2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Copper Hog, Bellingham, WA
Hazy golden color. Chewing gum aroma. Typical American interpretation of Belgian styles; it’s sweet, with a lot of banana (really???), and boozy finish. Off the mark, for me, undrinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a Lightly hazy yellow with a big head and good lacing!
The aroma is huge & sweet with a great floral character, some spice & raw malt. It’s got a little honey & a little wet limestone.
The flavor is spicy with plenty of fruitiness, most particularly banana. Thankfully it’s not cloying, but it is sweet with a mildly dry finish. The styrian hops are well employed to add an herbal bitterness and a general leafy character.
