4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy yellow, 3 fingers or so of head as it goes into a stein, but that’s what I wanted. Aromas of banana, bubblegum, and clove of course, but with a bit of dough behind it. Taste is doughy with some more banana. Little hints of dark fruit around the edges. Very very velvety texture. Pleasant. Nice.

Floral bouquet. Cloudy, yellow to golden color with quite a few bubbles. Thin head in a mug with minimal lacing. Very sweet taste with an almost overwhelming clove taste and notes of honey and flowers. Very smooth palate and one of my favorites.

Aroma of pears, bananas and wheat. Bananas, cashews, almonds, and hard fruits. Full bodied, and a fantastic example of a bock.

Hazy, yellow/gold appearance with a small white head and a fair amount of lacing. Wheat and yeasty esters prominent in the aroma. Flavors incorporate the wheat, spices and some soft fruit. Smooth, lush, slightly sweet aftertaste. Full-to-medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel leading to a long lasting finish.

It is one of my favourite beer. Gold and troubled colour and the carbonation is weak. The taste is sweet with banana and plum touch and the final sensation in the mouth is pleasant. I drank this beer in a nice place in Lausanne.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BBE: 30.06.16. Cellar temp. Pours a hazy gold-amber with small, tight, off-white head. High intensity nose, strong on over-ripe banana, sweet foam bananas and Belgian yeast, with some corned beef, vanilla, and rice pudding. A medium-strong banana sweetness dominates the taste buds, with only a gentle bitterness underneath. It’s full-bodied with a thick, creamy texture, medium carbonation and a sweet, chewy finish. A great beer in its own right that has a drinkability that belies its strength, it nevertheless lacks the complexity and depth of Aventinus.

Bottle. Pours pale yellow with a big, pure white, thick & creamy, quickly diminishing head that leaves some lace. Big flavors of clove, banana, yeast, dough and funkyness. Medium body, average carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Reminds me of a good sasion.
