Nice amber color with a substantial khaki whipped-egg-like head. Nose of Belgian yeast, banana, orange, sweetness, a little booze. Taste features some yeast flavors like banana and esters. Sweetness, booze, and pepper in the mix. I'm guessing the ABV is 10%+, though it's not published anywhere. Mouthfeel is medium with the foamy head adding to the fullness. Overall it's a nice beer but I was expecting more complexity from this special NG one-off. EDIT: I agree with the previous reviewer VStarWalt who compared it to Chimay Blue. Very similar flavor profile. Also, bottle cap seal showed some bubbling, but still apparently intact.

I bought this at the brewery where they sold them in pint bottles with a limit of two per customer. I would compare it very favorably to Chimay Blue label. I had a bottle Chimay around and drank that a few nights later. Then rotated back to the second bottle of New Glarus a few nights after that. Highly recommended.
