I'm not sure what they put in this, but it gave me hives. I've never had an allergic reaction before. The beer was so fantastic, however, that I finished the last pint before having my girl friend drive up to Walgreens to get me some benadryl.

Good beer. The first one is always a little sharp on my tongue, but still enjoyable.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.

The color is a slightly hazy yellow/gold with two fingers of foamy white and some nice thick lacing left on the glass.

The smell is a little boozy with a good Belgian candy aroma. There is sweetness here with some slightly funky Brett aroma with a dry grape aroma as well.

The taste is filled with an earthy malt backbone that is present throughout. There is a nice mashed banana flavor that wrestles with a sweetness that appears with some grape skin flavor.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a smooth drinkable feel. There is a great warming feel that helps ease down and leaves pleasant aftertaste that gives off a slight sweetness before dissipating.

Very sweet. Not very complex.
