Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 2/1/15; into a Samuel Adam's perfect pint.
Appearance - a very cloudy dark yellow with a thick, white head that quickly recedes. Lacing is decent.
Smell - ripe fruit, banana bread, Carmel candy!
Taste - bubble gum, banana bread and citrus!
Feel - light and creamy body, mellow and flavorful!
Overall - wow, I'm surprised by how good this beer actually is!
