A brilliant, World class beer that is full of aroma and flavour

aroma: clove, spice and candy sugar

flavour: Banana, clove, spice, candy sugar, cinnamon and slight Belgian ale

One of my favourite beers - a classic that is very hard to beat. Would suit most palates from the experienced craft beer drinker to someone new to craft beer.
