My impression of this beer with a quick taste before analyzing was that it was a classic, nicely balanced, smooth Belgian beer. It's always hard to review a beer that doesn't wow you, but impressed you with its simplicity, so...

The beer pours yellow, translucent to hazy, and you can see the carbonation that feed the substantial head. I don't get a strong nose, but there's some banana and maybe a slight hint of lemon.

The taste starts out a little yeasty and definitely carbonated. This carbonation holds as the taste adds a little tartness. A bit of banana sneaks in as well. The starting taste, however, remains as the backbone throughout. The rest of the tastes simply accent the flavor.
