3.43/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Taken from my beer journal dated 6/13/12
Appearance: 750mL bottle poured into standard pint. Colour is a nice walnut-brown with a large two-finger head that fades to a puffy layer on top with minimal lacing. No visible carbonation but it certainly is audible!
Smell: Faint aromas of sweet malts, bready yeast, and walnuts.
Taste: Well-balanced flavours of sweet, nutty malts, spicy yeast, and a warming boozy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body is thick, silky, and alive with plenty of carbonation. Finishes with a lingering stickiness.
Overall: A solid brew. In general, it is a pretty sweet beer but not in a cloying way. It is nicely balanced and interesting enough for me to want to finish the bottle.
Serving type: bottle

4.03/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A: cloudy dirty/muddy brown with minimal head and lacing; maybe a notch up as I am not sure it might hit style right
S: definitely get the banana witbier notes, but thereus a nuttiness that might disguise itself as earthy
T: banana, pepper, and other standard flavors. Then in the back, walnut quite distinctively counters the front tastes. The finish surprisingly brings some banana back in (along with its sweetness) but the walnut holds on as well
M: oily nuttiness that epitomizes the walnut essence of the beer to me, reminding me most specifically if the feel from the walnut skins after a few nuts have been consumed
O: rated on the fact I think it hits the style and the novelty of recipe. Have had this before and enjoyed it, this taste confirmed my like of the beer and the rating follows.
Serving type: on-tap
