Pours a clear pale yellow color with lots of carbonation and a good soapy white head.

Aromas are quite yeast forward initially. Light stone fruits, sweet pale malt, and Belgian yeast spice notes. Alcohol notes become slightly apparent as it warms.

The tastes are quite simple yet very nice; highlighted by the usual Belgian yeast flavors; some mild light fruits emerge as it warms. Light banana, apricot, peppery clove, also a dryness that I found pleasing. Light alcohol notes emerge as it warms but more of a warming quality than anything harsh or biting.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and finishes very crisp and dry. Carbonation is high and quite bubbly, but that is to be expected and fits for the style.

Overall there is nothing mind-blowing about this beer but it is quite drinkable, goes down very easy, even with the considerable alcohol content. A nice beer for entry level craft beer aficionados. Quite distinct and memorable for me as this was one of the first Belgian ales I ever sampled and got me into my journey into craft beer.

A: Hazy yellow color and big fluffy head
S: Very fruity with a faint whiff of hops
Taste: Very fruity and citrusy. Some fruits that I could detect are bananas, strawberries, and apples. Has a very mild hop charater too. It a very sweet beer, but has a very complex flavor profile.
M: Moderate carbonation with an amazing aftertaste.
O: This very good stuff, I love it.

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

A- Very light, brownish yellow, hazy, with a thick white head that remains throughout the beer

S- The usual suspects are there. Sweet smell. Banana bread, and other fruits, raisins, figs, with a little bit of a citrusy hoppy smell to it as well

T- Very sweet. Overly ripe banana greet you, and stay with you. There are some other fruity/bubble gummy tastes that go along with it. Leaves a bit of a citrus finish, but not overpowering. Taste the alcohol for sure.

M- Extremely carbonated, and leaves a sweet film in your mouth

O- I'll give it a 3.5, because I think they achieved what they were trying to do, but I was overall not a fan.
