This one's quite the looker, there. Rich golden amber body with a soft white head taking up the top finger's width of the glass. Good retention, beautiful lacing.

Aroma is banana and yeast, somewhat bready and maybe some faint grassy hops.

Taste starts off with a bang of both sweet belgian notes and a surprising hop bitterness. Belgian fruits and sugars meet a harsh piney bitterness. A fair amount of alcohol as well.
The aftertaste is bitter and almost pithy but without the citrusy element if that makes sense. But also a high note of candi sweet. Also the fact that it's almost 9% is quite evident here.
