Extremely see-through bright yellow.

Bright white head which dissipates but does not disappear.

Strong lacing.

Banana nose; slight cloves. Definitely Belgian yeast, here.

Thin mouthfeel, almost watery; hops smack this lips.

Apple, banana & cinnamon bread; easily quaffable, with a champagne finish. A worthy beer.

From notes 1/4/12: Pours clear straw yellow with half a finger of white, very short-lived head that leaves very little surface cap and no lace. Aroma is Belgian yeast fruity esters especially bananas, cloves, a little stone fruit, bread and spices. Taste is similar with the addition of coriander and phenols. There is a noticeable hop character and more bitterness than anticipated from the style. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation.

Pours crystal clear straw colored under a sudsy white foam cap. Bread and yeast on the nose and palate with light fruit. A very creamy rich texture with a medium light body and above average carbonation.

poured into a chalice, color is gold, head is bright white and dense. lingers well.

smell is subdued, subtle bread and toast, hint of yeast off flavors

taste is somewhat flat, light bread and toast and wheat with yeast pepperiness, but muted.

mouthfeel is a bit sharp given the flavor experience, biting and lingering.
