with the carbonation as it hits the side and back of the tongue. Hopes have a nice bitterness and are much more pronounced here than in the nose. Flavors of clove and banana from the yeast are there and go very well with everything. Love to find out what hop(s) they have used in this one. Again this was a very good beer and I really hope and look forward to seeing it out in the market renamed in the future.

Appearance - Medium copper color with an off-white medium textured airy head with some lace remaining after the head dissipates.
Smell - Lightly soured banana like fruit aroma followed by light sweet alcohol and spicy resiny hops.
Taste - Sweet malt and lightly soured fruit followed by sweet alcohol with a spicy resiny hop finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium viscosity that is clean and light feeling with moderate carbonation, light bitterness, and a mild alcohol warmth as the beer goes down.
Overall - Well balanced with a light feel and very good flavor that gets better as the beer warms closer to stout serving temperature.
