This was on tap at Fat Headís Portland, Oregon brewpub during the RBSG 2015. Pours a clear yellow to orange with a white head and light lacing. Nose of banana and clove. Medium plus body. Very smooth in the mouth. The flavor has the banana/clove combination and some citrus in the finish. Very drinkable. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Fat Heads PDX. Clear orange pour with a white head. Sweet caramel malts and fruit cocktail (in heavy syrup, of course). Pretty phenolic/clove heavy, too. Definitely sweet, but not really overdone. The spice kind of helps to mellow it out a bit. A whole lot of fruits and sweet malts.

On tap at Fat Headís, pours a clear golden with no head. Nose is sweet, with Belgian yeast, banana, and clove. Flavour is along the same lines, with banana, clove, Belgian yeast and candied sugar. Sweet but very flavourful and drinkable. Good for what it is.

On tap at the North Olmstead brewhouse. Aroma is bright and sweet. Classic banana and bubblegum. Flavor is much of the same. Big and bold and sweet. Tastes more like a Weizenbock than a Belgian Strong Ale, and thats fine by me. Delicious.

Draft at Dutchís. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, candi sugar, caramel, peppery spice, banana, bubblegum, yeast, I thought that the abv was well hidden, decent enough but definitely on the sweet side.
