Very unique. All the fruitiness of Belgian ale with lots of clove banana and maltiness goodness. Work in the nice hoppy finish that one would expect from west coat friends. The finish also let's through the banana bread taste as well. After thought of the combination of two great types of beers makes this one of my recent favorites! Very exciting new type of beer for me.

Server on tap in a straight pint glass.

A- Light amber, good clarity, white head.

S- Spice, cloves, a little fruitiness including some light banana.

T- Bitter, lots of spice character of cloves and maybe even a touch of caraway?

M- Medium nice and creamy

O- I didn't really care for this one, I'm not really a fan of the style in general, I don't find Belgian yeasts really complement higher hopping that well. One note of caution for me though is that I had this at a place where the beer sometimes has a funny taste to it, so I might have to grab a bottle of this sometime to compare.
