Poured somewhat cloudy with a good inch of off-white foam from my usual vigorous pour. Retention was okay at best. Lacing, eh, none.
Aroma is big on fruits and spice. Quite nice ;) Some dark fruits with banana. Once of the main spices is clove.
Taste follows. A bit of sweetness up front then come the fruits and spice. Acrid could be mildly be attached to the flavor as I almost sense a touch of tart, but it might be me wishing I had another sour beer. Banana and clove are nicely mixed.
A medium body that might be a little zealous but the carbonation is minimal at best. A bit dry on the finish too.
A good drinking beer that might have a touch of unchecked sweetness at the end of the taste. Other than that a really nice and flavorful beer that is darn tasty. Enjoy!

15th Anniversary Ale. A medium-bodied amber-colored ale with a delightful wheaty flavor and a fruity, spicy finish.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
