The beer comes in a slightly hazy golden green yellow white wine color.

The aroma has banana, clove, a bit of citrus peel, a substantial bready sweetness. Quite sticky sweet for the style.

The flavor continues with that familiar banana and clove. A bit of orange rind. Some artificial banana flavor. Lots of peppery spice. A good amount of that phenolic note. There’s almost an alcohol or metallic flavor in there too. Lots of carbonation and a bit of drying on the finish.

Had this blind with Tank 7 and that beer won out by a bit. This just didn’t have enough refreshing notes and was a bit sweet.
