Tastes of caramel malt and Belgian yeast. Pretty generic for the style, but still good.

Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et stort skumhoved. Duft af gærestere banan, og maltsødme. Hvinende sød men med et fint humlebid der gør det ikke tager over. Ok øl.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear ruby red color with a brief tan head. Aroma is nice - yeast, sweetness, raisins, clover (?), malt. Taste is of yeast, malt and a touch of sourness. Finish is fairly clean, a little of the yeast sticks around. Excellent!!!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yeast and sweetness in the aroma. Malty flavor of yeast and butterscotch. A according to me, maybe not for good bitterness, but it remains a weak moment. Not impressive beer anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Possibly my favorite offering from New Belgium. The aroma is nutty, smoky, fruit. Pours an amber/red brown color, with medium thick, frothy tan head. Taste is surprisingly rich, with bananas, nuttiness, plum and smokiness coming through. Palate is sticky without cloying. A regular selection of mine at the mix and match beer cooler at the store.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mellow Mushroom-Gatlinburg, on tap, Tulip Glass. Nice thick head. Dark Amber color. Spicy and sweet, hints of nutmeg and banana. Good initial body with low carbonation and an alcohol finish. Overall a great beer. Slight alcohol finish detracts from its overall experience.
