Received in trade from. Greatly enjoyed this beer. Been awhile since I had this style. Nice aroma but I canít identify - springtime. Apple? Gold honey pour with lots of lacing. Palate is med and soft. Taste is slight fruit and dries at end. Niiiiice

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, and banana. Taste is Belgian yeast, caramel, spice, and vanilla. Not sure of this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to Ramy! Pours a hazy orange copper with a thin white whispered of a head that likes to stay around. The first impression I get from the aroma is banana that moves to a hint at coconut. The taste is a vanilla, banana, bready concoction. Bready and peppery in the finish. Not bad.

Very earthy, thick, good, not too sweet. Would get again in winter. Bigger alcohol.

Liked this one a lot. Very strong banana nose and taste. Nice tripel spiciness. Etoh was a little over prevalent. Would be recommendation of choice for river horse beers Iíve tried so far. Beer was a lot more affirmative than their other beers - bolder flavor profile.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Spicy yeasty aroma with some sweet notes, too. Spicy, cloves, yeast, and some sweet sugars and malts, too. A nice bite of yeast on the finish. Pretty decent beer. Doesnít feel 10%. One of my favorite strong beers to buy in bulk.

I was actually upset by this beer. Now, Iím a huge fan of Belgian style, but the wheat feature in this brew honestly made me want to vomit. I donít mean to say that itís not great, itís just not my style. I donít drink wheat beers. But this brew masquerading as a delicious dark beer tricked me. Iíve actually even dumped a few of them.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is spices, bubblegum and a hint of banana. The flavor is spices, grainy malts, hints of citrus and fruit and a mildly tart finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: Thin creamy tan head with average retention with a murky pale orange and straw colored body.
Aroma: The aroma is strong of banana laffy taffy, smells artificial, with some sweet vanilla. Not a fan of this, itís too pungent.
Taste: This is overly sweet of vanilla, caramel and banana. Thereís a light floral/perfume hop profile, but itís shunned to the side from the sweetness.
Palate: Medium body with light carbonation.
Overall: I enjoyed this from the bottle at a bonfire but poured into a glass this is very different, surprisingly for the worst. Iím not a fan at all and donít even want to finish the 12 ounce bottle. Pass on this one until River Horse learns how to ferment their Belgians, hereís a hint donít ferment it hot as hell.
