Served from bottle into a shaker. Poured brown with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount very quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, bread, wheat, and grain. The flavor was of sweet malt, bread, wheat, grain, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. While this was a decent example of the style, it really didn’t stand out from others I have had. There were some good things going on here with the bread and wheat, but also some things that it could have done without as in the earthiness. While it was nice to have something different going on, it can also hurt a brew unfortunately. Worth trying at least once to judge for yourself, but I doubt I will be having it again if I am completely honest as there are better easy to get ones out there.

Pours a hazy copper color with a tight off-white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smells of clove and banana.

Tastes of the banana mostly with background notes. Banana is very present with some other citrus notes behind it. Clove gives a decent spice note. Bread notes come through as well with some dark fruits.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Cloudy deep chestnut color with a small, but thick frothy head. Spicy banana and moderate clove-like phenols over some toffee, raisins, and light bread crust. More clove in the flavor...banana sweetness and a touch of brown sugar and wheaty tartness. On the lighter side of medium-bodied and a bit creamy, finishing quick and dry. Nothing thrilling or complex, but not terrible.

Decent one finger head with a decent retention. Light brown in color with some cloudiness.

Smell is primarily of clove. Banana is there, but is dominated by clove. Some caramel malt aroma exists as well.

Taste is of a nice caramel maltiness with a dryness on the palate as well. Clove comes through primarily with a nice banana fruitiness.

Dryness on the palate, but with a maltiness. Could be a little less attenuated to bring the beer around, which also effects drinkability.
