(Newport Microbrew Festival) This is a strong malty flavored Belgian with the right amount of infection (which is good). A great fruity flavor with a well balanced feel. Strong and a good winter beer.

Very nice nose of burnt bananas, bread crust and sweet banana pudding. Sweet up front turning to salty and dry on the back - good hearty dry texture in the finish, with some light biting hops. Mellow yeast flavor present as well. Very good stuff.
