Gusher. Golden/amber pour, some yeast floating around. Medium-sized head ok persistence.
Aroma is delightful: lots of banana, doughy yeast, spicy cloves and earthy hops.
Taste doesnt quite follow through; some yeast, peppery phenols and spicy volatile alcohol present.
High carbonation works well to support the flavour profile. Soft alcoholic warmth.

A: Cloudy golden with a few round chunks of yeast floating within, little fine carbonation, 2 finger of creamy white head.

S: Fruity, apple sauce, apples, slight sharp cheddar bite, all that you look for in this style.

T: Follows the nose. Very dry, light sweetness, phenols, fruity with a hint of apples, cheddar bite.

M: Smooth medium body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation, dry finish.

O: It’s a fine beer. Feels like a perfect version of this style. Its great, no real faults and for that I will rate it higher, but nothing really interesting here. Feels like I’ve had this brew a dozen times. At that, its flawless. BBD is September 12, 2014, bottled on Dec 12, 2012.
