  • Poured clear with a nice half glass of white and frothy foam. Retention was okay with some lacing that left it mark but not much.

    Aroma is spicy with a bit of clove while there are ample fruits. Sort of cross between light and dark: banana being the most prevalent.

    Taste isn't alcoholic like I expected. Some spice with it mainly coming late but not overpowering the fruits, which have a similar profile as the aroma. The fruits are there in one shape or another throughout.

    Beer is thick and heavy with a good kick of carbonation. A bit dry but also a little syrupy. I wouldn't say cloying but darn tootin' close.

    Another solid offering from Bell's. Sort of mad for only picking up one at the time as I had never heard of this beer. The price point makes this beer even better. In spite the alcohol a couple of these would be yummy. Enjoy!
