3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Grumpy Troll brewpub in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some Belgian yeast, a touch of bubble gum, cloves and very light banana. Taste has more spice than aroma, some Trappist old cellar yeast flavors with some clove and bubble gum. Finish is semi-dry with golden grain aftertaste followed by a clove and yeast aftertaste. Some alcohol warmth.
