On Tap at the Boise BP Hazy medium brown with a litt orange highlights. Classic malty slightly fruity and spice aroma. Flavor was a bit subdued, but the typical banana and sweet holiday spice are here. medium body and overall seemed a bit light. Maybe was expecting more along the line of a "dopple-" Very tasty. I forget how much I like this style and the yeast that is typically used.
