look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Drinking 6.5 months after date on bottle

A - opaque, yet glowing yellow-gold honey color. Carbonated to my liking. Didn't form a huge head on pour but sustains a steady stream of fine bubbles.

S - unripe banana with grassy and honey due side notes. Not much spiciness in the aroma.

T - Strong banana characteristics. Bit of hotness/spiciness left on the back of tongue. Sweet but not overpowering.

M - thin bodied, leaves a bitter spiciness in aftertaste

Definitely will buy again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Acquired in a BIF from ufmj, thanks man!

A- Pours a hazy, light-honey colored body with a pretty thick, 2 finger head that reduces slowly and leaves some nice lacing and foam. Quite inviting.

S- Very fruity, unripe bananas, tart apples, lime and lemon juice, farmhouse funk, clove, spices.

T- Deep fruity, banana flavors dominate. Sweet apples, honey, cloves, cinnamon come through. Alcohol is well hidden .

M- Refreshing and smooth, this is a thirst quencher. Medium-high carbonation.

This is an awesome interpretation of a farmhouse ale. Very bold and flavorful while being drinkable and refreshing. Worth a try.
