12 oz. bottle, 101111 - 101113 date.

A careful pour yielded a half finger of fluffy white head. Once the sediment is added to the pour, this beer clouds up almost to the point of opacity. Deep orange, pale yellow edged.

The smell is just as described... banana and clove. Smells sweet and easy-going.

Rich and creamy, almost like bananas and cream on the bulk of the taste. There's an awesome spice that really hits you on the aftertaste. Definitely save this beer from being a sweet, sticky mess. Alcohol warmth is prominent, yet reserved. And the mouthfeel? Great. Creamy, yet well carbonated and prickly to emphasize the spice.

All in all, a great beer. Personally, I wouldn't want it all the time, but if I'm ever in the mood for a little something sweet, I may just have to get some more.
