3.35/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from the bottle.

A- Pours a golden straw color. One and a half finger white head shows medium retention. Nice streaky lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Banana and clove really go into overtime in the nose covering the entire aroma. Peppery spicey notes as well in the front with a undertone of sweet malts. Bubblegum like notes as well in the backend. Light fruits also come into play in the aroma as well. Alcohol hints are more jumpy in the ending.

T- Once again like the nose it has a huge banana and clove taste with hints of belgian yeast as a whole. Sweet malts toward the middle with hints of stone fruit. Ending of the beer has a sweet honey like flavor with rock candi. Alcohol is coming about in the backend with a lot of heat more so than I remembered before this beer.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little high I thought for the beer. Clove and banana with a hint of sweetness left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly alcohol heat, honey like sweetness, and light malts. High alcohol drying on the palate after each sip. Flavors were balanced toward what the style was. No real off flavors are present in the beer.

D- This beer is average to me. Nothing really screams out for me to drink more than a glass of it. The ABV is in the middle range but doesn't seem like it. The alcohol seems to pop out more like a 9 or 10 percent beer.
