I'm not an expert in Belgian Style ale's but this reminds me a lot of a hefeweizen that's been skunked, has WAY too much banana or was otherwise mis-handled. However, if you remove the banana aspects by switching yeasts to a more standard ale yeast I think it would be a great Belgian. It's on the malty side, but with a balanced hop presence. If you like banana you'll love this one, it's just not for me. Won't finish the 6 pack. It's going on my "i need to offer a beer to someone to be polite but I really dont know if you're worth a good beer so have one of these" shelves in the beer fridge right next to the Bud Light Wheat.
