look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance. Pours a hazy amber-gold with 1.5 fingers of frothy white head.

Smell Caramel and banana, spicy belgian yeast and some bubblegum and cloves.

Taste. Caramel, banana, belgian yeast and cloves, and a little bit of light malt. Pretty light and refreshing.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body, medium-strong but soft and smooth carbonation.

Overall. I was surprised by how much I like this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a weizen.

A: Medium dark brown. Pours about a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Settles slowly and unevenly leaving little peaks and valleys as it does. Thick lacing.

S: Pecans, caramel, and roasted malt.

T: Woody, nutty, roasted malt, with hints of caramel.

M: Smooth. Syrupy and malty with a light buttery aftertaste.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is pretty great. Nice head, and lacing. Nose is full and flavorful. Flavor is nutty, and malty with some hints of caramel. Very well balanced. Overall, this is a great quaff.
