2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ brewpub. Hazy yellow. Aroma of mashed, sweet overripe bananas. Flavors are spicy with white pepper, coriander, clove but overall too yeasty, sweet, and uninspired.

Cloudy dull tan. Not getting much nose. Sweet and alcoholic, with a slight banana and some vaguely raisiny tartness. Good balance, even if most of the positive characteristics are underdeveloped. Really lacks style, just kind of thuds on the palate.
