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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden amber color with a sticky white head. Aromas of bubblegum, banana, seriously estery stuff, a bit of sugar, and some biscuity malts. Flavors were primarily sweet and estery, but with a very slight touch of woody earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel was perhaps my favorite part, being silky and sticky, it was very appropriate to the style. Clean finish, alcohol is present, but it’s an easy drinking bigger beer.
