3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Flying Saucer in San Antonio. Aroma is banana, wheat bread and clove. Taste is very similar to a Belgian. Actually, it tastes like a cross between a Belgian and a dopplebock. Yum! Watch out...it will sneak up on you as it doesn’t taste AT ALL like it’s 8% ABV! VERY easy to drink and very dangerous!

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is Beligian yeast and spice. Pours a very cloudy unfiltered dark amber with a mostly diminishing off white head and spotty lacing. The taste is much like the nose. Overall mildly sweet. Hints of spice and banana. Medium body soft carbonation. Overall, not very pretty, but very enjoyable. I would drink again.

Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. This beer is a murky ruddy amber color with a medium creamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Bananas and toasted malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of banana, caramel malt and a bit of chocolate. The finish is sweet with a banana aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pours hazy brown topped by a dense tan head. Possibly the most accurate commercial description I’ve ever seen -- spicy and fruity with a dark, rich roasty malt character nails it exactly.

How many times can I hit the holy grail in 1 night? Drought at ginger man fort worth. Poured a brown hazy color with a light tan head. Incredible taste of clove, banana, and fruity amazingness. Not just 1 of the best beers I’ve had in this style, but 1 of the best beers I’ve ever had period. Must try brew. Peace, TJ
