Poured clear gold with a slight foamy head that lingered. Right away I'm getting something I didn't expect - banana. Straight banana, no citrus or other fruits. Nothing floral. Not expecting that at all - I had no idea what to expect since I didn't know anything about this beer beforehand. Taste was more of the same, with some bitterness and hop bite coming into play. Mouthfeel was good - which seems to be a constant among the Greenbush beers I've tried.

Overall, very different and unexpected. Wondering if something was "off" with this bottle. Not necessarily bad, but not the profile I've read elsewhere. If Brother Benjamin is supposed to mystify, then this one is just straight up confusing.

Had a bit of a sweetness to it and is unfiltered. Good solid beer in Detroit.
