Pours hazy light amber, thin head forms and recedes.

Nose is big on banana and spice but not much else.

Flavor is more complex than anticipate - really bright flavors of banana, clove, allspice with a bit of funk. Really nice and a great balance - the higher ABV really helps bring it all together with a bit of warmth and a nice sweet aspect.

Feel is right on, it's very much a nicely carbonated, light, clean finish. Would definitely have again, one of the best things I can remember having from Victory.

This is a very interesting and complex beer with some diverging flavors. The flavors seem to meld well and doesn't distinguish between sections of the palate. I get clove, bubblegum, smoky grain, wheat, caramel, woodsy spice, Apple's, yeast and even a nutty barley.

pours a hazy amber with a medium head. nose; big notes of toasted bread rind, caramel & dark fruit juice. taste; toasted malt, brown sugar, sweet apple, hops, light fig, light banana, with clove & nutty notes on the end. lightly spicy (cinnamon) and oaky aftertaste. medium carbonation & mouthfeel. not my favorite style, but i can see this making a great fall drink.

Pours from the bottle dark amber with a 1/2 head that settles to a thin film and ring on top. Smells like bready grains and banana. Taste is sweet malt, wheat and banana. A nice example of the style.
