Clove, banana, alcohol is there and the balance is not where it needs to be. Odd orange and wheat flavors.

Clear golden body with lots of bubbles rushing up. Creamy white head. Lots of lace left dripping on the glass.

Warm spice, clove, banana. Really nice yeast ester flavors.

Smooth and medium bodied and medium carbonation.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Fairly clear. Small white head and a thin collar.

Smell - Quite sweet smelling. A caramel, nutty sweetness. Fruity sweetness, too. Yeast flavors give a little bit of a banana aroma.

Taste - Like the aroma, but the yeast flavors are even stronger. Hefty bitterness and a toasty malt flavor, too. The finish has more of the Belgian yeast fruitiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. As sweet as it smells, it's pretty dry and bitter in the taste.

Overall - A good version of a mostly unexciting style. I did not expect to drink as much of this as I did (still only about a third of the bottle, though).
