Bottled. Deep gold colored body with only a trace of a thin white head. The nose has a little funk and leather. There is also some apple. Hints of clove show up as a nice spice. This tastes a little leathery with some notes of orange peels. The finish is fairly spicy with clove. There is only a hint of salt in the finish. Overall, this is fairly dry and straight forward. Decent. ads135 (4933) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 15, 2013
This was terrible. I understand what they were trying to do with the Belgian yeast, but it was too much. The tasted infected. More medicine than that pleasant belgian funk. Barely choked this one down. jandd1983 (4550) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2013
Sampled at the Schlafly ROP 2013. It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of lemons, some dry yeasts, and some ripe rotting fruit. The taste was of lemons, dry Belgian malts, not hot despite a higher ABV. Very good. edgallow (4377) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2015
12 oz bottle pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast, grass and citrus. Taste is a little spice, banana, grain and citrus. IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 14, 2012
12 oz bottle from pepsiedcan. Nose is grassy hops, caramel, yeast, and hints of bubblegum and cloves. Lightly hazy urine yellow with a medium yellow tinged head. Flavor is lightly bitter, a bit of contrasting sweetness, and peppery spices.

Pours a hazy golden color with a nice big tight head with larger than normal bubbles. The aroma is plenty of bread yeast with some nice banana fruitiness and a bit of spice. The flavor follows but the banana is more defined and the spiciness is less so. There is some nice lemon zest and a mild balancing bitterness with a nice enough alcohol character.

Prominent banana nose with a more subtle flavor profile, suggestions of a good Belgian. Rich body, obviously benefiting from the abv, which offers a nice counterbalance in the effervescence and tingle. Interesting.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 12 oz stubby bottle left behind at my New Years party by a neighbor. The pour is mostly clear golden yellow, with a one inch white head that falls with no lacing. The aroma is straw, malt sweetness, and an herbal yeast Tripel nose. The taste is the herbal straw, round full sweet malt, more of the herbal, and light banana clove yeast. The palate is medium to light bodied, fairly low carbonation with the yeast notes lingering in the aftertaste. Alcohol is decently masked. beastiefan2k (4076) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Love the stubby 12oz bottle that I poured into a smaller Corsendonk goblet glass. Extra point for the cool bottle. The beer is unfiltered with sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Thus, the pour provides a cloudy golden body, cannot see through it but still radiates. Small head does not stick around for long. Aroma is moderate banana and pear esters with some sweet candy and mild dough from the yeast. A bit sweeter than I want it but still within my range of acceptability. I think I get a little bit of pilsner malt in the aroma particularly. Flavor is lower on the sweetness and esters and a bit higher on the doughiness with a little bit of bitterness at the end to round it off. Nice medium body, very drinkable. Sweet aftertaste. Very nice beer especially for the price. On the sweeter side and I would like a bit more carbonation. Underrated on RB. Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Shared with kristen, james and veronica. Clear golden pour. Kristen also REALLY liked this beer. Belgian candi sugar and lightly yeasty. A little alcohol on the nose. Not burning. Thought this was Blonde Fat Ale. Pretty good.
