Pours cloudy brown with medium white head. Nose is wheat, yeast, slightly off banana, clove. The flavor begins with musty wheat, segues to banana, finishes with clove. Nice full mouthfeel. There are barest hints of plum and olive as well. Nice peppery finish. Sticks to the tongue, and very heavy body. Leaves the peppery taste, along with clove cigarettes for an aftertaste. Excellent.

Pours a hazy dark brown with a large off-white head and lots of carbonation. Very yeasty, clove aroma with hints of wheat bread, citrus, banana, caramel, and plum. Delicous flavors that start sweet and finish spicy. There are all kinds of fruit flavors in the complex taste - raisin, banana, lemon, orange, prune, cherry. This beer is full-bodied and excellently balanced, with a lively carbonation presence. Very smooth going down and it’s not syrupy sweet, but rather crisp and refreshing.
