Poured into a pint glass, it has a nice clear golden body with little carbonation and a beautiful, thick off white head which is bubbly and slowly dissipates. I pick up hints of banana bread, hops, and some citrus fruits to include: grapes, grapefruit and oranges. It has a medium to heavy body that just envelopes your tongue and really warms up your mouth with that alcohol feeling. It’s bitter in the corners of your mouth and tart in its aftertaste, but fairly smooth overall.

On-tap at the brewery.

A: Served a lightly hazy dark orange with a thick white head that slowly faded into a fuzzy film leaving decent lacing.
S: A banana lovers beer. The nose is full of overly ripened bananas, pungent banana skins, and a good dose of clove. Very sweet and sugary smelling.
T: Again, there is just a stupidly delicious amount of ripe banana. The wheat comes through in a banana bread-like way. The finish is a bit warm with alcohol and reminds me of bananas foster. I get a note or two of cinnamon mixed with the clove as well.
M: Thicker body, viscous mouth, thin carbonation and a bit of warm alcohol.
O: Really interesting and potent flavors. This would make a great dessert beer.
