Golden yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a frothy white foam that reduced to a thin wispy cap. Banana and earthy spicy aroma are dominant with biscuity malt and yeast beneath. Medium bodied with rich, aggressive, tangy carbonation. Spicy flavors up front that last throughout. Sweet fruit and banana flavors in the background at the beginning that slowly grow to the end. Yeast and light biscuit malt backbone throughout. Banana flavors intensify a this warms as well as the higher booze content. Enjoyed this immensely. Glad that Victory is a local brewery.
