12oz bottle poured into a pint glass, then transferred to a brandy snifter. Date on the bottle says February 9th 2014.
A: Rich mahogany color. With a light tan two finger head that left a nice cap on top as well as ample lacing.
S: Banana is the dominate scent. Dark fruit prevail. sweet malts as well as bread and clove is also persistent. One of the best smelling beers ive tried.
T: Sweet candy malt. Banana and cloves Bubble gum aftertaste.
M: Nice creamy mouthfeel. In my opinion it could use a bit less carbonation and a little more body. Slight alcohol burn was noticeable as this warmed up.
O: This is one of the best beers ive had by New Belgium. I almost always have a few in the fridge. I find this to be a great beer for friends who may be new to craft beer, its got a solid ABV and is really delicious. I paired this with cheesecake and the two couldn't have gone better together. This is an absolute must try
