Golden, straw colored beer served in a 4 oz glass on a Belgian flight. Has a light bodied, but creamy taste with the taste of bananas and yeast. A slight nuttiness. Comes with a great warmth from the higher ABV. Delicious.

Pours translucent pale yellow. Smell is faint banana, clove, and bread. Taste is same. Feel is smooth and not boozy at alll. Not bad, given ABV but not exceptional.

Golden-colored brew that forms a perfect head that laces very well. There is a little spice, but the beer is still smooth. Solid-bodied as well. For this particular style, this really does not lack much at all.

Pours a pale hazy gold with a huge 3 finger white head. Smells of spices and bananas, some malt. Tastes of banana esters, yeast, spices, and malt. Tasting no alcohol at all. Medium creamy mouthfeel with tons of carbonation. It's a good beer, just not my preferred style. But it's good for what it is. Not really worth $7 for a bottle though.
