   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Clear dark amber pour with light off-white head. Aroma is typical of an abbey - banana, clove and other spices. Taste builds on the banana clove theme with a hint of cinnamon and other spices along with a slight raisiny flavory. Perhaps just a touch too sweet and carbonated for my palate, but an interesting brew.

Poured a slightly dark, slightly translucent orange color with a small fluffy white head. Aroma was light roasted pepper, no heat, just some of the fruit with a touch of light sweet malts. Flavor was subtle heat, some pleasant pepper notes with a malty finish

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 2, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose is quite spicy, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and other indeterminate etc. Dark amber color, slick. Thin medicinal initial flavor, herbal and lightly sweet. All quite mild. Thin, smooth, slick body. Quite a mix of spices (maybe too many?), most of which cancel each other out rather than complementing the malt.

Not impressive at all. Should have gotten my first clue in the pour, virtually no carbonation, looks like a flat cola. Aroma is fruity, banana, citrus, etc. Taste is overwhelmingly spices, nutmeg, ginger with hints of citrus. Finish is slightly bitter. This would have been better off a baked good than a beer, not recommended.

I bit too spicy for my tastes. Lots of nutmeg and a hint of cinnamon. Body is mild with a mellow finish.

I like the idea of a Belgian-style Winter brew, and there are some components here that work very nicely. I enjoy the citrus, cardamom, cinnamon and banana. Not a lot from the other spices, though. Light body and mellow aroma. This could be awesome. Its okay.

tkealy8344 (8) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 11, 2015 does not count
Bottle from Hy Vee in Omaha, NE. I try to support the local brewers but this one I probably wont get again.... seemed very flat. Very high nutmeg, not much hop, tastes a little watered down... just OK. The beer I had before this was a solud IPA, so maybe that threw everything off...

Maltser85 (358) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Tastes fine and all, just nothing mind blowing. Banana, Clove and spices dominate this beer.

Suttree (6194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Draft at Suttrees. Clear copper, with a ring of foam. Smells herbal and a wee bit medicinal. Taste is sweet, with a bit of clove and nutmeg. Maybe a bit of cinnamon. Flavors are kinda muted, though. Not a spice bomb.

Draft at Suttrees courtesy of Suttree, thank you sir! Clear derp amber color. Caramel aroma. Taste is sweet cocoa.
