Darkish amber pour, opaque from the cloudiness. Adequate banana and clove nose, but tartish fruitiness, a bit like in the alt once again lays in the background. I can’t say it really disturbs in the nose, but in mouth, the thinned body obviously suffers from this phenomenon. I’m afraid they just are not at their best when playing with dark malts.
