Hazy dirty deep gold/bronze medium large/large bubbles thick frothy cream colored head that lasts quite a while. Medium carbonatiion. Very broad and complex malt and yeast aroma. Fruity and floral with banana peel and cloves dominating the profile.
The flavor starts with cloves and ends with pepper. You can find banana in it but not like the aroma suggests (there is however a tartness much like an unripe banana that surfaces toward the end (hopnanas?)). A lot of fruit and spice and there is a great caramel flavor that combines with delicate slightly burnt notes throughout.
Mouthfeel is amazing, rich and light at the same time (a trait often found in good Belgian beers), just perfect (the alcohol helps it along). You could drink this at any speed and enjoy it quite a bit, but you should probably give yourself some time and drink it as it warms. That's what I do.
Other notes that are unimprtant to you: Unibroue is one of my very favorite breweries. I love the way they have interpreted Belgian beer styles. Our dog is even named Maudite. She likes beer, but only gets a few drops on rare occasions (beer isn't good for dogs you know).
