3.58/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a light caramel brown that is nearly translucent. Had a large marshmallowy off-white head that subtly disappeared over the course of a few minutes. Pretty clear for the style.

Aroma: Upon opening the bottle I immediately smelled fresh banana bread but now that it's in the glass it's more of a spicy nose of clove and banana.

Taste: Has that banana bread taste up front and through the middle and then the cloves slowly take over until you are left with them in the aftertaste. The spices don't attack your tongue here which works in its favor. It has a quiet complexity that would make it sessionable for those who like Dunkelweizens. Not crazy about the clove taste it leaves on my tongue but that's more personal preference.

Mouthfeel: A pillowy medium bodied beer. Average drinkability. The aftertaste can get a little cloying about halfway through.

Final Thoughts: I like what Samuel Adams is going for here. I've had other beers of this style that are just over-the-top spicy but this one seemed to dial in that flavor a bit for optimum drinkability and enjoyment. It's also one of the more full bodied beers I've had from them. I wouldn't seek this out again but if it happened to be part of a mix pack or shared among friends I would enjoy it all the same.
