Pours a brilliant light golden with a lingering frothy ivory head. Aroma is floral, with green apple sharpness and notes of perfumey hops. Flavor reveals more sweetness, with cherry cough drop coming to mind. Finish is alcoholic. The phenols are overpowering.

Huge fluffy white head with great retention and chunky lacing. Brew is a thick, translucent, mango-orange gold.

Sharp, pepper and yeast aroma with hay and wheat.

Banana notes, sweet malt and yeast, clove, earthy. Tiny bit of alcohol. Nice earthy bitterness.

Thick and smooth mouthfeel. Chewy with sting.

Good, balanced strong ale; not oversweet, nor too bitter.
