look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

Appearance: pours a 2" frothy cream colored head which slowly falls with some mild lacing. Color is a amber-orange, cloudy with sediment in suspension. Extreme amounts of champagne-like streaming carbonation.

Aroma: banana and coriander, caramel, Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied and slightly astringent. Finish is dry with a bit of lingering alcohol burn.

Flavor: sweet caramel and spices, raisins, a hint of pineapple, yeast rolls, strong earthy hop presence.

Overall: nicely done and a pleasant brew for sipping and contemplation.

Serving type: bottle
