Decanted from 16 oz can into a conical pint glass; no production date, but purchased at brewery.
A: Poured a slightly hazy golden color, orange tinged, with a half inch, foamy, white head. Effervescence lingers nicely after pour.
S: Light malts, banana, strong with cloves. Reminded me of baked ham at Easter.
T: Light malts, honey, but again clove notes very strong; bitter throughout with limited aftertaste
M: Light to medium bodied, nicely effervescent.
O: Very nicely constructed brew. In terms of flavor, shared a lot in common with a Weissbier or Belgian Wit.

Found a 16 oz. can of this at Half Time in Poughkeepsie and was attracted by the brand name as well as the overall label. Fortunately, the product itself turned out to be equally worth purchasing. A big surprise from Broken Bow - first higher ABV product I've had from this brewery. Plenty of taste for a Golden Ale with no alcohol burn from the rather daunting 10%. Not a beer to consume in volume but a great choice for the last beer of the night. I'd be happy to purchase it again if I come across it in my travels.

Tall can w/o canning date or other info

Pours heavily hazed, quickly clearing out medium khaki head, leaves a tiny bubble film, thin collar and delicate mini fields of lacing

Belgian yeast on the nose, with some cloves and bubble gum coming through...nice

Tasty Belgian, warming alcohol present, potent notes of coriander, more cloves, more bubble gum, Belgian yeasty/spicy goodness.

Nicely done, best brew I've had yet from BBB
