  • Pours cloudy with some floaties. On top is an inch of white foam that has, at best, average retention. Lacing sheets but slides back to liquid level.

    Aroma has Belgian yeast, banana, sweet, pepper, and clove. That's really about it.

    Taste is similar but has the twist of more fruits: banana, pear, and fresh fruit. The sweetness is more balanced by the pepper and clove than hops. Belgian yeast lingers on the tongue as do some spices.

    Medium body with fair carbonation. Leaves a bit of stickiness on the lips and coats the mouth.

    Really liked this beer but loses a few notches because of the high sweetness that lingers. Good flavor and aroma with a sense of easy drinking since the beer comes across lighter than it really is. Enjoy!
