Poured from a 17 ounce Euro-brown bottle into a shaker. A moderate pour produces about an inch of off-white head that dissipates rather quickly but leaves a pretty stick 1/8 inch residuum coating the top. The beer is a hazy yellow-amber color with moderate carbonation.
Very enticing, fruity aroma- yeasty, tart, spicy, tang, apple pie, banana, raspberry, cherry and a light earthy funk. These aromas/suggestions carry over into the flavor, with the banana accentuated a bit at first, but with the other fruits catching up. I perceive a burpy, frothy, pungent mass coating the back of the mouth and producing monumental burps. A nice rich caramelly malt backs up the yeast, fruit, funk, and tang. A strong hint of dark fruit lurks in the background and lingers in the aftertaste.
This pint-plus bottle was purchased for $3.49 at Hennessey Grocery in Butte, Montana. This strikes me as quite an excellent deal, considering the obvious excellence of this beer (and the distance traveled!). Kudos to the Hennessey for making this exotic foreign beer available in my little corner of the mountains...
