1/15/11. On tap at the brewery in a snifter. Very cloudy yellow pour with a skim of off-white head that’s gone fast. The aroma is all banana with a dose of spice and a hint of licorice. Creamy banana flavors laced with spice and licorice and a subtle hint of some sort of astringency. Not bad!

Poured up on tap at Cigar City with opaque yet pure gold body and modest size bright white head. The aroma is full up sweet estery banana and cloves (like a 55 gallon drum of ripe bananas) followed by a mix of apples, apricot and pear as well as an unmistakable yeastiness. The taste has milder banana notes than the nose and mixing with clove spice running into various cooking spice notes that I can’t put my finger on. Between the various spices and banana are both an interesting funky moldy fruitiness and a bit of black pepper. Notes of funk and pear like fruitiness grow into the finish with mild yet growing tartness that dries this thing out a bit.

Draught at the brewpub, on January 21, 2011
Hazy golden color, white head. Sweet at first, then turns spicy and fruity mango with some bubble gum, some banana esters. Bitter and banana aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, dry bitterness that gets mixed with the spices. Banana ester and bubble gum scent.
Don’t let it heat up though.

Pression @ CCB. Une saison inspirée par les régions asiatiques. Ce qui est certain est que cette dernière utilise des algues asiatiques ainsi que une demi douzaine d’épices de ces contrées. De mon avis personnel, certaines me font penser à la cannelle, graines de moutarde, cardamone/turmeric, poivre ... mais bien sur je peux me tromper. Les algues donnent à la bière un côté marin, pour ceux qui ont déjà pu goûter à des salades d’algues on y note un petit côté de mer salé qui n’est pas du tout trop prononcé. Le tout garde aussi cet aspect de saison. Effervescente au palais, la bière a une dimension intéressante allant à la fois vers le amer de citron et les fruits asiatiques.

Pours and electric yellow. Nose is heavy banana and 5 spice, bread and grain. Some spices. Flavor is mild citrus, mild spice, yeast and grains. Super drinkable. This was brewed with seaweed, which doesn’t shine through and I’m pretty glad it didn’t.
