I found this beer to be a whole lot of fun. It is incredibly aromatic, and smelling it was a great pleasure. The palate does not disappoint either as it is full of flavor. This beer is expensive to be sure but at the same time I have not tasted anything like it. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured in pilsner glass from bomber. Aroma - not bad. Typical aroma of a belgian banana/soap. Appearance - light amber. Taste- avg mix between a pale ale and a belgian. Palate - not great. Overall - i know this is a poor review but I think it has aged too long. I had one before that I enjoyed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head that sticks around. Aroma is fairly subdued, with some flowery hops and a little lemon. The taste is initially le in zest, followed up by some spice and banana and a bit of light bitterness. The website says it’s an amalgam of biere de grade and IPA. Can see the biere de grade, but not much in the way of IPA. Still good though.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Golden color. Sweetish, perfumed and spicy aroma with pepper, tart fruitiness (cherry). Sweet spicy and tart flavor with clove, pepper, vanilla, some stingy alcohol. Some grassy hoppiness and bitterness in finish. Hop aroma and flavor is low, no feel of IPA here.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle on Route 8 in Pittsburgh. Has a hint of an IPA in it without the burn or the excess of hops. Very enjoyable and well worth a second or third.

Bottle, shared. Pours a hazy light golden color with a smallish white head. Nose is light with some hints of sour, banana, and spices in there. Taste is very slightly sweet, with the elements of the nose coming through. Feels very smooth.
