4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Bottle. Poured a cloudy medium yellowish orange with a very large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that had great longevity and excellent lacing.
The aroma was moderately heavy of grain malts, an earthy yeast and flowery hops with nice notes of citrus, banana and a bit of spice (coriander I believe).
It tasted kind of sweet with a hint of citrus at first and then became a bit bitter and quite yeasty with a mild alcohol finish leaving a nice bold flavor lingering on the taste buds for a long while.
Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body and had a dry texture with a nice prickly carbonation.
Overall a great Strong Ale with a medley of components coming together for one really fantastic tasting brew which does a nice job of concealing the high alcohol content.

BOTTLE. Cloudy straw to brown pour with zero head, looked like a cider.. Funky BO nose, yeastie, banana wheat mixture.. Generic wheat style flavour?? I got honey, banana, some sweetness almost like custard? ABV is hidden extremely well, the taste outshines all other aspects.. Sourced AB

Poured a golden, pale, hazy color with 3-to-4 fingers of off-white, frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Thick, layered, foamy, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.38)
Smelled pear, apple, kiwi, tropical, banana, faint Belgian peppery spices, green grapes and slightly spoiled fruits. (Smell - 4.25)
Tasted similar to the nose with more booziness, almost reminding me of a Dubbel or a Tripel. Got pear, honey, apple, green grapes, Belgian peppery spices, Citra zest, some booziness and banana. (Taste - 4.25)
Light body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Lively carbonation. Longer finish. (Feel - 4.25)
This was a really good beer. Seems a bit long to drink this, even though I only have had it for a month, but good nonetheless. (Overall - 4.25)
