COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.
A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A bright, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

On tap at Bier Bistro. Perfect balance and mouth feel. Dark honey colour with a light lace. Pleasant bitterness that doesn’t dominate the beer. Some spiciness on the nose. Alcohol is well masked. Not exotic, but it’s easy to see why this is a classic. It’s a sure fire favourite of mine

Sweet aroma. Poured an amber-ish color with a strong tan head. Flavor carries bananas and candi-sugar, with some cinnamon and sugar notes.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Kirkas kullankeltainen olut paksulla, pitkään kestävällä kivasti pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu raikkaan sitruksisen hedelmäinen ja viljainen. Myös maku hedelmäinen, jollain lailla keveän pehmeä kokonaisuus, lievällä mausteisella jälkimaulla. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, kuivuu loppua kohti mausteisuuden myötä. Helppoa juotavaa ja ihan ok keskitason belgi.

Gold yellow and a bit cloudy beer with a strong aroma and taste of yeast and barley. Light, fresh and also somewhat fruity. Leaves a simple bitter yeast aftertaste. In my opinion not as complex as stated on their site.

expected flavour but a little watery and perhaps too carbonated? Not a repeat for Belgian Ales
