L: Very hazy and doesn't look very filtered. Off colored orange. Big head at the beginning that dissipated rather quick.
S: Banana , spice, maybe a hint of wheat
T: The spices really hit me in this one, tons of different flavors. The clove and coriander really come out in this one with that slight banana sweetness at the end. Reminds you of an almost flavored banana bread with added spices
F: Nice mouth feel , kinda quick finish. Pretty mid tier dryness
Overall: Solid beer , but nothing to special. I think the finish is what puts me off the most.

Bottled 1/10/17. Maybe not ideal? Still quite good, though.
Pours a hazy yellow . (Like a Pils, but cloudy)
Aroma is of yeasty banana&bubblegum ester, with a very slight spice aroma.
Thick, puffy white head, similar to many Belgian-types that it resembles. Some long-lasting lacing & surface foam.
Flavor is similar to aroma, with slight hop bitterness & fine half-soft/half-prickly carbonation lingering briefly on the tip of the tongue.
Overall, a pleasant offering, and pretty much the same as a Belgian blonde, a la Ommegang Gnomegang. Worth a try.

Huge white, creamy, frothy head that sticks all the way down the glass. Very cloudy grapefruit juice in appearance. Lots of bubble gum, banana, and clove, in the aroma and flavor. Medium thin body, average carbonation, and a little slick in the feel. Very pleasant brew.
