Had on-tap at Champs in State College, poured into a goblet.

L: Pours a clear dark golden color. Thick creamy white head... great retention and lacing.

S: Bananas and yeast... fresh grains, cloves and spices.

T/F: Fantastic flavor, complex Belgian yeasts give it a spicy flavor, cloves and nutmeg... bananas for sure, faint citrus in the background. Incredibly smooth and well carbonated as per the style. Warming at the back end... faint noble hops at the finish which lets it end clean.

O: A great American take on the style and on a par with the Belgian imports. I'd drink this any time. Avery continues to put out fantastic beer.

This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a mildly hazy bronzed brown color with a two finger white foamy level head. Once the head dies off, intricate spider web lacing roams around the glass nicely.
The smell had some pear, iced apples, Belgian yeasty/breadiness and a subtle amount of some Belgian spices.
The taste was moderately sweet with the spices making an effort to blend on in there. Spiciness rolls right on in on the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about light to medium on the body. Decent sipping quality to this one. Carbonation feels refined.
Overall, yeah, this is a good one, I'd have it again.

I can't find one positive thing to say about this one. After trying Hog Heaven and Maharaja my hopes were high. This is sweet, sharp, medicinal, and just plain gross. The best part of it was the strong alcohol presence, it helped dull my senses to the vomit flavored liquid. I hopeThe Reverend is better, bought that one too.

Poured a deep gold with a full and fluffy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was rich and full of Belgian spices and hints of pear. The taste followed with additions of Belgian yeast and slight bitter hoppy undertones. An easy drinker for the ABV and very tasty. I was really surprised by this one and will definitely look for it again in the future. A great American interpretation of a classic Belgian style.
