Prufrockstar (1575) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2012
12 oz bottle to tulip. Appearance: frothy white head. Gold, slightly hazy. Inviting. Leaves patchy irregular lacing. Aroma: immediately hit with the scent of apple juice when opening the bottle. Otherwise, esters, floral, fruity, Belgian yeast (aside: I hope someday my tasting sense and vocab is developed well enough to be able to replace "Belgian yeast" with a more accurate, discerning deScription). Palate: medium body, lively carbonation , mouth-coating. Taste: moderate hop bitterness, light-moderate sweetness, moderate duration. Not as fruity as aroma suggested, nice pumpkin-pie spice. Overall: starts quite nicely with a pleasant, playful interplay of spice, fruit, sweet and bitter. By the end, it tastes too much like a Belgian-spiced apple cider for my liking. Seems like a solid beer, but not one I'm likely to seek out again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle to tulip. Pours gold with 1 finger white head. Smell is spice, fruit. Taste follows. Obviously to Belgium style. Can really taste the bubble gum and banana. Spicy finish. Silky body. Medium carb. Not my favorite but it was worth trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Banana and cloves are readily apparent in this Belgian Ale, but not overpowering. Pretty good overall.
