3.93/5 rDev +1.8%
A: Pours a moderately clear dark golden yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowing rising from the bottom of the glass and some amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy dense foamy head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of banana with lighter aromas of clove and wheat
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat followed by stronger flavors of banana and light flavors of clove.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.
O: Stronger in bananas than other beers in the style but still a good representation of the style. Easy to drink and refreshing, pairs excellently with some sausages off the grill. Definitely one to get again.

3.63/5 rDev -6%
Poured from a 500mL bottle into a Unibroue tulip.
Slightly cloudy orange/brown liquid with an active off-white head that dissipates quickly to a fragile but lasting collar. Thin lacing, poor retention
Banana and allspice in the nose - heavier on the phenols as the fruit takes a back-seat.
Cocoa-dusted plantains on the palate with a hint of vanilla and coconut. Distinctive yeast character is offset by the clean malty base and a brief but moderate bitterness. Medium-finish is dried out by the perception of further peppercorn and clove notes.
Prickly yet flaccid mouth-feel.
A good, quietly unique variation on the standard weizen.
