Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate yeast, malt and spice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade. Aroma of Belgian yeast, slight banana, and even slighter lager funk. Flavor is some white pepper, banana, and light bittering hops. Always an excellent palate from Daniel Carey's brews, even though they have odd slants for some genres. Still, a very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Steasy66 for the trade!
Pours a clear dark yellow under one of those soapy heads that leaves nice lace.
The aroma is a mix of fruit, herbs and lemon rind.
The flavor is lightly sweet and fruity with a very soft herbal dryness in the finish. Lively and spritzy.

Bottle thanks to phaleslu, NOT failslu. Thanks! Aroma of toasted toasted dough, wet grass, herbs. Taste is soft bitter herbal grass, rustic dough. High carbonation. More doughy than expected, but works. Nice beer.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: alcohol, maybe some banana, barley, actually somewhat muted; Appearance: a ever so slightly hazy golden, bordering on orange, after the pour, the slightest ring of carbonation settles on the edges by the glass, good bubble action after the pour; Taste: some clove, some banana cream, something doughy, some citrus rind, quite complex, extremely tasty; Palate: something sweet lingers, decent bitter that lingers, good nose feel in the carbonation; Overall: I really like this beer, I can’t say exactly why, but I’m guessing its mostly because it tastes awesome and without any one flavor/aspect dominating, I’m not an expert taster by any means, but I swear that this beer is one of the more complex I’ve had in a while, I’d definately recommend it
