Had on tap at Three Floyds Brew Pub 5/1/12

Let me start off by saying this is the strangest beer I've ever seen or tasted. Okay. Now that that's out of the way...

Appearance: A cloudy...dense...unfiltered...murky burnt orange body with very thin frothy head which left some lacing on the side of the glass. Again this is the strangest beer I've ever seen. Almost looks like a Hefe...but not. You would have to see it to understand. I would classify it as ugly and unappealing.

Smell: Sweet citrus hops with a mix of belgian spices and banana. Lots of booze can be detected as well. Smells like a mix between a good IPA and a belgian tripel.

Taste: Gives a nice citrus hop bite up front, then a flood of flavors typical of belgian styles. Banana, clove, yeast, spices. Throughout there is a nice bitterness that finishes fairly dry. This thing is bitter and a bit on the boozy side.

Mouth: Hop bitterness and alcohol burn tingle your palate and throat. For as bitter as it is it feels fairly smooth, however not too drinkable (paradoxical, huh?).

Overall: This beer was a hard one to review because it is so complex and unique. I feel like this brew was sort of dominated by booze and could have been much much better if that was tweaked a bit. It had some nice flavors but at times they were sort of clashing with eachother. This was by no means a bad beer, it was just...okay. Not for everyone.
