A-Pours a deep, impermeable golden color with a vibrant white head that dissipates quickly. Foam leaves little to no lacing on the sides of the glass.

S-Dark fruits (dates, figs, bananas), a bit of a cheesy yeast type smell typically more pronounced in wits, and a lot of spice.

T-A spice bomb. The flavors noted in the nose are washed out by spices on the palate. Finishes with that funky belgian yeast flavor. Alcohol isn't present at all.

MF- Crisp, light bodied, dry finish. Over-carbonated as well.

O-Mediocre. The nose is pleasant, but everything else disappoints.

Pours a very large, just off-white head with very good retention that becomes rocky as it recedes. Leaves a lot of impressive lacing. Beer is a golden peach color with a good deal of floaters and active carbonation. Smells of banana, yeast, and spices (coriander, can't pinpoint the rest).

Taste starts with a slightly grainy yeastiness, then moves on the banana, with a boozy, spicy, bready finish. Booze goes away quickly in the aftertaste and leaves yeasty bread, banana, and a bit of coriander, pepper, and clove lingering. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation.
