Pours a cloudy gold orange . Around a medium body with above average carbonation with a slight prickly feel. A pleasant appropriate feel for this style
The aroma is yeast and spice forward followed by a fruity banana smell. There's a bit of malt and a little floral aroma as well .
The taste is not sweet like others in this style that I've had, actually it comes off a bit dry. The yeast and spice come through first followed by an earthy,fruity, banana taste. Mild bitter finish that lingers awhile.
Overall an excellent beer that I would try again
