Pours a hazy pale golden color with some yeast sediment visible. The head white and lively dissipating quickly like a soda leaving just a thin layer of foam resting on top. Very little lacing.
The aroma is very nice. Fruity Belgium yeast with spices and cloves with a hint of banana and a light floral hop.
The taste is very similar to the aroma and is just as impressive. A bready yeast mixes with sweet spices and flavors of honey and cloves with a light citrus. The finish has a touch of sweet banana, spice and a nice floral hop, with a hint of berry lingering in the aftertaste.
Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy and smooth with a zesty spicy mouthfeel and a dry finish.
Overall, another very impressive beer from North Coast. The level of complexity is awesome, as new flavors seem to appear with every sip. Very drinkable, smooth and enjoyable. Try one!

A mixed culture of antique yeast strains that produce a floral nose, a full fruity flavor and a clean finish.
