This beer is a little thin with a poperri like flavor, finishes with a wild yeast taste

Tap. Amber color with minimal head. Serving was in an opaque plastic cup which doesn't lend itself well to lacing. Grassy Belgian yeast nose. Taste was coriander dominant with some orange rind. Ok malt but this seemed incomplete.

Draft. Amber color, scant head. Aroma of slightly sour caramel. Taste starts sweet and boozy, then an odd sour/bitter combo. Mediocre

5/27/09 notes: on tap at DuClaw Fellís Point. Aroma is the most banana-ey I have ever sniffed in a beer. There is also some clove and nutmeg that deepen the smell. Flavor is also banana-like sweetness, a bold blend that flirts with becoming cloying, but in my opinion manages to stay on the right side of the line. The finish lingers impressively, imparting close to no alcohol bitterness.

Its got a lot of nice spice--very present banana and cloves. Sweet body, but the problem is the sweetness is a bit unbalanced, and lasts to long. Its annoying after a while, but I appreciate the spices.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Bowie location. A hazy amber/mahogany with a small tan head by the time it got to my table. The aroma is of ripe bananas, caramel, cloves, cinnamon, and hints of vanilla extract. Medium-bodied. Ample maltiness with lots of caramel, cinnamon, and vanilla extract upfront. A wheaty end with ripe bananas and cloves. Some warming alcohol is present. Excellent balance throughout. Very nice.
