Appearance.. dark brown color. Pours with about a half inch of fluffy cream colored head. Visible yeast and residue in glass. Probably not filtered.

Smell... Strong fruity and banana notes.

Taste... tastes a bit malty. A little sweet with slight sourness in the middle. Moderate bitter finish

Mouthfeel... The beer has nice density or depth. Not too light or watery. Slight sting on the tongue because of the alcohol.

Overall... A nice enjoyable beer, but there is nothing spectacular about the beer.

An interesting dark Belgian beer. A little spicy with a big body. Kind of hard to describe in my opinion, and overall, I actually wasn't a huge fan. The whole beer just seemed kind of muddled to me. If I saw mix packs from 21st, I wouldn't be upset if this beer was in it, but I'd probably never pick up the beer on its own aging considering all the other really good beer they make.
