3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy goldenrod color, with a perfect head. Aroma is mostly clove and malt, some yeast. Flavor is a spicy clove kick at the beginning, with a great sweet malt finish. Not as sour as other Belgians I’ve had, and I don’t miss it. Palate is effervescent, very drinkable. Overall this is a great Belgian ale.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Rating from 2009: hellgelbe und leicht trübe Farbe, toll aromatischer Vanille-Banane-Geruch. Reife gelbe Früchte. Der Antrunk ist eher neutral, keine Spur von dem tollen Geruch. Zum Hauptteil bleibt das Bier neutral, nicht wässrig sondern vollmundig-neutral, leicht süßlich. Keine Spur vom deutschen und englischen Hopfen. Die Herbe ist erst im Nachgeschmack ganz leicht spürbar, aber auch sehr unaromatisch.
--> Kaum Nachgeschmack, neutrales Mundgefühl! Sehr sehr enttäuschend!

Solid Belgium style beer. I get ripe stone fruit and bready yeast in nose. More of the same on palate along with some clove and banana.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
New Glarus just keeps pumping out solid brew after solid brew. That being said this was not outstanding, but just really well made. No hiding behind abv here. Golden pour with nice white lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, grains, floral, grassy. Taste is similar with medium sweet. Nice dry finish. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle pours a cloudy golden color with decent white head and good lacing. Aroma is full of bananans, cloves, and ginger. Taste is sweet with banans dominating the flavor. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. I was surprised to find such a good abbey ale from Wisconsin in a M&M six-pack shelf. This one is definitely worth revisiting.
