3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11/14/12. 12oz bottle from the ever gracious lukaduke! Hazy golden pour with a small khaki head. Light fruit, yeast, and pale malt in the aroma. There is a nice malty flavor, but not heavy in the least, with yeast, light funk, and light fruitiness. Light, and goes down easy. This is very flavorful for the weight and ABV and I could drink a ton of this in session style or in hot weather. Nice!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled August 29, 2013 (1.5 months old).
Appearance: The body is lightly hazed with a golden hue accompanied by a tall fluffy white head that persists for a bit, settling into a creamy and uneven coating.
Aroma: The aroma is very fragrant, lemon and pepper are matched by straw, hints of banana, a prominent floral presence and a touch of doughy wheat. Wow, very nice.
Taste: Wow, this is phenomenal. Mildly malty with a prominent sweetness amplified by light ripened banana as the base, balanced perfectly by overlying floral dryness with a light peppery presence. Underlying straw and a touch of lemon is noticed. The finish lingers for a bit of banana, lemon and pepper.
Palate: Full-bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This is a phenomenal beer, it drinks like a baby tripel. There is huge flavor and aroma here, all perfectly balanced and very drinkable. Boy this hits the spot.
