750 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06- thanks again, Brad! Pours a cloudy orange-amber with plenty of bubbles that form an off-white ring. Aroma of caramel, banana, wheat, leaves, chocolate, clove, and brown sugar. The flavor is the same, but earthier and leafier. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, dry, earthy mouthfeel. Didn’t do much for me.
