look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours cloudy pale yellow with big foamy white head. Smell - wheat, lemon, some banana, sourness all the way through. A bit spicy, interesting aroma. Taste - cloves and spices upfront, followed by fruitiness (banana, orange, lemon, sour pear). Slightly bitter aftertaste. Very complex, very different. Nice level of carbonation, it's a bit off balance, but I think it benefits the beer with an uniquiness and character. Very rich. I wouldn't drink a lot of it, but it's still faitly drinkable.
Thanks TATURBO for this one!

I ended up with a bottle of this after a weekend road trip with my buddies. A friend of mine commented that he was going to clear out his fridge and bring some beer along for our weekend away. This was still left in my cooler once I got home and I drank it about a week later. The first thing I want to comment on is that I noticed that there hasn't been any reviews made on this beer in over a year. When was it last brewed? I realized that I was drinking a beer that is at least a year old. (no "bottled on" date on the bottle). I don't think this is a beer that is supposed to age so it may affect in a negative way what I think about it.

The first sip was almost medicinal or acidic in it's taste. I didn't like it. As I drank it though, I got a pleasant wheat taste and some fruits underneath this. It wasn't anything special but certainly went down easy enough once I got going.
