Very foamy head with an aroma of bananas and other fruit. Slightly hoppy with lots of fruit flavor. slightly bitter after taste. There's some complexity in this brew that I have a hard time pinpointing but thats what makes it interesting Overall an interesting beer that I would have again. New to this review thing, doing my best.

This pours a semi-cloudy amber, orange color with a giant foamy head. The aroma is filled with yeast, citrus, banana, and other floral scents. The taste is quite citrusy with lots of sweet fruits with a yeasty finish. I will agree with a lot of people and say this is way too carbonated. Still quite smooth but there is room for improvement.

poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip

A - Dirty, hazy apricot hue. I poured it so gently and slowly, still took 2 pours as the massive foamy head erupted above the top of my tulip. Head retention is lasting a very long time.

S - Belgian yeast, rotten banana and other fruits (not as bad as you think). Sugar and spice, with a bit of floral hops and wet hay.

T - Belgian yeast and spice up front. Wet hay and some ripe fruit (no banana). A bit of floral hop and sugar round it out. Interesting.

M - Heavy carbonation, light bodied. Finish is slightly dry.

O - I typically like this style, but this one left me scratching my head. It is an odd combination of wet hay, fruit, spice and hop. I'll stick with a more traditional style, but this was good to try.

Poured into a Great Divide tulip. Pours a cloudy medium golden amber with massive overproduction of foam; a careful pour was 80% foam and it took a long time to get enough in the glass for a taste; the massive head dissipated completely to a thin film, ring around the glass and pillowy lacing. Aroma of light bready malt, both Belgian and wild yeast, Belgian spicing and a hint of citrus. Flavor is very light bready malt with a strong dose of Bretty wild yeast and hints of apple and stone fruit juice. Finishes with lingering wild yeast and light hops. Light bodied. I'm not a huge fan of wild yeasts, but enjoy a touch of Brett or wild yeast to a sufficiently complex ale; this one did not support the level of wild yeast to my taste. It is light and overall pleasant, but too single note to hold my interest.
