Bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A- It poured a deep orange color with a thin off-white head and a good deal of sediment. There was medium carbonation and light to medium lacing.
S- Its scent reminds me a lot of a hefe. Lots of sweet banana and spiced aroma with a hint of alcohol.
T- More reminders of a really robust hefe. I get a lot of fruit flavors (bananas and citrus) mixed with a good deal of spices. The alcohol is well masked.
M- A good thick mouthfeel. A bit heavier than a run-of-the-mill wheat beer, but it packs a lot more punch in the ABV than most of those too.
D- Very drinkable. At 9% ABV I would stop myself after a glass or two, but it wouldn't be for a lack of me wanting more.
Overall- This is a really good beer. It seems like a bit of a change-up from the past milestone beers, but I really like where Larry decided to go with this one. I only bought 2 bottles from the general store. I think I may have to pick up a six-pack the next time I'm in K-zoo.
