Poured from bottle stamped 13May12 to a pint glass the beer pours a clear golden straw color with a dece 1 finger white head, some retention and nice lacing. The nose is very belgian dominated with strong banana and clove character, a noticeable sweet malt essence as well as perhaps a hint of apple. Not alcohol detected. A mild earthy hop character. The flavor starts crisp with a strong bite that gradually mellows to a blend of earthen hops, sweet malt, banana, clove, and apple flavor. Medium bitterness, again no alcohol detected. The flavor is sharp, overly so, in my opinion as it distracts from an otherwise enjoyable beer. Finishes crisp. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, not a bad beer but not outstanding. Glad I purchased only the 1.
