This one has been staring me in the face every time I open my fridge. I said enough's enough. Time to review this sucka!

Serving style : 12 oz classic New Belgium Bottle poured into clear glass for appearance

Appearance (4.75) : Massive head. Like four fingers. Impressive, yo. Dense copper red body. Leaves nice lacing on the glass. (I'm counting five rings at the end of the review.) The head just stays for days. I mean it. Floats frothy on top and won't go away. I have to give this beer props for appearance.

Smell (4.5) : Very fruity. Clean water. Heavy on banana and cinnamon. Some extra spice. Plums, figs, more cinnamon. Slight, slight booze. Smells just like my wife's fruit salad. Lovely.

Taste (4.75) : Delicious. Oh so delicious. A fresh carbonated zip gives way to pineapple, banana, and raisin. A lot like drinking a cinnamon fruit salad. I love it. A tiny sour and yeasty malt character clashes just a bit but nothing overwhelming. If it wasn't there, it wouldn't be beer. A spiced banana flavor with cinnamon and cloves. Banana bread finish. Fruity hops. Hints of figs and raisin. Zippy. Delectable.

Mouthfeel (4) : Light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated, rich, a little prickly, and then smooth. Slight sour bitter on the finish but nothing cloying or otherwise offensive. Finishes sappy, dry. Excellent.

Overall (4.54) : Man I'm having a fantastic night with beers. This beer rocks my world. Abbey is worth a serious look. Thoroughly impressed here. I'm totally in a good mood now. See what great beer does to a man?
