Appearance - The beer was a handsome reddish brown color with an off-white head. The lacing on the sides of the pint glass was evident.

Smell - I thought the aroma was fairly muted for something with the Belgian notation. There was a sweetness to the aroma.

Taste - On the initial, I detect banana, clove, cinnamon, and a certain bread/biscuit flavor. The banana grows progressively more sour toward the back of the tongue in the aftertaste. The sticky thick mouthfeel really allows this one to linger.

Mouthfeel - I think the most remarkable aspect of this beer is the mouthfeel. The manner in which it coats the tongue makes me want to call it a sticky beer.

Overall - I do not think the taste in this one is as full as I would like it to be. Still, it is a very good beer.
