Picked up a six of this tonight - not my first time. Poured into a goblet very much resembling the ones on the packaging. Just under an inch of head, on the first pour; majestic inch and a half on the second with good retention. It is a rusty brown clarified ale. Huge banana, spice, light barnyard-funk on the nose. Tastes like bubblegum, banana, spice, and earthy. The mouthfeel is medium leaning towards the heavier end, carbonation is light but not wimpy, and a slight bitterness is present on the back end.
One of the beers that got me into craft, I must say, and still so enjoyable. I'd recommend this to anyone that likes dubbels and Belgian styles.
