Pours a cloudy golden color with very nice lacing and very minimal head retention. Smells of banana and hay. Kind of like a trip to the farm. Tastes strongly of banana and malt. Not a bad beer and this is coming from a "non-fan" of Belgians.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pushing 13oz on the bottle. Poured into super bulbous glass that holds it nicely. Glazed donut color, cloudy yellow/hay. Ample lacing, thin on glass, sticky and white. Aroma of sweet fruits, cotton, mineral grains, crystal malts, grass, orange spice. Taste of frontal sweet fruit, orange havans, bitter ramblings. Fruit, spice, and hops load this one on the fun side, the bitters bring it back to revelation. Superb drinker, just asks for more. Looks like it should be a dark ale in the bottle that it is in.

Reminds me of a good Bavarian Hefeweizen with lightly fruity aromas and flavor. Peach mango and white wine grapes. Some yeasty spices wrapped this up.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy dark yellow color with fizzy and foamy off white head that reduces down to a ring around the edge. Smells of tropical fruits and clove spices. Tastes of bananas and spices with some breaded malts mixed in too. Well carbonated with some bite when finishing. Really enjoyed this RR take on a Belgian Strong Dark Ale!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Golden honeycomb color at full opacity with a soft, bright white creamy foam on top. Very fine bubbles. Huge Belgian yeast aroma. Banana, clove, bubblegum, white pepper, moderate phenolic heat, tart pear, a bit of hay. Lots of overripe banana in the flavor, followed up quickly with coriander, clove, mint, orange zest, & white pepper. Very bready with a thick cheesy & musty funk character that sustains from start to finish without getting in the way. Finish of spicy yeast, baked bread, lemon zest, & cellar floor. Dry body. Pretty well done; not the biggest fan of the style but this was enjoyable.
