Tennessee

4.65/5  rDev +13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3 | overall: 5

A- This beer poured a dark chocolate amber. The tan head was very thick (about three fingers), had great retention, and left chunky lacing.

S- Banana attacked the nose immediately. Underneath that was a hint of clove and alcohol. Quite lovely indeed.

T- The banana from the nose is back and this time it brought some more complexity. Chocolate, bread, and black pepper all tantalize the tongue until some subtle dry hops hamper the sweetness. Very well-balanced indeed.

M- Medium bodied with thin-to-medium carbonation. So far the only lackluster quality of this beer.

D- This is dangerously sessionable. The flavors don't fatigue the palate at all and the medium body goes down smoothly. I could drink this all day. Hats off to New Belgium for this beauty.

Served in a Unibroue tulip.

A: Beautiful reddish brown, I could gaze into this for a while. Substantial head, could have lasted a bit longer, but satisfying nonetheless

S: Wow! Bananas and spice from the moment the bottle was opened. Really invites me to move to the first quaff.

T: And the taste completely fulfills what the aroma promises. Liquid banana bread, fresh spices, lots of pepper. Ginger snaps? An old world bakery in a bottle. Finishes with a bit of bubble gum-- where did that come from? What a trip.

M: Quite satisfying in the mouth, the crispness highlights the pepper and other spices.

D: At 9%, you'll want to savor this one. Wish I could clear the evening calendar and have another. Will definitely pick up a couple more before they sell out.

Quite unique, like the other lips of faith varieties. So glad I spotted this on the shelf while looking for something else.

4.78/5  rDev +16.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours fairly dark with a nice creme colored head that almost seems like nitro. Almost looks like a soda in color.

Smell - Lots of fruit and spice in the smell. I smell mostly banana and clove.

Taste - Flavor is very similar to the smell. Taste banana and a delicious aftertaste that lingers around.

Mouthfeel - I was surprised by the amount of carbonation, it was a lot more then I was expecting. But it really worked well and helped the flavor stick around.

Overall - I really enjoyed this beer! Normally I am not a huge fan of "spicy" beers but this was really good. You really can't taste the high ABV at all and it is very drinkable. I will definitely be buying a few more for my stockpile.

4.8/5  rDev +17.4%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bought a 1pint, 6oz bottle from the Wolf Public House in Ballwin, MO. for $9. Poured from the bottle into a clear Pint Glass. No B.O.D. on the bottle but had a 5/24/11 date on the box.

Appearance- Pours a deep brown body with a 2 finger head and has a great retention. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass but nothing special.

Aroma- Banana upfront aroma with a peppered corn background. A clove and caramel that is not over the top but perfect for what the brewer was hitting on.

Taste- Banana again that makes up the taste and then goes into sweet mode.. Very creamy and has a french vanilla or even a frothed milk aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Great amount of carbonation, and leaves a bitterness on the palate.

Overall- One of the best beers of the month! We enjoyed over 12 of these as a Pub in the last week (employee by employee) and now I'm reviewing this one. Haven't seen much in the stores yet or even at other beer bars. Will recommend for anyone! Best Dunkelweizen I've ever had.
