3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Poured cloudy amber/orange with a thick frothy white head. Left sheets of lacing. Seemed to take on more of a bright orange glow as it warmed. Aroma of banana Belgian yeast, bread/cookie malts, spices and alcohol. Spicy-sweet malt flavor with banana, citrus and apple. Finishes a bit musty with some trailing spiciness. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation. No real complaints here.
