3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy brown color, topped with a decent off-white frothy head. Aroma is malty with caramel, some yeasty notes and spices. Taste is sweet at the start and quite malty, some yeasty notes and alcohol in the body, but not too bad. Not a bad one, passable and quite strong feel to it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Served in a tulip glass cool, not cold, from a 750ml bottle. Definitely a spicy/fruity, sweet aroma. I cannot discern any banana, as other reviewers have noted, There’s an unusual hoppy note that I recognize from other Belgians. A repeat purchase!
