Great aroma, fruity and yeasty. A bit overpowering in its sweetness but tart like a grapefruit ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a nice foamy white head. Aromas of clove, Belgian yeast, metallic, banana, and malt sweetness. Tastes of banana, yeast, sweet malts, a little clove and maybe a hint of pear. This was alright and has some nice flavors but seemed to be lacking something. Maybe not enough body for the abv.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear golden, thin white head lots of bubble and very decent lacing. Aroma is mostly fruity, some yeast and some clove. Taste is also fruity some spices, malty notes; but it is a bit weak definitely is the Belgian style but tamed. It is drinkable and with a crisp finish, refreshing.

I liked this because Iím not a big fan of the Belgian beers. Itís palate was weak but still had the underlying Belgian character. Easy to drink and a nice mild flavor. If you like strong Belgian ales skip this one.

Aroma is yeasty with hints of clove and banana. Pours hazy golden color with a decent head, but it fades quickly. Taste is malty with earthy undertones and also clove and banana flavors with a crisp, dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
