Pours a deep gold with an off-white head, inch or so, with good retention.

Banana esters with bretty yeast notes and coriander in the nose.

Massive flavor profile here. Bananas, coriander, honey, caramel, buttered bread, and Belgian candi sugar that tends towards an apple-like sweetness. Followed up by a bite of pine hop bitterness.

Full, thick body with a sting of carbonation on the roof of the mouth and boozy warmth going down.

Really good slow sipper of a beer, would have this again and again. Haven't had a beer with a flavor this strong and complex in a while. A must-try.

Fat Heads : Zeus Juice
Belgian Strong Pale Ale
10% ABV

LOOK: Clear deep golden ale with a fierce crackling head. Appears like a Belgian strong pale.

SMELL: Estery yeast lending cotton candy and banana aromas, bready, yeasty aroma with some pleasant floral notes.

TASTE: Soft fruit notes of banana and pear, bubblegum, sweet biscuity malt character and candy sugar giving the brew a more than adequate dryness.

FEEL: Medium bodied, dry, high level of carbonation. '

OVERALL: A tasty rendition of a strong Belgian pale from the miracle workers at FatHeads. Another great beer, really flavorful and damn strong.

Pours a hazy, copper color. 1/4 i ch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and good lacing. Smells of strong liquor, alcohol, yeast, and slight bacterial funk. Fits the style of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable astringency. Tastes of strong liquor, alcohol, yeast, hint of hop, and slight bacterial funk. Overall, good blend, better body than aroma, and a decent complexity.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a sweet to dry banana bubblegum. In the taste, dry candy sugar and a slight banana peel flavor, with notes of alcohol. An alcohol like bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry bubblegum sugary aftertaste. A bit dry and a bit boozy, it is decent though.

This poured out as a slightly cloudy yellow color. The head was white and fizzy, some light lacing and retention. The smell of the beer is grainy and has a pleasant earthy hop aroma. The taste of the beer has a pretty balanced flavor of grains, hops and some minimal spiced notes. The mouthfeel is lively with lots of carbonation to it. Overall this beer is good but not great in my opinion. I feel it could be better but still drinkable and worth trying.

A- Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Head has ok retention and becomes a ring around the edge. Not much lacing left behing.

S- Aroma is dominanted by Beligan yeast and spice. A touch of cracker malts, a bit of banana and a bit of an Earthy smell.

T- Follows the nose really well. Again a huge amount of Beligan yeast and spice. These two dominant just about everything this brew has to offer. Very light fruits.

M- Medium in body and a good amount of carbonation.

O- I'm not really caring for this one. If you really like Beligan styles you might like this one.
