3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
informative label with bottling date and little flavour-table on it, I like that. aromas of dried bananas with a metallic edge to it, also a slight sulphuric note, then milky toffees and a bubblegum-clove track as well. Taste brings up a lot of soft, milky caramel again, with the bananas, phenols and some alcohol heat. Finishes with a clovelike bitterness tilting towards burnt plastic. Surely a nice beer but not my style.

Bottle from Waitrose.
Pours yellow-orange single finger white head, slightly cloudy. Aroma of floral hops, orange, lemon, wheat. Taste of initial wheat, some banana, orange, lemon, then malts, caramel, toffee, little kick from the alcohol. Floral hops throughout, light spices too, toasted malts and a sugary sweetness. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
OK for a Belgium. Deep golden color and a little hazy. The yeast is light and not as much flavor as expected. Bottle
