I bought a sixer of this and I hope it's fantastic.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle complete with roosters, poured into 12 oz fiesta ware glass.

Appearance (4) : White, foamy, fluffy four finger head that seems to linger forever. Transparent mango-honey colored body. Rings of lacing, I'm counting 4. Head stays like a foamy lake. I love the look of this beer.

Smell (4.5) : Fresh orange spice, sugared peach, cinnamon, brown sugar, candied banana, slight musty grain, and a hint of lovely girly notes from the hops. Beautiful.

Taste (4) : A slight funk is followed by some rough cinnamon, apples, a hit of strong booze (ick), but - a finish that is utterly to die for. Banana. Banana. Banana!!!! If anything was killing this beer a little it would be the strong alcohol hit. It detracts from the fruit bliss of this beer and adds a slight astringency to it. The rest of the beer is fantastic.

Mouthfeel (4) : The finish is grand. The mouthfeel is creamy, wet, and smooth. Ends semi-dry.

Overall (4.11) : I am not upset I purchased a six pack of this. I do not like it *quite* as much as Abbey, due to the strong alcohol astringency. It does not ruin the whole beer, however, and I can overlook that small feat to enjoy a beer that is utterly yummy.

Light fruity aroma. Smooth body with medium malts, light wheat, and hints of spice.
