On tap at frontera ORD. Poured into goblet. Carmel color with half a finger of almond head that quickly dissipated but left solid lacing. Bananna, malt, yeast aromas. Up front spices, yeast, and funkier than I expected. Finishes with a little apricot sweetness.

Pours a hazy burnt orange with white head.

Nose has Belgian yeast notes and bananas and Apple.

Taste follows nose. Over carbonated for my tastes.

Overall a good beer.
