Served from a 12oz bottle in a weiss glass at between fridge and cellar temperature. Swirled in a bit of the yeast from the bottom of the bottle as well.
A - Nutty brown color with a good, inch-thick light tan head that has good staying power. Sporadic lacing at best.
S - Malty and sweet, with some overripe banana and characteristic hints of wet cardboard. Mild spicy cloves and ripe figs. Nothing off base or out of the ordinary.
T - Satisfyingly malty up front without any overkill on the sweetness. Even-handed delivery of bananas and clove. Turns only mildly tart in the yeasty middle, and wraps up with a semi-dry swallow, leaving distant notes of smoke and dark fruit behind. Very well balanced.
M - Bright and tingly on the way in, turning fluffy and filling, but a tiny bit too much so to earn the "creamy" descriptor. Swallow is quick and simple.
D - Lots of well-rounded taste combined with a conservative take on the style makes this one a very easy drinker.
Beer-business politics aside, any BA who won't admit that this is a really good American take on this style of beer is simply a poseur Anheuser-Bush basher, or a person who's not objective enough to rate within the style.
