Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin, white head. Aroma of cereal, bready yeast, grassy hops, toast, spicy hops, and earthy fruit. Flavor is very bready, grassy hops, toast biscuit, banana, apple chips, hay and light mineral notes to the finish. Medium body, slightly oily feel, light, but sharp carbonation. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy gold with white head, lots of yeast. Aroma is spicy yeast. Medium body, lots of sweet yeast flavor with a little spiciness, little bit of banana, and some citrus hops. Some alcohol taste also. Lots of grainy barley taste on the malt side. Nothing spectacular but it does a really good job of hiding the higher ABV, very drinkable and pretty good.

Sweat, banana, wheat. A bear that tastes like summertime at a single A ballpark, like grass stuck in your mower.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz Bottle, purchased at Warehouse Liquors - Duluth, MN. My first Iowa tick! Warm banana, spice, and cooked fruit aroma. Clean. Flavors are good. Light sweetness, good mineral profile, light clove and herb presence. Dry. A little on the rubbery side of the Belgian phenols for me, but this isn’t bad. Glad I got the chance to try it.
