I got to taste this beer while at the Sam Adams Boston Brewery tour. They said that this was an experimental batch and they wanted everyone to rate the beer to see if they would continue to brew it. I might not have the name exactly right but this is what i remember.

Served in a 6oz test tube glass ... LOL... it poured yellow orange with lots of haze and decent head.

smelled like wheat malt and yeast with a mild hop note but really drained out by the yeast

taste was very good. rich malt flavor with the banana flavour of yeast was done quite well. Little hop features but enough to balance it out and add a slight citrus flavor.

mouth feel was good. full bodied with a thick feel to it.

overall i really liked this beer.... but it seemed like i was the only one who did... LOL oh well maybe i was just really excited to get to try a one and only batch by Sam Adams. I would definitely buy it if they mass produce!!
