Notes/Commercial Description:
Dragonmead's signature product! This is the ultimate Belgian style. The very high gravity of this beer is balanced by the smoothness of its finish. Banana and Clove aromas come from the Belgian yeast strain combining with the generous dose of Belgian Candi Sugar. The Saaz hops help to give this beer a balanced bitterness with no noticeable hop aroma.

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Hazy light gold. Almost no head. No lacing.

S - Fruit, banana, nutmeg, malt, alcohol.

T - Fruity malt; heavy on banana. Mixes with nutmeg, clove. Alcohol zing at the end.

O - Is this a mead, by definition? I dunno but it this is the most unique beer I've yet to review. Very sweet. This will make a great desert beer.

Poured hazy light golden-amber with a decent head from a 12oz bottle.

Fruity, with hints of apricot nectar and light spicing.
Lightly sweet, but faintly bitter aftertaste. Moderate complexity.

Near medium body with medium, soft carbonation

O: very good American version.

Sampling right now on 7/29/14. My friend Rob brought me 2 bottles of this from their trip to Michigan last week. 4-pack is $12.00 (12 ounces). Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in a glass boot from Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn in Michigan.

Pours a apricot in color with a good 2+ finger white foamy head that settles down to a good 4mm. Spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is very pleasant and is of bananas, cloves and citrus for the most part. Even more going on with the taste. Lots of sweetness is right up front with the above flavors with some honey, black licorice with a hint of coriander even. Not to sweet and this is a sipper with the high alcohol content that warms your tummy. Perfect carbonation and full bodied with lots of good flavor. Goes down fairly easy but take your time and enjoy.
