Pours a deep golden color with a hint of orange. Half inch white head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin swirl of milky foam on top. Very little lacing.
Aroma is a blend of spice, clove and banana with a bready character. Very nice aroma. Remindes me a little bit of banana bread.
Taste starts with a mix of malts and banana and floral flavors with the spice joining in the finish. Sweet and slightly sour at the same time.
Medium body with medium carbonation. Slightly dry on the palate.
Overall this is an enjoyable beer. I am not sure that I have had this style before, but I am enjoying it. Not a style that I would seek out all the time, but it's a nice change of pace. Give one a whirl!
