12 oz can. Pours clear golden orange with a small white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.

The aroma is sweet bready banana malts.

The flavor is sweet sugary malts and bananas with a little grassy bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, I didn't care for it - way too much sweet banana.

Nanner, nanner, nanner... A bananna smoothie does taste this fruity. Pours slightly opaque with a head that disappears as fast as a freshman coed's bra. Strong bananna taste overpowerers everything else. No bite. Marginal aroma. That same coed mentioned before would probably love it. Sorry boys, it's just not my type of beer. Glad I ordered a "shorty."

Poured a dark yellow, little head, lots of yeast sediment. Not much on the nose besides yeast. Pretty pale and yeasty on the first sip. Pretty dry and not much complexity or flavors. A small hint of toasted nuts, but that is really about it... It was just okay. Not their best and surprising because everything else I have tried from them has been pretty spot on.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: pours a 1" white head that recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Color is a cloudy golden with plenty of carbonation streaming.
Aroma: coriander is dominate, along with yeasty bread dough
Mouthfeel: light and a little slick. Warming alcohol in the swallow.
Flavor: coriander, sweetness from the malt and added sugar, quite bready sort of akin to a sweetroll, some mild hop in the finish.
Overall: very good, lacks a little bit in balance (too sweet).

Pour nicely with plenty of head retention. Notes of the Belgian yeast right up front which also dominated the up front flavors. Not a lot going on in the middle of the flavor profile, but some residual from the Belgian flavors. A little bit of late hop bitters, but not overpowering.

I would classify this a lot more on the Belgian side than on the Pale Ale side. Almost tsted like a hopped saison.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a soapy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of light fruits and coriander.

Tastes of a fruity character along with some spicy notes and sweet malts. Fruity notes lead off with banana and apple. This gives way to a bit of coriander and peppery spice. Doughy malts come through along with some syrupy sweetness. Finishes with a bit of bready yeast.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slick amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is solid, but it doesn't quite stand up with other Belgian pales.
