3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber and medium-bodied. Very foamy. Fruity and spicy aroma, with notes of banana. Highly spicy phenolic flavour, with a bit of alcohol, and a sweet, pungent taste, with medium bitterness. The finish has a note of something unknown that I do not appreciate. Overall, a good belgian strong ale. Very tasty.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pleasant, roasty aroma of banana, nuts, vanilla and alcohol. It looks just alright, but not too enticing, a bit lumpy. I’m sorry to say that but the taste and palate is crap. For a second I thought it might be expired, but it’s not. Vinegary. Boozy. Waaaaay too fizzy. Long sour finish. Hard and unpleasant to drink, imo. Bonus points for the naive label, at least.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light golden and greasy haze. Nice thin tight white bubbly head. Nose is sticky melon, ceramicy clove and tinny spice. Initial taste is a chalky sweetness and a quality boozey hum. Carbonation is firm and mouthfeel is taught and sticky. Finishes a bright fluffy marzipan buzz and lingers out and out clove spice.
