Light brown pour into a tulip glass, with an off-white fluffy creamy head.

Banana taffy hits the nose first, plus booze and rye bread.

Not very complex in the mouth. Caramel malt, honey, and fruit-cake sweetness. Some indeterminate spice. Stone fruit presence, dried fruit, prune, date. Alcohol wafts on the breath in a lilting brightness, keeping things refreshing.

Medium-full bodied, creaminess, cut by med-high carbonation. Lovely mouthfeel. Serious body but still crisp.

It doesn't measure up to Gulden Draak or La Terrible or Brasserie des Rocs. But at $12 a six pack, it's perfectly serviceable, even pleasurable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Fairly translucent orange-tinted chestnut brown in color. Forms a decent sized tannish colored head, but it quickly reduces to nothing but a thin ring around the edge. No lacing.

S: The aroma is sweet and malty, with hints of vanilla, fruits, and spice.

T: Wow. This is a seriously sweet beer, almost candy sweet. Actually, not almost - this beer IS candy sweet. Lots of sweet malts, with malty fruits, berries, and a flavor reminiscent of Fruit Loops. There is a little citrus in the mix as well, but it's not a hoppy citrus flavor. Rather it tastes like orange flavored Gatorade or that cheap orange juice from concentrate. Quick finish.

M: Medium in body, but just feels thin for the style. Lower carbonation and a very mild bitterness.

O: There just seems to be something off about this beer. It's certainly drinkable and it's not that's its a bad beer - it's not - it's just that something seems out of place. I'll admit I don't care for sweetness much and this is a very sweet beer. Got through the bottle just fine, but couldn't see having another.
