look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
Rich, golden hued body topped with a decent, white head. Fine sediment and plenty of carbonation.

Aroma:
Simple, pleasant, and sweet. Grains, banana, and Belgian yeast with hints of honey and citrus. The occasional prune note.

Taste:
Plenty of spicing and alcohol from beginning to end with a subtle sweetness. Banana bread, toasty malt, and corriander. Belgian yeast. Bubble gum character.

Mouthfeel:
Has a bite but it's crisp. A dry finish and medium body, plenty of carbonation.

Overall:
A solid belgian style ale but far from my favorite.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. No abv listed on the label either, but by the looks of things, this beer is contract brewed by the Milwaukee Brewing Co., for Furthermore Beer. Whatever. I got this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright orange colored body with three fingers of big bubbly off-white head with pretty underwhelming retention, especially given the style. Some nice fat streaks of lacing on the glass. Looks alright.

S - Smell is of earthy musty grains, funky yeast, alcohol fumes, brown bread, some nuttiness, and some mild banana / clove spice.

T - Taste is of bready malt, grains / grass / earth, slight hint of sticky caramel, booze heat, brettanomyces, cloves, light banana, & some kind of syrupy sweetness.

M - Feel is sticky, bready, and dry with some mild alcohol fumes on the finish. Medium bodied with high, bloating carbonation.

Overall, I'd say it was a drinkable endeavor, but certainly not something I would want for repeat drinking. It grew on me as I drank it, but I guess there was a bit too much sweetness, and too much carbonation for me to find enjoyable. In all, it was alright.

A solid example of the style. Enjoyable. Served with
homemade guacamole, and it paired quite well. Must
be the hints of lime and coriander.
We purchased this on a recent trip to Minnesota and will
look for it again when we are in Wisconsin next time.
