Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head that sticks around for a minute or two. Wonderful nose of bananas and citrus. Crisp clean flavor with a hint of bananas and a hint of alcohol at the finish. Creamy mouth feel. With all the great reviews you don't need me to tell you this is an outstanding beer.

Tastes, smells and looks like a buff Heifewiezen. Cloudy gold with a minimal and quickly disappearing head. The smell is banana, clove lemon and bubblegum, but tempered by a stron malt backbone. This one is pretty smooth for the ABV. Quite a tasty treat.

Half litre bottle poured into an oversized Tripel Karmeliet tulip.

A: Colour was orangy golden, hazy. I expected a huge head to form, bit that wasn’t the case,
there was only a moderate amount of foam on top, not much lacing clung to the glass.

S: Yeast, clove, banana and esters.

T: Mainly followed the nose, but also added some orange and milky notes. The really impressive aspect was how well the booze was concealed.

M: Minimal carbonation, slightly thick texture, smooth.

O: Understated but classy, not much more to add.
