look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Murky sunburnt lemondrop yellow, a foamy white head slowly calms to a frothy film. Random foamy lacing.

Aroma: Lots of bubblegum sweetness and yeast. Some banana and fruit sweetness.

Taste: Very much like the aroma, a banana and bubblegum backbone hold up most of the ale. A dry finish that has a bit of an alcoholic edge.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, dry.

Overall: A bit too heavy for my liking but certainly flavorful in the true Belgian way.

From a 12 oz bottle.
Hazy yellow-gold body topped by a white head that has little retention.
Slightly funky and yeast, but mainly fruity aroma. The flavor follows.
Medium body and carbonation.

A- light yellow with tints of orange. A huge 4 finger fluffy head makes me stop my pour and it leaves a gorgeous lacing on the inside of the pint.

S- strong banana notes with hints of citrus hops that come through. Finally, grain rounds it out.

F- strong grain and banana and that is it.

M- alcohol and warm belgian ale as it goes down.

O- A good brew and strong. A sipper but dont take too long with it.
