Transfer from BA review on 3-17-12 - Served in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a hazy yellow-orange color with a small yet compact white head. The head faded slowly giving way to some nice lacing. Smell – A nice potent aroma of yeast cake and banana are the biggest and are up front in the nose. There is a nice hoppy aroma of citrus that really comes into fruition. This is mixed with a nice spiced bready aroma. All the aromas combined to make one fantastic smell. Taste – The taste follows the nose rather nicely. There is a slightly fruity and sweeter bready flavor that meets the tongue. These tastes become more yeasty in flavor more toward the middle of the experience. Toward the end, the hop really comes into play and a nice citrus hop flavor takes the taste experience to the end and leaves a nice lingering flavor in the mouth. Mouthfeel – A nice creamy body with a medium to slightly higher carbonation level. The combo of the two, in this case, create an almost spongy feeling on the tongue. The feeling is warming and sticky with a nice “bouncy” turbidity. It is rather unique and actually very pleasant. Overall – This was quite a fantastic beer. It takes some of the best features of each beer style; the very nice yeasty/spicy/bready/creamy feel of a good Belgian and the great hop flavor of a nice IPA. Very well done!!
