Golden color with high carbonation to keep a lasting but thin head. Smells of banana and spicy hop. The taste is slightly sticky with a tastes of medicine, clove, banana, and typical Belgian horsehair flavor. Overall a good beer.

Gold with a minimal head. Small bead carb. Aroma is sweet and spicey. First tastes are peppery with mild alcohol warmth. Followed up with cinnamon, honey. Some yeastiness, mild banana and caramel. Crisp, but very dull with hops. A quality, easy to find, well rounded beer.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2009 had on tap which was slightly better than my previous experience with the bottled version. This is full-flavored, yet still nice and light and makes for a refreshing treat. cloudy with strong yeast aroma. sweet taste with hints of straw and barley. pleasant finish with mild bitterness. definitely more fruit (citrus, pear, pineapple) when drinking on tap
