Notes / Commercial Description:

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #46 (Nov 2010):

A swirl of the last splash of beer and in goes the yeast; cloudy pale amber with two fingers of head that stay. Banana taffy and faint powdered clove rest on a bready, malty nose. Smooth, with a slickness on the medium body--the palate was hoping for more crispness. Maltiness flexes right away with a straight bready flavor, and nuttiness from the yeast compliments this. Fruitiness and spice easily balance. Toward the finish, the brew goes a little lemony and earthy. Throw this one into a blind tasting and you'd never know it was American brewed. A gem from the Southwest.

Aroma: Pear, banana, wheat, clove.

Taste: Pear, bubblegum, clove, wheat, and banana.

Overall, a little below average. Rather watery and lacking carbonation. Consumed at Posh restaurant as a pre-dinner delight. It gets a 74/100.
