South Carolina

4.3/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a deep straw golden color topped off with an exquisitely large ivory head. The bold head makes an equally brisk disappearance, so enjoy the bubbles while they last. However, even with the absence of the head, there is an excellent liquor style lacing.

S: Fruity banana aromas burst through with an almost sweet, tarty backing. Comparative to a the smell of a Belgian, sour combination which produces an almost floral essence.

T: The tartness is simply an aspect of the smell because the taste is full of fruity banana-like flavor. The sweet fruity zest is combined extraordinarily well with a subtle hop bitterness.

M: This is where that audacious head materializes once again. Excellent carbonation provides an explosion of flavor throughout the entire palate. The explosion is followed by a pleasant dryness that does not necessarily leaving one craving another sip. Rather it allows the flavors to truly be appreciated.

O: An astounding brew that does exceptionally well at staying true to the style. A must try for any beer enthusiast.
