Dark amber color, creamy beige head, lace. Fruity aroma (banana). Quite fruity ale - a bit banana and caramel in the flavor, some yeasty notes. Decently hoppy aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Sweet citrus aroma, yeast and herbal in the back. Amber/copper color, beige head with large bubbles in the foam, very nice lace. Light sweet, malty, smoke, spices, light sour. Not bad but a chemical herb bitterness that I disliked a lot. Dry and warming. Also the smokiness in a spicy Belgian Ale is not a good combination.
