A: Foams at it pours but disappears almost immediately. Looks almost like soda. Hazy golden hue

S: Cloves, coriander, yeasty, malty. Smells like a classic hefe

T: High carbonation. Even though it smells like a hefe it tastes nothing like one. Complex flavors of malt, yeast, malt, and bread. Some spices, coriander, cloves, and citrus flavors. Doesn't really have a progression, just a jumbled mix of flavors. Alcohol is well hidden.

O: Was bottled on 2/7/2018, so it should still be fine to drink, but it almost feels like it's gone bad. Looking at the other reviews, maybe I got a bad batch. While the flavors are great, I'm not a fan of how it drinks like a beer/soda mix.

Tastes like a tripel and a German banana-beer were mixed. Very nice, fruity flavor, dark amber murky color, and German banana wheat smell. Overall, nice, but not my favorite flavor. Well done, though.

Decently medium mouthfeel like a wheaty beer. Moderate carbonation. Higher ABV (7.56) and it tastes like it. Mild hop taste. Taste of spices. Decently bitter.

My first North Coast beer was a great introduction to their lineup, and I'll definitely look for more of them in my area. This is a very solid Belgian, full of flavor and packing a little punch with the 7.6% ABV. Well balanced and nicely colored, this is a fine beer.
