Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: A hazy faded straw colored body under a white sea-foam head. Nice foamy lacing.

Aroma: Cardboard, yeast, banana.

Taste: Yeast with cardboard dryness, then faint banana notes. Very dry alcoholic finish.

Mouthfeel: Heavy and boozy.

Overall: A tasty brew, but very boozy and dry.

Very light golden brown color. 15 bucks for a 4 pack. A little hoppy for my liking. I was looking for a beer to mimic tremens for cheaper- this is not the answer

BBD 7/16. Clear very light amber pour (pale gold). Superb head, lacing and retention. Wonderful nose of spicy Belgian yeast, banana, sweet fruit (pear with hints of orange) and subtle biscuit. Light medium body, yet nice and slick. Heavily carbonated with rich effervescent rushes throughout the profile. The flavor profile is of normal intensity, complex and balanced. The 8.5% alcohol is perfectly hidden. It begins with the fruit flavors, then flows into a light biscuit sweetness. In the middle, an effervescent light hop bitterness emerges coupled with a light note of pepper. The finish is rather clean, somewhat dry and a light bitterness lingers a bit over a blend of the previous flavors while notes of clove come to the forefront. World Class and one of the highest scores I've ever given.
