This has that screw on thing, with a cork on it. It pours with a one finger off white head that retains pretty well and then laces nicely. The body is translucent and you can see bubbles rise to the top.

It smells of figs, cloves, bananas, cherries. It has a deep complex flavor where at smelling it it smells very fruity and heavy.

At first taste it is very very complex as it is a quad. As you continue to taste it you can taste cloves and bananas and figs that dissect and come out on their own. It also has cherries and other fruits as flavors that come out.

It is carbonated but not a whole lot. It feels heavy which makes it one of those beers that you drink a bit of and wait a bit and drink some more. Its not one of those that goes down smooth and quenches thirst. Its a complex thing to be tasted and evaluated.

Overall, its not one of those everyday beers but one of those every once in a great while. I like the tastes but the fruitiness is not something Im used to so I have to get used to it, but overall its good and enjoyable.
