Clear copper gold with a dense one-finger head and very nice lace. Rich Belgian yeast aroma with graham cracker, banana, pepper, lemon and bandaids. Taste is mostly sweetness and alcohol, with citrus, nuts, and a touch of oatmeal. Medium body, lively carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a lingering sense of alcohol in the finish.

From a 22 oz bottle. Poured into a Great Lakes tulip glass
Pours gold with modest head and lace. Aroma of alcohol, sweet malts and some kitchen cleanser esters. Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of banana, alcohol, candy cane, bubble gum, slight pepper, clove and liquorice. Overall a bit strong in alcohol in the nose and taste but tasty in the malts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden copper color that is clean. Aroma is fruity and sweet at the same time. The sweet smells like light caramel mixed with a fruit cocktail. Taste is clean and crisp. Complex flavors of apricots, brown sugar and peaches. The alcohol content comes through in the aftertaste but it dissipates quickly. A well thought out balanced beer.
