look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a cloudy rust color with thin cream colored head; delicate sheeting into a few dots. Smell: sweet wheat bread, caramel, big clove, and a banana pudding (chemically banana) note. Taste: banana pudding made with cloves, topped with caramel. If you made this, it would taste just like this beer. There's really nothing else going on... a note of brown bread. It's enjoyable and, well, it's hard to completely whiff on this style, but it's not even on the same field as a poor-man's version of Aventinus. 2014 fall bottling.

A: Dark, copper brown. Thin white head

S: over-ripe bananas, apples and spice, bread crust

T: Sweet and malty upfront, spiciness from the Belgian yeast and finishes with some spice and a maybe a little funk?

M: solid carbonation gives a strong effervescent mouthfeel.

O: picked this bottle up out of curiosity. I don't usually like the Belgian yeast taste and shy away from beers like this but this was very good for both taste and mouth feel. Would drink again

Muddy copper. Nose is bready and that old familiar funk is also present. Nutty but not really getting the traditional banana notes. The finish is slightly cidery.

The beer comes in a dark red orange.

The aroma is of roasted apples, ripe banana, clove, a hint of breadiness and nuts.

The flavor flavors of those fruit flavors, a medium plus theme of phenolic character. There's a touch of sweetness and breadiness, along with nuts.

The beer has high carbonation and tastes very much like a traditional German stalwarts in the style. A wonderful American attempt at the style.
