look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottle was purchased and consumed at the Broad Street Bullies Pub at Xfinity Live! in Philadelphia.
Beer was brought to the table uncaged and uncorked along with the proper glassware, a tulip glass.
A - The beer pours a very cloudy, hazy golden color. A one finger, rather dense head on the initial pour. Small particles of yeast from the in-bottle fermentation are floating around. A small amount of lacing left after drinking.
S - A nice aroma of yeast and fruit-like sweetness.
T - A very smooth, easy drinking beer. There is a mixture of spiciness, along with the classic banana taste. A background of an earthy/grassy taste is noticeable as well. The alcohol is pretty well disguised but does peak through a bit during the sampling.
M - A moderate to heavier consistency. Light carbonation.
O - A good beer. This is a style that I don't normally lean towards but since it was a beer I had never had before and had heard a lot about, I decided to give it a try. I know that I was out at a pub but at $9/bottle, I don't think this is worthy of a repeat purchase on a return visit. It's not that its a bad beer, just simply that for a cost/enjoyment value, I'd get something else.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
a: golden hue with an ample white/slightly off-white head. Small lacing that retains fairly well.
s: On the nose I get pear, apples, and honey.
t: prickly carbonation, slightly tart with lemon, pepper, coriander coming through; finish with floral, spicy hops lingering
m: high carbonation, medium-light body
o: nice beer. I don't drink a lot in this style, but it's one of the better versions I've had in recent memory. This inexplicably sat in my cellar for a year (bottled 4/22/2013), and I am pleasantly surprised at how it has held up. Will get again next time I am within their distributors' range.
