Drake (10850) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2010
12 ounce bottle opened 6/17/10. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized offwhite frothy head. Decent head retention and fair lacing. Aroma of banana, clove, spicy hops and a bit of a soapy note. The taste is bitter, leafy and spicy hops, banana, citrus and a faint bit of spiciness. Thin-medium bodied. I’m not really liking this as its a generic Belgian pale with a hop profile that I’m not digging at all. Decent overall though.
