3.88/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a golden honey amber color thin white head not a lot holding to the glass when swirled... head is gone before I even get a chance to type this... nice fruity sweet smell definitely can smell the belgian influence here no hops are present in the nose though so not sure this is going to fit the ipa designation. Without the ipa tag it would have gotten a higher rating on smell... again belgian flavor is there sweet slightly bitter still not ipa bitter ... bananas maybe some bready biscuit notes as well... very enjoyable beer but I'm also on a belgian kick right now so it is also just what i'm looking for mouthfeel is creamy easily drinkable hops are present on the back of the tongue nice aftertaste. Would buy a 6er of this is it was reasonably priced.
