While I may not have had this under optimal conditions (I'm not positive it wasn't sitting in a too-hot car before being delivered to me), I was not entirely impressed. The rolling bubbles seemed to suggest it was too carbonated...it helped cloud the beer on opening, and lent a message that I remember from the one brew I did that seemed to have been infected with a wild yeast: the flavor pitched too much toward fruit. In this case it wasn't entirely unpleasant, more like banana, but that isn't one of my favorite hints. I was expecting maybe a little more malt in my yeast--and perhaps more in the scent as well. Hops were almost absent. The best part was definitely the mouth where even the volume of carbonation didn't seem harsh--as it often can when there is too much. Just slightly sticky with sweetness, and full. For 7+ABV it was gentle, and I have no doubt the quality was there if not the flavor i prefer. I won't be going out of my way to bring this home, but I wouldn't refuse one.
