3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the brewpub in downtown Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale amber brew with a creamy white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of crystal, golden grain malt, a hint of wheat, cloves, a hint of bubblegum and banana. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of popcorn, cloves, Belgian yeast and some wheat. Finish is semi-dry with a yeast aftertaste and a mild bitterness that lingers after the finish. Definitely more clove than banana ester in the taste making this Belgian ale memorable.
