4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 Mild banana esters, belgian yeast and sour notes in the aroma. Maybe a bit of floral hops. Hazy brown, huge foamy white head that lasts forever. Very complex, sweet malt comes first, then the sourness and a mild hop bitterness finish, very dry. Medium bodied but extremely carbonated. Complex and interesting brew.
