This beer pours medium brown in color, with a tinge of red. There is a very short head of thin off-white to light brown foam. The aroma is brassy, caramel malt, and fruity yeast, with some banana peel. The taste is very yeasty, with much banana and some cloves. If you like yeast ester beers, you should love this beer. Unfortunately for me, that is not my taste. This one failed for me, but Widmer Brothers does make some really good IPA variations.
